There are a ton of websites full of card making ideas and techniques. This is just a few of the ones I use the most.
I love to make cards. It is relaxing, and fun. You don't have to be a great artist to end up with a great looking card. And the best things is you can then share what you created with others by just sending a card. I have been making my own cards for over 8 years now. I got introduced to this hobby by one of my best friends. She taught me how to stamp and color simple cards, and I have been learning new techniques ever since. Two of my friends and I get together almost every Wednesday night and work on our projects. We learn from each other, try out new techniques together and just have a lot of fun creating cards to send to family and friends.
This shows you where I work on my cards at home. You don't need much space. Just a little storage space and a table to work on.
To get started you will need just a few basic tools and materials, and soon you'll be creating cards for every occasion; along with other card items such as gift tags, party invitations, notecards, place settings and wedding stationery.These website really lay out some of the basic supplies you will need to get started.
