01 Quick Easter Card Making Tips

Hello friends!  This is Linh or LV Handcrafted across the socials. Do you make cards to sell? Do you send a lot of cards to family and friends? Maybe you need to make a lot of cards for your kid’s classmates. There are times when you might need to make a lot of cards in a short amount of time. Today I’m sharing some quick & easy cardmaking tips.  

Here’s my strategy for fast & easy cardmaking:

  1. Print full sheets of pattern papers & images so you have a lot of options
  2. Use your cutting machine to cut out the images & sentiments quickly
  3. Use something like the EZ Wonder Die #1 to cut out some basic shapes. This is a single die that will cut out several basic shapes. I cut 3 different pattern papers using this die.  This gave me 25+ individual shapes – circles, squares, rectangles, and banners.

Now for the fun! Mix and match and start assembling your card layout!

If you prefer written instructions, follow the steps below:

STEP 1

Choose your digital papers, images
and sentiments and print them out.
I recommend 60 lb cover weight.

STEP 5

With leftover elements, decorate the
inside of your card too! Another option
is to decorate coordinating envelopes as well.
