Combine more traditional paper crafting and handmade card ideas with the soft and trendy blending of watercolors to make one adorable card. This how to make a handmade card tutorial shows you how to make an everyday occasion card that is perfect to send your friends or family a simple hello. The Utterly Adorable Handmade Card uses Deco Foil products, but you could easily personalize the process with other options from your paper crafting stash.

In the Designer's Words: "I love to die cut, but sometimes I feel like my die cuts are, well, boring. I was stuck in a rut with them; every time I would cut some, they would be all one color or just cut from patterned paper… Nothing really out of the box or new! So, I gave the Therm O Web Adhesive Pen a try to decorate my die cut!"
