Blank cards are just like a blank canvas ready for your creative ideas and inspirations. However, the difference is that with a card often you have a specific person in mind that you are making the card for. I do not make my cards until there is a specific occasion or person to give them to. It allows me to personalize my cards for each individual person and specific moment in time.
I used floral stickers, chipboard, cardstock, and gems. The wonderful thing about this card is that I had absolutely no idea of what I was going to create or how. I started with the flower sticker. I then added some leaves just as an extra accent. However, once I saw the leaves I realized I needed a flower in the center of them. I added a chipboard flower and then the gem inside of it. I attached some cardstock along the side and then added the gems along side of it.
Blank cards are a wonderful way to express yourself creatively and show your friends and family you care. Each card is different, it doesn’t require you to have a lot of supplies on hand, and is not very time consuming. If you are unsure about scrapbooking and paper crafting I would strongly recommend starting with cards and going from there. Sometimes an entire scrapbooked album can feel very overwhelming but one thank you card at a time is a great relaxing craft.
