Hello postcrossers! I’m just curious what do you make handmade cards out of?
When I first started handmade cards, I had gotten a pack of blank postcards and matching envelopes. To paint them, I had to tape down the edges so they wouldn’t curl up or move around while I painted. So anyone who has received my cards has probably noticed I cut the edges off.
Now I make postcards with old boxes. Cereal boxes are usually the ones I end up using. To make them, I roughly cut out a rectangle (the average cereal box makes 4 postcards). Then I use a paper cutter to refine it. I don’t do exact measurements so they aren’t all the same size. They are even though. Then I sand the design off so I can write on one side and paint on the other. After that I paint with acrylics. Then I seal it with modpodge. How do you make handmade cards? And out of what?
