Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas

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!).

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

    She did do a great job and of course you know where to send her!
