Card Making Ideas

Home PhotoCrafts   Card Making Ideas   

On several instances we are given an chance to do this, for instance on someone’s birthday, anniversary, graduations or otherwise, to show this gratitude by doing some simple feets that send a powerful message of love and gratefulness maybe by giving a card, a speech or other tokens or gifts. Generally we find it more convenient to buy such things, however, sometimes creating them ourselves is seen as more effective in delivering a message, when our creative effort goes out in making something meaningful. In this way a token will have more significance than if it was purchased. Homemade cards are also exciting and simple to make, and can be achieved by simply implementing some basic steps.

Initially you will need all the correct tools and materials for making a card. This may consist of; cartridge paper, glue, markers, printing paper, paper cutters and paper punch tools. Mome of these items can be accessed from home and if not can be purchased in a store. There are various techniques of card making; embroidery, paper folding, paper piercing, stamping and pieced paper imagery are all utilized in card making. Decorations can be adhered to the exterior of the card to make your card more attractive and fun. You can utilize a digital camera, to take pictures and print it on a piece of paper. If you have hard copy of other pictures you would like to use, you can employ the color copier, to copy them and reproduce it on printing paper so it can be paste onto the cover of the card. Pictures gives off a personalized look to a card whether the photograph is of the person you are presenting it to or of an occasion that will educe fond moments. The best way to affix a photograph is by employing a spray mount.

You can use a PC, to create graphically modified cards to print out graphics, borders and text. For a more hands on approach, you can carve out words and pictures from books and paste them onto the card to inscribe various expressions to give your best wishes. If you want to add extra flare to your card, you can use glitter to add a special feel. The best kind of glitter to use is those combined with glue that comes in a squeeze bottle to design whatever you want.
We can also implement some simple but effective outlines and shapes to apply a nice finishing touch with any design that gives the card with a professional look. Just shape out a length of paper the length for whichever side of the card you need to apply it and glue it on. You can also use stencil shapes or designs bought from an art supply and apply it to the surface of the card with magic markers using the stencil design.

Apart from card making, we can find other creative ways for saying thank you. This can be achieved in a public setting, where you can openly express your gratitude in front of guests and supporters; this will make the person feel very loved and appreciative. A phone call can now and again feel a bit impersonal but is still a very convenient means of saying thanks, especially when the people you want to tell are very far away in a different country so calling someone to orally thank them can still be a very good method to convey your gratitude. You can also use your phone to send text messages.

Use intermediate means like the internet to send emails, instant messages or e-cards along with music and photographs of friends and loved ones with a note of thanks. You can also arrange a dinner or a surprise party with food, friends and family as a way of devoting an event to someone special, this is an excellent way to show thanks. You can also make a home video using your very own digital camera including you and your friends all saying thanks. This can be sent either from a cd or via emails. Writing a thank you letter may be traditional but it can still have a very huge impact on the receiver.
