Welcome to the second day of the Card Making Made Easy Workshop!
First of all, if you haven’t watch video from Day 1, please stop and go to that first video. Click here or on the picture below to go watch video #1
I hope you’ve done the homework from this first video. Because the more you do this exercise the easier it will be for you to find your uniqueness in card making.
And finding your Uniqueness will help you come up with your own card ideas in an easier way.
So don’t dismiss this important step. I know it sounds so easy, but this is how I discovered what I my own style.
And if you think about it, knowing what your style is, will definitely help you to come up with cards in an easy way. Why, you might ask? Well because then your will know where to start..
Believe me.. When I started to pay attention to what I was loving from the cards I used as inspiration, I realized that the layout was my thing.. But that might not be your thing…
We all are different crafters, you might love colors, or fancy techniques, or elaborated cards, or vintage cars, or clean and simple.. And once you define your style, then you can see where to start.
For me, as I mentioned, it is the layout. So guess what I look for when I start making cards? Layouts or Sketches!… you guessed it right!

So in this second video from the Card Making Made Easy Workshop, we will explore how we use the inspiration we like to incorporate it into our cards. You will see in my case how I can get many card ideas going from layouts.
Make sure you download the resources from this video below.
I hope you enjoyed this second video. Hopefully by now you realize how using the things you liked from the inspiration can help you in designing your own cards. This process will help you find your Uniqueness, which will help you to come up with cards even easier.
Tomorrow we will see how to use one piece of inspiration to come up with as many card ideas as we can.. You will see how once you have found your own style you can use one piece of inspiration to make so many cards with ease and confidence..
I know you will enjoy it..
