Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas

CutAtHome no image

Published on June 17th, 2013 | by Stacy


Easy Beginner Cards

All of you out there who are new to card making, these beginner cards are just for you! If you think I’m lying, please know that my mother-in-law actually made these. She hasn’t scrapbooked in probably 20 years and has never used a die-cutting machine….ever. She had so much fun making these and is truly converted and it only took me about 20 minutes to convert her to die-cutting. Success!

For all of you beginners, this is what you need.

1. Die-cutting machine (click HERE to see all of the cool machines we carry)

2. Paper/cardstock

3. One or two dies

4. Embellishments (stamps, bling, etc.). You can literally use anything you want for this step! Anything.

My mother-in-law was so excited that this is all you need to get started. We made more than these two cards with just those 4 things and they all turned out different. You really don’t need a store’s supply of product to get started, just a few things (and you probably have most of those around your house!).

About the Author

I just came on the team as a designer in May 2012, so I get the fun part of working! Having my sweet and wonderful mother as the other designer is too much fun and we love bouncing ideas off of each other for card making and scrapbooking. I am also the other blogger showing you the fun new products! I love the customer's input on the blog and love to hear what is being made by all the readers.

    Way to go mother-in-law! She did an amazing job, especially for her first time die cutting! She really should keep it up. 😉
