For all the people who are looking for making a beautiful personalized greeting card then you are at the right place. Here is a step by step tutorial to make for your loved ones.
Greeting cards are the expression of love, friendship, or gratitude. That is the reason why I love making greeting cards by myself. It is very simple, creative, and more importantly very personalized.
Here are the simple six steps to follow, for making a beautiful greeting card :
Step 1: Take a color chart/card of your choice.
Step 2: Fold the sheet it into half vertically and also 1″ or 2″ from the edges for pockets, as shown with the marked lines.
Step 3: Next fold the pockets completely and stick at the corners of the pockets.
Step 4: Now start folding the sheet horizontally with equal measurements. Let’s say at 3″, 6″ and 9″.
Step 5: Cut from one end up, leaving top 3″.
Step 6: Accordingly fold each side as shown and then make sure the pockets are on the outside, fold over and stick the parts A1 and A2 together back to back.
Your card is nearly complete now, but you will see the back (where I’m holding it) is open, so you need to fix it by using stitch-binding or sticking it.
MY GREETING CARD
Here I’ve used a simple white card and after finishing card making, I attached different black colored-pattern paper on different sides. You can also use a single colored card as well.
On the very first page, I designed it with a key-shaped red color paper. When you flip through the next page I made a small camera with card and kept it in the pocket symbolizing your favorite photos (photos can be kept in the pocket). If you observe, it also has bookmarking inside the sides of the pages, where you can keep mini letters (or) photos [extra add-on]. And on the last page, I made a cute little pocket letter.
This mini greeting card can be completely personalized by you. Filled with your feelings and emotions, which is perfect to gift to your loved ones.
