I love making cards, it always seems much more personal than going out and buying one, plus you can make it exactly as you want, you can be as creative, or keep it as simple as you like.

This pretty heart embossed card is perfect for papercraft beginners who are new to embossing, introducing you to the art of layering up card stock to create a three dimenisional card, with a little help from some very clever glue!
