Card Making is the popular artistic and imaginative hobby of making uniquely designed and personalised greeting cards. Cards can be embellished using many different materials and incorporating several different crafts and skills.

Over recent years there has been an increasing number of people looking for greeting cards that were differentiated from the standard offering. This has led to a massive revival in the hobby of making greetings cards.

Card making is a hobby normally undertaken at home, it is non competitive, and requires no set dedication.

Greetings cards can be created by all ages from the youngest of children, aided by a parent, to adults who produce spectacular works of art.

Card making can be very simple, or it can be very intricate. Card making can also become a hobby incorporating several different allied arts and crafts.

Card making can be separated into four quite separate stages;
1) The general card design and format.
2) The decoration or embellishment.
3) The message.
4) The style of writting.

The outline shape of the card can be varied as can the number of leaves, the decoration can be direct, mechanical or an added embellishment. The message can be a statement or in the form of a poem and the style of writing can be printed or hand written.

The main events celebrated by the sending of a card in the UK are;
Valentines day,
Congratulations (of an achievement).

A hobby enjoyed by the participants, much appreciated by the recipient.
