There are several ways to make greeting cards. You can use Publisher which is a part of the office package. They have all different kinds of templates in the software to make your greeting cards.

They sell different greeting card programs that are for your computer. You could try using one of these. You can purchase your card stock at most office supply stores.

Other than this you will need to go to a craft store and buy your supplies. You can find your paper, glue, glitter and anything else you would like to use to make your greeting cards.

What kind of greeting card do you want to make? You can reuse anything you have at home. You can make a card from a brown paper bag with some twine, or ribbon.

I would get super minimal greeting cards in bulk then embellish them with bits and bobs from the craft shop! Sounds like fun-- wishing you luck!

I start with sheets of cardstock, purchased by the package when on sale, or sometimes at a thrift store or garage sale. Cut each sheet in half, then fold that piece in half. You can make these other sizes but be sure they fit in an envelope. I take used greeting cards and cut out something from the front of the card. If the design is intricate, I cut a square, a rectangle, a circle, or an oval, centering the design.

Sometimes I just fussy cut around the design. These are glued to the front of the card and embellishments added (glitter, buttons, sticky back rhinestones, etc.) Watch for these items when on sale or at a thrift store. The greeting can be added with a rubber stamp and ink pad, hand written, or a message cut from a used greeting card.
