Greetings cards are huge business in the UK. A 2015 report from the GCA (Greetings Cards Association) valued the UK market at £1.6 billion. And cards can cost anything from a few pence to several pounds. But you don’t need to break the bank, you can join the increasing number of people who make their own cards. According to Crafts Beautiful, the top consumer craft magazine, greeting card making in the UK is the number one craft hobby. So, why not give it a go: it’s fun and easy!
Instead of giving out a shop-bought card on the next special occasion among family or friends, try your hand at making your own.
Making your own cards does not require hours of time, and hard work, it just needs a bit of creativity, the right materials and a sense of fun. You can even get the family, and kids involved.
