If you love the happy atmosphere during special occasions like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, birthdays and graduations, then you would know how greeting cards play a huge role in these important days. Greeting cards represent a lot of emotions like happiness and love.

Of course, greeting cards play a huge role in the special occasions scattered through our lives. It is not uncommon for us to receive a birthday card, a Valentine’s card, a congratulatory card or even a good luck card. Now, if you are one of those people who simply love to receive cards, then it is high time to turn the table around. Why not start giving out really great cards to those people who matter to you? And the best thing about this plan is that you can make card-giving extra special for those people --- by creating handmade cards or personalised cards.

Hesitant to try out your luck in card making? Here are the best reasons why you should try it out…

1. Cardmaking is fun and easy.
One of the best reasons why you should make your own cards is because it is easy and fun. Card making can make idle hands work and be creative. Imagine yourself enjoying conceptualizing of card themes, thinking of concepts, creating personalized messages and adding color and spice to each card you make. Making cards at home can be a family activity as well. It can certainly be exciting to gather round the entire family (adults, teens and kids alike) to go shopping for card making supplies and set the weekend for a fun card creation activity.

2. Cardmaking allows you to express your creativity.
If you have always wanted to put a part of you in a work of art, then card making can be one way to do so. Making personalized cards allow you to harness your creative skills. This can easily be done as you try using various card making materials just to end up with the perfect card you have in mind for a special person.

3. There are a lot of tools that can make card making easier and more enjoyable.
Nowadays, making handmade cards is no longer that difficult as there are different tools that can be used. For example, there are decoupage card making materials that can easily be bought online. You can even have embosser machines or even stamp blocks to use for your card making activities.

4. Handmade cards show your sincerity.
Most people opt to receive greeting cards that have the personal touch. While store-bought cards still have their value, handmade cards automatically touches us deeply. When we receive cards that were handmade, we often feel very special.

5. There are tons of card making materials to use.
Since there are practically no rules in personalized card making, anyone can use all sorts of materials to create a unique greeting card. Many card making materials can be used including stickers, stamps, glitters, glitter pens, paint, stencils, stick-ons, ribbons, laces and even cut-outs.

6. Making your own cards can be a good alternative to store-bought cards.

If you simply do not have the patience to buy greeting cards from malls or bookstores, then making your own cards can be a good alternative to the usual cards which are bought from a store. Also, your own cards can prove to be a relief from the generic themes and ideas found on commercially-made cards.
