Homemade Card Ideas That
Will Make Every Card Your Own Creation
This is where you'll learn basic
homemade card ideas that I use every day in my business. You don't need to be
an artist to use these embellishments.
This is for the whole family, anyone can do it. For many of you it'll be the start of
a journey that I'll take you on that will end with you knowing how to make
greeting cards from scratch.
At first, you'll copy what I do but
before you know it, you'll be using the techniques you've learned to do your
own thing and start making
greeting cards that are truly unique. Experiment
with the materials and use them in different applications, you'll be surprised
at the great results.
Tip: Don't overdo the embellishment. We
don't want to overpower the original image which should be the viewer's main
focus. We want to add just enough embellishment to create more interest in the
card. Less is often more.
Branches & Berries
Remember that these are my every
day ideas. Each new image is thought provoking....how can I make it more interesting?.....more
exciting?.....more colorful?.....more fun? We are only limited by our own
imaginations. We all have new ideas. Please share yours with me and I'll post
the best ones on the site.
There's no reason why you can't use
these homemade card ideas on any of the three card types, but you'll find that some will only
work on the ClassyCard™ or the UniqueCard™. Because it comes without a border,
the UniqueCard™ has the most flexibility for customization.
What you'll learn....
There's a short video at the end of most of the lessons.
