Creating a card template for your handmade greeting card can be as simple as tracing the form of an old greeting card, but there are other creative ways to make a template that can be mass produced for party invitations and special events. By using simple materials, you can successfully design card templates for any project.
Things You'll Need
- 1 sheet of card stock, 8.5 by 11 inches
- Computer printer
- Pair of scissors
- Paper cutter (optional)
As you mass produce party invitations, you will need a sturdy base. Place a clean sheet of heavy, sturdy card stock—the heavier the weight, the better—on your work space.
Print a card template from online and cut it out. See the Resources section for a few options, including heart-, fan- or hat-shaped cards.
Trace the template on your card stock or the outline of an old greeting card with a pencil. Also, consider folding the card stock in half and using a paper cutter or scissors to trim about two inches off the top or sides to make a smaller card template.
Cut out the template and use it to retrace on other sheets of card stock to mass produce invitations.
