Whether the occasion is a birthday, a wedding, or an anniversary, it is always nice to give the celebrant a special message on a greeting card. Buying ready-made cards is okay, but if you want to make the person feel special on their special day, put in extra effort! You should make it a point that the celebrants would feel how much you care about them and their special day. And the best way to put smiles on their faces is to make handmade greeting cards! It is always nice to add a personal touch to your greeting cards. This would show how much you effort exerted to make a special day even more special. Also, it makes the gesture more unique and original. Who knows, you might be giving the same ready-made greeting card as everyone else? If you want a special card that would stand out and be different, making them with your own hands is the right way to go. If you are having a hard time looking for ideas for making handmade greeting cards, you have come to the right place!
When one says handmade, I first think of doodles. Making your own drawings or doodles would be a nice touch on your greeting card. But then, if you feel you are not good in drawing, you could always try finger painting. It does not require any art skills; you just have to make the card look colorful! If youre a creative type of person, you could always try doing pop-up greeting cards. You could also try putting in other accessories to make the card decorative. You could try putting buttons or strings. You may also want to put in glitter to make the card look sparkly. Try putting in little thingamabobs and putting in loads of color! You may also want to try adding a recordable sound module to the card.
Another idea is creating a theme for your greeting card. For example, you may want your greeting card to have a nature theme. You could always color it green, or add leaves and twigs on the borders. Another idea of a theme is an oceanic theme. You could try putting in seashells for the borders or try pasting sand all around. A blue background would work well with this type of theme. One more theme you may want to try out is a night sky theme. I have always thought that this is a nice theme to work with. You could try making the background black and putting in glitters as the stars. You could also try designing it with correction fluid. Try putting in swirls with the correction fluid as the borders of the greeting card. Use your imagination; there are a lot of themes you can try from nature to outer space! You really cant run out of ideas for making handmade greeting cards.
If you want a more personal look, you could always try putting your own photographs with the celebrant if you have one. This would add a nice personal touch since you have each others pictures on the card. It would definitely be different from the rest! Try putting in the little thingamabobs or adding a theme, too. To make it more special, why dont you try putting in things the celebrant likes? For example, if he or she likes dogs, try putting in pictures of dogs and puppies, or you could always draw your own. These are just some of the ideas for making handmade greeting cards though. Dont limit yourself for the sky is the limit! Be creative and try out new ideas. Just remember, a good greeting card comes from the heart and not from the store.
