Happy Friday friends! Tomorrow is World Cardmaking Day and we’re celebrating today with a roundup of 5 Ideas for Handmade Cards. If you’re looking for card inspiration using our Punch Boards, Happy Jig, or other tools then you’re in the right place!
Make a Shaker Pocket with the Fuse Tool
Make Mini Cards and Matching Envelopes with the Mini Envelope Punch Board
Mini handmade cards are perfect for including with birthday, shower, holiday, or other gifts. Use journaling cards, die cuts, or tags and make matching mini envelopes with the Mini Envelope Punch Board.
Create a Set of Coordinating Handmade Cards
While you’ve got your papers and embellishments out on your workspace, make a few cards that coordinate and can be used either together as a gift set, or separately for future occasions. Use different techniques and tools, like the Banner Punch Board, Word Punch Board, and Square Punch Board. If you’re making a creative mess, you might as well get as much out of it as you can!
Layer Handmade Tags for Your Card Background
Layering DIY gift tags on the background of your card creates depth, texture, and visual interest. Make custom tags in no time with the Tag Punch Board. It’s a great way to use up your paper scraps too!

The 123 Punch Board is the most versatile of all Punch Boards! Check out this beautiful handmade card and envelope. Can you guess which elements were made with the 123 Punch Board? If you guessed the Bow, Banner, Envelope and Liner you are correct! It’s the ultimate tool for any crafter.
We hope these handmade card ideas have helped inspire your own cardmaking projects. Have a wonderful and creative World Cardmaking Day tomorrow, and come back and visit us next week for more craft tutorials.
