The art of scrapbooking is the practice of combining things such as photos, quotes, and memorabilia, and creating a beautiful and sentimental work of art that you can keep and treasure for your entire life. It has been around basically for as long as there have been photos, however scrapbooking itself has evolved quite a bit over the years, and is now incredibly new and different than it ever was before.
Scrapbook card making is an essential part to the scrapbooking art in itself, and although you can basically create whatever you want, knowing a few of the basics to scrapbook card making is always a good idea.
Scrapbook card making can be more than just fun and entertainment, as it also allows you to express yourself by adding that personal touch to cards for your friends and family members. You can create a scrapbooking card for basically any occasion: birthday, Halloween, Christmas, New Years, anniversaries, graduations, new baby, and the list goes on.
There are many accessories available for your scrapbooking card making projects which include such items as: stickers, ribbons, bows, craft cord flowers, confetti shapes, paper punches, embossers, eyelets, puff paints, card toppers, chenille, racquets, pom poms, pearl sprays, polystyrene shapes, sequins, and beads – to name a few of the many.
There is a wide variety of available tools and templates for your card making needs, and you can opt to use either these ideas, or come up with your own, or perhaps even do a little of both. You can even access card galleries either through magazines or on the Internet for the most part, where you can browse through others’ card ideas and get the basics needed for starting your own. There are plenty of places you can turn, including books, newspapers, pamphlets, and of course the Internet.
