Make Your Own Greeting Cards

Card making is a popular craft that anyone can enjoy without spending alot of money. Most of the supplies needed for card making can be found around in your home. Look in your childrens' rooms or schoolbags and you should be able to gather the basic tools and materials.

Listed below are some basic card making supplies that you need to make your first card.

A4 size white cardstock
double sided foam tape
a pair of scissors
color pencils, watercolors, or crayons
steel ruler
rubber stamp
black inkpad
black writing pen
First, cut the white cardstock into 2 pieces. Fold one piece of cardstock into half at the centre to make a single fold 4" x 6" greeting card and put it aside. Then ink your rubber stamp with the black inkpad and stamp on the other piece of white cardstock. Color the stamped image and trim around the black outline. Now attach the colored image onto the front of the single fold card with double sided foam tape. Place it in the middle of the top portion of the card. And finally, write a greeting below the stamped image. And voila ... your first handmade greeting card.

Now make more of these and send them to your friends. Let them know how much you love and treasure them and their friendship.
