As the days get shorter, there is no better time to get inspired for the prime card-giving season. In addition to our typical array of quick, easy, under-ten-minute stamping projects and colorful card ideas, we will have a designated holiday section — including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Season’s Greetings, and more — that offer tips to make cards that take less time than grabbing your car keys and driving to the bargain mart. Find tips to stamp on kraft cardstock, how to create alluring gift tags, learn how to apply an ethereal inking effect, and more! Several original articles include card themes ranging from chic and sophisticated to quirky critters designed from leftover patterned paper. This year forget about costly gifts, and give a personal and beautiful, handcrafted sentiment straight from the heart.
