Card Making Tips:
- A little patterned paper can go a long way! Cut into your pretty papers and use them. They are a great way to add color and interest with very little effort.
- Tuck your ribbon in between card stock layers. That will help it stay in place better. You can wrap your ribbon all the way around your white card stock and tie the ends in a knot on the front OR you can lay a piece flat across, tape the ends to the back of the white card stock and use a smaller piece of ribbon to tie the knot on the front.
- Pop your main image up with dimensionals. It’s such a little thing that adds a lot to a card!
- Add a little pop of color. This is a lovely monochromatic card in white and blue but when you add those little pink hearts they just POP! Add little pops of color to your cards with shapes punched out of card stock or pre-made embellishments.
Now go make a card and send it to a friend. Your kindness might just change everything for them.
