Finding Inspiration in Paper Crafts Magazine

By | 10/05/2013

Today I found my inspiration in Paper Crafts Magazine.  They released an edition about 75 creative card challenges!  Well Paper Crafts Magazine…challenge accepted!  I found it to be a very inspiring to browse through!  I stopped subscribing to magazines years ago because I never had time to read them and they just became clutter.  Now that my kids are in college, I actually have time to browse through magazines!

The actual challenge was to make your own background paper by stamping or punching.  I just really liked the card layout!  It’s simple and elegant.  You could honestly mass produce these cards if you chose this card layout for your Christmas cards.  You do want to choose your ribbons and embellishments with care.  These can add to the postage of your card.  Make one card and take it to the post office to see if it will need extra postage before you make all of your cards!
