    Hi Julie and welcome to the forum. I'm a cardmaker too and i've recently got into scrapbooking.

    There are lots of ways to make quick and tasteful cards, one of the easiest is to mat 2 or 3 pieces of paper, stick an embellishment on it then stick it to the card.

    You can get lots of inspiration from places like the forum, magazines, websites with gallery's etc, it's just a case of finding what style you like and adapting it to create your own cards.

    Sorry i haven't been much help.

      it is full of good ideas, my mum has bought me something from one of the shopping channels, i dont know what.

        Gald you managed to find the reply button - was just about to pm you till i noticed you'd sorted it. It takes a little while to find your way round here but you'll soon get the hang of it.

        If you are mailn'y using just peel-offs, using different backing papers can really change the look of a card especially if your layer a couple of pieces.

          Welcome Julie - I'm new too! I use the magazines a lot for inspiration and it sort of takes off from there! Give it a go! I'm sure you'll be fine.

            Welcome Julie, a lot of cardmakers start with peel offs ad punches, and from there move onto more advanced techniques as your confidence grows. there are plenty of lovely people here to give you hints and tips.

                    Welcome!

                    Hello Julie and to the forum!
                    I started card making when I was off ill from work for 5 months (long, boring story!!) many years ago now and it is a fantastic way to fill your time. I don't want to bombard you with lots of info about techniques etc on your first post so my advice at first is just have a go. It doesn't matter if your first cards are not the greatest..mine were pretty terrible! but you will improve and all the time you will be enjoying yourself!
                    I look forward to getting to know you. (oh by the way I am 38 but feel like I'm going on 68 this morning!!)

                        Welcome! I do a little bit of card making usually using my quilling that I do. I haven't made any new cards for a while as I have quite a stock waiting for me to send them off for birthdays! I hope you manage to get loads of ideas (by the way I'm 29... though by the evening I sometimes feel like I'm more like 89 and need a good sleep!).

                              Thanks for the greeting, i do intend to branch out, but there are so many things you can buy, its like aladdins cave, my partner ( mark ) cant belive all the stuff i have accumulated in such a short time.
