Approximate Time: 30 - 45 minutes plus drying time
Cut cardstock into rectangles. Note cards will require larger rectangles than gift cards. Fold the rectangles in half to turn them into cards.
Decorate the front of the cards with glue designs. The designs can be seasonal, holiday, or simply abstract, if you're not feeling too artistic. Allow the glue to dry.
When the glue dries, you will have a raised design. Paint over the entire front of the card, any color you choose. You will notice the raised glue design gives the card a 3-D effect.
Allow the paint to dry, and your cards are ready to use.
