Making note cards is one of the ways that I enjoy being creative. I used to spend hours in card stores searching for the perfect note card to send. Either the saying wasn’t quite right or the picture on the card wasn’t quite right. I finally realized that the only way I would find exactly what I wanted was to begin making note cards myself. While I enjoy making note cards a variety of different ways, my favorite is rubber stamping. I have a big plastic tub filled with rubber stamps so I always have a selection to choose from. Most of my rubber stamps I found at an online stamps store.
Making Note Cards
- The note card itself. You can purchase blank note cards along with matching envelopes to use as your base. Or if you would rather, you can begin with card stock and fold your own note card base.
- Rubber Stamps. I generally start with mounted rubber stamps because they are the easiest for me to use. However, you can purchase unmounted stamps or even make your own stamps.
- Ink. You can purchase ink pads in every color of the rainbow. It is also possible to stamp with vegetable juice or fruit juice if you want to keep it natural.
- Embellishments. You can add so many different embellishments or extras to your note cards that it is impossible to mention all of them. I usually add a brad to hold a movable top layer. It is also possible to create a teabag folded flower to your card. You can also simply stamp a design on the front of your card. Some people like to color in the rubber stamp design to give it more depth.
Making note cards can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be. I have seen some note cards that must have taken hours to create. While they are beautiful to look at, I don’t have that much patience. My note cards tend to be fairly simple but I enjoy creating them. When I give them to friends and family, they know that the note cards were made just for them. Have you ever tried making note cards or do you purchase them from the store instead?
