I'm not sure I can offer any words of wisdom but here's my piece anyway...

I make cards the "lazy way". I bought a pack of blank white prescored cards and I just cover the front page with paper (usually from kaiser's 6" paper pads) and then embellish with coordinating products!

There are heaps of places of inspiration out there though, and loads of card sketches out there to get you started.

Good luck :) I made my first lot of cards for Christmas and really enjoyed it! Now I'm jumping at the chance to make a card for any event thinkable!

Hi there....my only suggestion would be to Google images for card making. Debs Creations has some links to some amazing card making blogs, very inspirational browsing through them! Dunno if that will help but worth a shot!

My card advice would be to pull out that box of scrap PP paper/cardstock and go from there. I normally find when card making using up scraps of PP and ribbons and things not only makes noice cards but I feel great seeing that box of scraps go dooown slowly.
