First, take a piece of cardboard and fold it in the middle. Cover the front side with paper of the color you like best.

After that, stick the decals at your disposal with an ornament, maybe with glitter. This will give the card a chic and elegant look. The bright design is especially suitable for postcards dedicated to the New Year holidays. If you nevertheless decide to cover the postcard with fabric, then it will look unusual in itself. At your discretion, you can sew more buttons and ribbons.

Make small bows out of them, fasten them with white floral tape, and glue them on a postcard. To give the card shine and originality, you can put the inscription on top with small silver self-adhesive rhinestones. And decorate the middle of the bows with them. It will turn out very elegantly.
When the front part is completed, you can begin to design the middle of the postcard. Gently adhere a thick sheet of white paper, making sure no glue comes into contact with visible areas. You can use not only white, but other colors as well. The main thing is that they are light. Beige and pinkish shades are perfect. Write congratulations with helium pens with sparkles. You can write in block letters or use an ornate writing style. And glue small bows made of silk ribbons to the color of the text to match in the corners of the card.
If you know how to draw beautifully, then the flowers created by you will be doubly pleasant. In addition to ribbon bows, you can decorate the card with flowers made of corrugated multi-colored paper.
