Does anyone else hate spending money on greeting cards? And how do you feel about getting a card with a heart-felt message from a Hallmark employee? Then you’re up for a simple way to make your own cards!
Years ago I spent $10 at Target for some blank, pastel postcards with matching envelopes. And when I had an occasion to include a card I would put a band of matching ribbon along the bottom of the card and write a little note. Easy as can be.
Recently I’ve had the need for something a little more – like a greeting card that actually opens up.
I first introduced DIY stamps in the post on making a custom t-shirt. To make custom, DIY greeting cards you use the same technique.
Start with pre-cut foam letters to make a reusable stamp. Remove the adhesive with Goo Gone because you have to glue the words in reverse on cardboard.
Then paint the letters and stamp down on your cardstock.
Join two pieces of cardstock postcards with Washi tape. Wrap the Washi tape around so it covers both sides of the fold.
On what occasions have you made your own card?
