Greeting card tutorials

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 Make Fall and Winter Cards with Quilling Motifs.

Build on the Basics of Quilling and the quilling design patterns in the project to decorate greeting cards with quilling motifs for fall and winter—snowflake, acorn, and pumpkin. The card ideas are based on the easy-to-make Four Patch Card, and use free digital papers you can download and print.

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.
