Just like in wedding cards, there are lots of different methods of creating card. Some are formal or informal, traditional or non-traditional, and many more types that can be done according to our decision and what we like.

The beauty of personalized wedding cards is that every friend, relative and family or whoever that will receive the card will immediately know that the card came from you. Your personal touch will be there, so they knew just by looking at it that it was your card. A great idea on how to make it really look more personal is by the use of photos in the wedding cards either as a background or the main accent in the wedding cards. There will be a romantic feel when you see the photos of two lovely and sweet couple in front of the wedding cards. Actually, one of our goals in making cards is that it must inspire people and they should feel the love and care that the couple has for each other. One thing you must do and remember is to set an appointment with a photographer way before you plan for the wedding cards. You will spend most of your time deciding on what picture to choose and will be put to the card. Make sure that you pick the most romantic shot and you can also ask someone to add some effects or to edit the photo to make it more sweet and attractive.

The wedding cards must reflect the happiness of the couple and by using some pictures or photos we can surely send that message to other people.

Cardmaking using Cutouts

There are different types of design and style out there that are applied to cardmaking, such as rubber stamping, teabag folding, cross stitch, 3D Pop up cards and many more. Actually, there are no definite rules and limits in cardmaking. It depends upon your creativity and your supplies on how you are going to make your card. The final result of the card also lies on the materials you are going to use. The color, quality, and uniqueness depend on the materials and how you are going to develop those materials into something new or unique. Of course, the card may not be made out of fancy or expensive materials that are hard to find, especially if you are living in a town where cardmaking materials are not freely available just by going to the local market.

If finding the right materials for your cardmaking project is hard for you, because of the unavailability of sources in your area, then I fully suggest that we have to use our artistic talent in being resourceful. We have to make something fancy out of simple things, just like magic. Though, this time we don’t have to think of something crazy like appearing feathers out of nowhere or colored papers being mailed to us without actually ordering. No magic stuff like that, but what we have to do exactly, is to find magazines or old papers that can still be used for our cards. Pick the ones that are still in good condition and the quality of the paper is still there. By using our talent and creativity we can surely make these old magazines and newspapers into something artistic. We can cut a page which has a nice background or if you want, just grab a plain paper so you can do your designing freely. Using the letters in the magazines and newspapers, we can make the lettering out of it. We can also cut down some pictures or photos in the magazine and use it as a design to the card. Another great idea is to cut shapes from the magazines, these simple ways can actually make a brilliant card especially if it is just a hobby for children. If you are already experienced in the field of art, you can do complicated stuff like paper mache to make a more unique card. A person’s creativity can really make everything beautiful and fancy.

Online Shopping: From card making to clothes

Gone are the days when you have to send telegrams to people just to communicate with them. Let us also forget the times when we have to experience the bumpy carriage or the no mobile phone era. Technology has surpassed all the things we have expected. Everything seems easy nowadays due to the advancements and discoveries in this modern world. I thought the explosions of different infrastructures like malls or market places are already satisfying. But, I guess people will never be contented. While I browse online, what I see most of the time are sites selling different stuff. From jewelries to card making stuff, they all got them.

Online shopping is really addicting because you can see different selections of stuff just by sitting at the comforts of our houses. What we only need is a good connection and of course a computer. If we want to find gifts we can search card from the online shop of many card making gurus. Or if we are trying to find some clothes, we can see many selections, it doesn’t matter what size you are and what style you want, the internet always got it. It actually makes our life more convenient and keeps us free from the hassle and bustle of life outside. This is really good especially during holidays, because not only you can find cheap stuff from the internet but it also adds comfort to yourself. You don’t need to squeeze yourself to a large crowd or wait in a long line to pay for your packages in the counter. Another beauty of this is that almost all of online shops sell things that are unique and one-of-a-kind. You will not think about the danger of bumping to another person wearing the same shirt or dress you are currently wearing. The most appropriate example for this also are scrapbooks or cards because you will not expect the people who do card making or scrapbooking to produce the same stuff twice in exactly the same design and appearance. It will also lessen the risk for the price of your gifts being discovered.

It is a good thing that technology makes our lives so much easier. It offers a lot of benefits for us and it also helps a lot of people to earn money through this, from those who design clothes or do card making, technology really helps(a lot!).

There is Hope in Paper

Problems may suddenly arise and its complexity will depend on the knowledge we have and our preparedness to solve it. All problems can be solved if you have the basic necessities to fight it them. Actually, the battles and problems are the thrills in our life, these are what make us active and make life meaningful. During times when we encounter some odds in our life, it is our defence mechanism to think of something that can take us out of danger. Our ability to think and our defence came from the knowledge and wisdom we get from a simple paper. We may not notice the importance of reading now, but once an event or trouble comes up, we will be thankful that we were able to read and learn something about it.

Our civilization is the best example of people who understand the great importance of a material which they can use to write and record. Due to the abundance of this material now, we seldom notice its positive impact to our everyday life. If we were able to live during the times where there is no paper to be used in writing and be a source of reading, then we may understand the vitality of it. The knowledge of the people and the discoveries they learn will be put to waste if there is no material where they can transfer their thoughts. The people especially the youth must understand the importance of books in our life and what it can do to save us from the growing troubles that our world are now facing.

Books are now just being kept aside as the time of technology arises. Due to modernization, technology is now being used as an alternative to paper where they usually do writing and reading in the past. We may think that paper is now being replaced by technology but I totally disagree. Even though this material is just like a minion to technology, I may say that it still holds the power to spread and share the wisdom of people all around the globe. To our world that is now experiencing problems regarding economy, there are still some nations that are incapable of getting hold of technology and understanding its basic manipulation. That is why paper can instill hope to the people by serving as a guide to bring wisdom to their minds. It can act as a voice to the people through reading and it is where we start to learn our talent in writing or in art.

A simple
paper can bring happiness to our hearts. As a child, this material is where we learn how to write or draw. It acted as our weapon in exploring the world and our creativity. This material became the reason on why we got to experience a wide array of knowledge just like now and it is a basic necessity for the evolution of art and our own selves.
