Beginner's Guide to Cardmaking

Get to grips with this popular craft using a few tips and tricks


If you're wondering where to start on your cardmaking quest, the most important question should be whether you have the essentials. A metal ruler, craft knife, scissors, paper trimmer, cutting mat, scoring board, adhesive and card stock should do the trick.


If you're stuck for inspiration, look no further than Pinterest or crafting blogs. Alternatively, you can purchase cardmaking magazines to read up on all the latest card designs that are circulating.


Invest in a corner rounder punch. Instead of sticking to a square design, the puncher will enable you to add more interest to your card creations.


Use foam tape to add dimension to your makes. This tool will add depth to create beautiful pop ups your loved ones will appreciate.


Use a black marker to add a border around die-cuts to ensure that your makes stand out.


For tiny embellishments, invest in tweezers to help hold them in place. It's like having an extra pair of hands!


Cover mistakes with embellishments or add another image on top of your card for a professional finish.
