    Default Do you make cards?

    I'm just curious if anyone here makes their own cards? I try to make mine, but they take a while for me to make. It doesn't come easy to me.

    If you make your own, is there a site you use for card templates/ideas?

    I have made greeting cards for years! (since I was in highschool!) That is what made me want to start scrapbooking when I had my son. I hardly ever buy cards. They are so fun to make...much easier than scrapbook pages. You should give it a try.

    edited to add some of the recent cards I've done. These are so so so simple it's actually embarrassing to post them, but I just wanted to give you an idea of some REALLY easy ones to do. All my pretty cards are given away. I usually don't make them unless I have a specific birthday or something.




    I use my leftover scraps from the pages I do to make my cards. Both of those say "merci" instead of "thank you" because I've ran out of popular letters like "t".

    Yes I make my own cards, I enjoy it plus it uses up my scraps. I get ideas from other people's cards but mainly just come up with how I want it to look.

    Charys - those cards are fabulous!! So creative!
    I would love to make cards but I don't for the same reason I have never paper scrap'd. The materials are soooo expensive here.
    But I love the idea. Much more personal than a store bought card.

    here are some of the cards I've made:





    and I lined the envelope with matching paper






    and I made the envelope for card above all by myself. (it was the first time ever)

    I do, but not very often. I think that's because I don't have enough embellishments (mainly letters and stamps) to fit a lot of occasions. I think it's super easy if you already scrapbook!
