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 V-Fold Pop-Up Birthday Card Tutorial.

Make a birthday card that features the child's (or adult's) age as a pop-up. There's something almost magical about pop-ups that delights both children and adults. After you make this card, you will be able to add a similar V-fold pop-up to any 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.
