Making your own stationary is THE BEST way to share your creativity with all your favorite peeps. And while you certainly can dive into the world of card making with nothing more than a pair of scissors, some construction paper and a bottle of white school glue, having a few more specialized tools and materials on hand will make the whole process a whole lot more fun.
Paper crafts are always a blast to do, but heat embossing adds a magic touch. This technique lets you add textured elements to your card stock or paper, using stamps, ink and special powders. (It's all about the melt!) You won't need too many supplies to get started, and the results are gorgeous. Get ready to see just what you can do.
We're way into the new craze called quilling. "Craze" is an unlikely word to describe a craft that dates back to the Renaissance, but whatever — it's trending.
You're getting ready to leave for a birthday party and suddenly realize, d'oh! You still need a card! You've got two options: You can run to the store and grab the first non-terrible card you see, or you can grab some paper and produce one yourself.
Quilling is all about paper, so it's weird that we don't get more excited about picking just the right type of paper. It's so easy to get caught up in planning our quilling projects that the paper practically has to scream, "Yoohoo, what about meeee?"
Embroidery + paper = one of the coolest cards we've seen. Seriously, look how beautiful this is! And it's actually pretty simple to make, even if you haven't tried embroidery before.
