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 Easy Rubber Stamp Repeat Cards Tutorial.

Learn to make cards using repeated impressions of small rubber stamps arranged in threes or fours and matted. Once you learn this design concept it can be used for repeats of any small object: paper punches, stickers, cutouts from decorative paper, stencils, and more.

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.
