Card Making Made Easy

Easy Homemade Card

A couple of weeks ago I received a package in the mail that made my day!  I received a box full of David Tutera Paper Crafts which are Coming Soon to JoAnn's.  The best part is that I got to try it out before it was even available.   

Card Making Made Easy

What I love most about the products is that you can make layered and embellished cards in a fraction of the time, and they are absolutely beautiful.  They are as easy as 1-2-3!

Pick a Card and Envelope Combo
Step 2 - Add Layers to Your Cards. Sand It if Needed.
Embellish the Card and Envelope

Because I was so impressed with the ease and beauty of the line, I made a little video to show you just how quick and easy it truly can be to show your love with a handmade card.

Although these supplies were designed for cards, you will find they are a great addition to many projects.  Just to show you the versatility, I created a scrapbooking type page to insert in my school notebook.  As I sit in my journalism classes, my little creation keeps me inspired and motivated.

A plain notebook gets a new look with card making supplies.

I started with a simple notebook and scrapbook paper.  Then, I added one of the pink cards (opened), layered the Step 2 silver cutout layer which I love, and embellished with a "Make a Wish" tag, flowers, a jewel and a few journalism related stickers.  I love how just sliding it all inside the clear cover of my binder added such style to my notebook.
