If you don't have an artistic bone in your body or have never created a greeting card before in your life, no problem creating green cards is actually a lot easier than you think and it can be done from home by following these simple steps.
Step 1 – Design
If you have a computer with Internet connection at home, you should use your computer to search for greeting card designs online. To find greeting card designs all you have to do is go to your favorite search engine and type in the keywords “greeting cards” or “greeting card designs”. Once you find a website that has a wide variety of greeting card designs, you can either print out those designs on your printer or you can copy those designs by sketching them out using a pencil and a simple sheet of paper.
Step 2- Materials
To make a great greeting card all you need are a few supplies including: scrap booking paper, colored construction paper, a glue stick, scissors, and glitter. Once you have your materials purchased, bring them home, set them on your table and begin the layout process.
When creating a greeting card, you should stick with the colors and designs, that you're spouse or significant other will love. Do they love red, purple, pink, yellow or green? If you choose colors that they love, this will show that you put some thought into the creation of the greeting card and, you will receive more love and affection for your efforts.
Step 3 – How to Lay Out Your Greeting Card
• Choose your piece of scrap booking paper and fold that paper in half so that it resembles the same shape and size of a traditional greeting card. • Once the paper is folded in half you can take your design idea and gently trace it out onto the piece of scrap booking paper then use construction paper or any other materials to cut out the shapes and designs for your greeting card image. • After your materials are cut out for your greeting card design, use the glue stick to glue those materials into place, sprinkle a little bit of glitter onto the greeting card, then wait for your image to dry. • After your greeting card image has dried, use a black ink pen to write out your greeting card message to your spouse or significant other.
