Cardmaking is so simple a child can do it and at the same time some homemade cards are beautiful works of art. And yes, something can be simple and very beautiful at the same time. That's a trick you have to learn to. Sometimes simple is better. Straight lines, simple color blends, easy on the eyes...yet very lovely to behold. SO...are you ready to begin your card making lessons?
When you have completed your very first homemade card...do me a favor...send in a picture of it. And then again when you make your second...I'd love to see them all and of course, I will be showing you all of mine.
Did you ever wonder how I began to make my own greeting cards? I saw this ad online one day...and I thought, "I'd like to do that!" So I signed up and that was that. Now I'm like an old pro at it and I can teach you all the secrets and short cuts to cardmaking that I learned.
The best thing about this program...well, other than the hundreds of ideas, tips, videos to help with glue application, cutting styles, and even how to make four cards from one sheet of paper...(those weren't the BEST THINGS!) the best thing about this program is, if you don't like it you can cancel it in the next 30 days...and get your money back. So take a look at this wonderful cardmaking course and see if it's for you.
So, where do we begin our cardmaking instructions? I guess we should start right at the very beginning. Let's see why are we making this card. That will help us figure out what we want it to look like. It will give the card a "feel".
Say it's for the birth of a new baby boy...little boys will be big cardmaking theme for me...I going to be a Grandmother this year...I am getting my first Grandchild in November of this year and IT'S A BOY!
Anyway, back to cardmaking...so we are going to make a card celebrating the birth of a new baby and we know it is a boy. So first let's pick a color...green, yellow, blue are all good. I am picking blue. Any neutral color or not so neutral color will be perfect. Pink probably isn't a good choice...but if that's what you want to use...you can, since you are the one making the card.
What shall we decorate it with. What says Congratulations New Little Guy to you? Is it a cowboy theme or building blocks, you pick out the theme that works for you.
I am going to pick the baby blocks theme.
