Ready to learn how to make a greeting card?! I’ve got 3 ways a versatile card layout can work for you! Take this layout and use what you have to create your own cards.

Card layouts provide an easy “map” to where the pieces can be placed on your card base. This makes creating your handmade card quick and easy.

I’ve included pictures of all three cards, along with their cutting dimensions and supplies below. Be sure to scroll all the way through today’s blog post so you don’t miss them.
