My first card! You guys are creating a monster! LOL

So I made my nephew a card for his birthday today. Normally I use Microsoft Publisher to make cards and print them off on my computer, but decided to give this a try. I LOVED doing it, and although it's not great, it's pretty good for a rookie. Smile He's only five, so he won't really care anyway. Smile I left the inside blank except for my writing. Is that what you guys do? TFL and getting me inspired to do this. I might just have to do this more often.

BTW, I used card stock for this and cut it bigger cause I just put it in the box with his presents I'm mailing. Can you use just regular patterned paper for this too or is card stock preferred? Thanks again!

nice job!!!

You can use whatever you want for cards!! I like cardstock because it is thicker...but you can use regular paper glued to cardstock, so you get the look of the paper and the thickness of the cardstock!

bwahahahaha!!!! Blum 3

That's really great Carrie! I love the greeting. Did you sand the edges? And like Liz said, the good thing about cards is you can use whatever you have on hand. I use cardstock most of the time, but you can use up your scraps on the front too. I think I like making cards even more than scrapbooking. :eek:

I can see how this can be addicting! Smile

Nice job on your first card.

I agree with all the ladies when I say that you can make cards out of whatever you have around. That is what is so great about them.
