Greeting card tutorials are a regular feature on Aunt Annie's Crafts. Each tutorial builds on prior card projects. It's like taking a class on making handmade greeting cards.

This month's featured card tutorial is  Matted Clip-art and Photo Cards. This tutorial is all about combining colors. You'll learn how to select a mat color that suits the clip-art or photo that you've chosen as the central theme of your greeting card..

If you are new to card making, the tutorials in the Card Class are a great place to learn many techniques for making beautiful cards. Then for more ideas and techniques, go on to Card Class 2.
