No Bake Polymer Cards
These No Bake Polymer Cards from Ann Butler are a fun twist on a favorite way of sending a greeting. Mailing a paper card to a loved one is a lovely gesture, but you can easily kick the creativity up a notch by making a beautiful card out of clay. Unlike other polymer clay crafts, no oven is necessary to make this stunning project the next time a special occasion rolls around. Use stamps to customize the cards for any celebration, let dry, and share the brilliance.

Leaing the wrapping on the clay, cut about 1/3 to 1/2 from clay blocks in the colors of your choice. I like to use 3 - 5 colors. Place remaining clay into ziplock plastic bag to prevent drying.
Unwrap clay and arrange in order of choice. Press together into log shape and roll.
Fold clay and continue rolling to blend clay together.
Continue folding and rolling until clay is very thin. Let the clay dry overnight, turning as needed. If it begins to curl, place a book on it to flatten it out.
The clay will shrink somewhat, so only cut after it is dry.
Measure out your postcard and cut clay. Stamp as desired.
