A Simple Card Making Tutorial

For people that aren't into card making it can all seem a bit complicated.  Today you can buy dies, masks, embossing and cutting machines, embossing powders, punches, digital software etc. Over the past couple of decades I have tried all types of card making and I enjoy the most simple form of card making most of all.

  • Stamp an image onto pretty paper.
  • Cut it out.
  • Stick it on to a card base.
  • Stamp on a sentiment.

Simple instructions but it's the artists eye and use of materials which make it look so good.

The simple ideas are always the best but you have to be able to think them up first! Lovely Simone. :)

I love the simplicity and sentiment of your card, Simone - you make the art of making it sound and look so easy but you do have to have an eye for space and colour too and you certainly have that:)
