DIY Design Ideas

If you’re not always in tune with your artistic side, it can be pretty easy to run out of design ideas quickly. So here are a couple of DIY ideas you can save for a rainy day to let your creativity out to play.

  • Paper filigree (a.k.a. quilling) is one great idea. Take out strips of paper, roll and glue them together to form decorative pieces to make your cards look surreal.
  • With watercolor, you don’t exactly have to paint a landscape in detail. You can make abstract patterns or gradient backgrounds.
  • Create stencil cutouts of your favorite characters or designs. You can set your plain cutout against a printed background or vice versa, to create a vivid image.
  • You can express yourself with cards in origami. It may take some practice, but the outcome is always worth it.
  • Your thank you card designs can be explosive if you turn them into pop-up cards.

You can look for more DIY ideas for your card designs. Always be up for trying new things to surprise your friends or business colleagues. Your handmade card designs are extensions of who you are and how you present yourself to the world.
