Fun & Cute

What makes a fun and cute card? To begin with—a happy color scheme, a sweet sentiment, and an uncomplicated design. Throw in some whimsy (like cartoons and doodles), a few simple shapes (like hearts and stars), some friendly patterns (like polka dots and gingham)—and voila! There’s a smile on your face and a song in your heart that’s unmistakably fun and cute.

Editor: Susan Hart

DESIGNER TIP

When stitching by hand, pierce holes first with a paper piercer to ensure even stitches. It also prevents sore fingertips from pushing the needle through the paper, especially when it’s going through several layers.

Clean & Graphic

All Occasion * The clean and graphic style is characterized by the utilization of white space, clean lines, and simple treatment of text. It is no-frills, bare-boned, modern, and hip. And while you might be surprised at how minimally these cards are embellished, you might also be amazed at how quickly their messages are communicated.

Classy & Elegant

All Occasion *

Classy & Elegant is a style that is polished. A shiny finish, sparkling embellishments, a rich color scheme, and sophisticated sentiment treatments are all part of the classy and elegant pedigree. Its look is regal, stunning, and dashing. And while its lines are clean, sweeping, and dramatic, it can also incorporate monochromatic color schemes with layered textures that awe and impress equally as well.

Editors: Becky Baggett & Nicole Thomas

A sewing store or the button aisle at your local craft store is a great place to find unique and inexpensive buttons

Shabby Chic & Vintage

Shabby chic is a style characterized by layering. It is soft, utilizing ribbon, lace, and techniques such as inking and distressing. The final product looks comfortable, weathered, and worn. Vintage goes a step further by adding old images, found items, and antique trinkets to the mix.

Editors: Shelisa Loertscher & Beth Opel

DESIGNER TIP

To tone down brightly colored papers and give them more of a shabby feel, apply cream or white paint to the edges or all over for a faded whitewash effect.
