Hi, I’m Holly Silva, and I’m a craft expert for about 15 years now. Today, we are going to work on blank greeting cards. Let’s get started. Now, with a blank greeting card, I chose a nice little purple for construction paper, because purple is the color of friendship and kindness and compassion. Actually, I think that’s yellow, but purple will do just fine. So, because this is blank, we’re going to do something very simple on the outside. I like to just make my greetings straight and to the point, so what we’re going to do on this particular card is this: “Hello!” Who wouldn’t want to get a card like that in the mail, or on their front doorstep? I know I would, because simple is the most thoughtful, because these days it takes a lot of effort just to say hello, and we like that. And then inside, keep it blank if you want, or say something, or draw a picture. I’m going to draw a nice little picture for you. I’m going to say this girl, “Hi,” with both arms, and she’s going to have hair, and a big smile. Look at me, I’m smiling and waving, hey! And, I have cool little shoes on! And, that was a blank greeting card with a picture in it. Well, there it was. As you can see, blank greeting cards can start out from just a blank piece of paper and continue to be anything else that you make of it. It’s your imagination, and it’s your piece of paper. Do as you choose and enjoy it. Just have fun. You have any questions on this craft or anything else, let us know and we’d be happy to help you out. See you next time.
