Card Making is by far the UK's favourite type of project amongst papercrafters – it's such an important part of our culture to express our thoughts and sentiment to those we care about! We make cards for literally any occasion we can think of; whether it's for our partner on Valentine's Day, congratulating a colleague on their promotion, or for our favourite holiday of all: Christmas. If you've never made a card before but want to try your hand at this rewarding pastime, then you've come to the right place!
One of the biggest benefits of making your own cards is how inexpensive it is, especially when compared to prices of ready-made cards in shops on the high street. Card Making is not only a cheaper option, but a far more thoughtful one. After all, one of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that someone spent their time and energy hand-making and personalising something especially for you. One of the most versatile crafts, there is an incredible amount of techniques, tools and materials you can use to produce your very own one-of-a-kind creations. Here, we hope to delve into the basics of Card Making to show you the variety of routes you could take.
So, you want to make a variety of cards for a variety of your favourite people – but you have no valid excuse to do so? Well we've scoured the internet to find some of the best occasions you could send out a special card for. Whether you're looking for national holidays, religious dates, anniversaries or everyday occasions, we've got it covered!
