So I have made no secret about the fact that I am paper-crafting challenged. It’s quite sad actually.
No sweet little scrapbooks around here. No handmade cards for family and friends.
Well – at least on the card front I have found a super easy way to give something cute and personal, without the finished result looking like a 3rd grader with both hands in casts made it.
It’s a shop I’ve recently found called Cardstore! Have you heard of it?
It’s my new favorite thing.
It’s an online card store (bet you picked up on that . . ) but it is a lot more! You can personalize so much – from photos to text. And they have all types of cards! Birthday, Anniversary, Announcements, Invitations, Thank You – pretty much anything you can think of!
What about Back to School? You could order a super cute card to celebrate your little one starting Kindergarten – personalized with their NAME! How cool would that be?!
They have lots of great styles – I fell in love with these Arrow Bridal Shower cards! Perfect for a couples shower and so stylish.
They have a whole line of cards designed by Kate Spain too. Just gorgeous. I really liked these Moving Announcements! The graphics are super sweet and you can add fun photos to personalize it!
I had to try the process out for myself of course. Just to see how hard or easy it was. We have a pretty big birthday coming up for my son. 18. Yikes. (sniff sniff)
So I went browsing in the birthday card section.
I really liked that you could sort your searches by lots of different ways. I looked for cards “for him” and “funny”. Because sweet cards are not for this kid. :)
I found a card that’s perfect for him! Yes. The mullet card is just ideal.
Loading your photos is super easy and with this card you can write a note inside, and add pictures inside too! I chose to do a little “walk down memory lane” photo gallery inside.
Oh my gosh those baby pictures. I just want to smoosh him.
Then all you have to do to finish the process is save and purchase! You can send the card straight to your person, or send a blank envelope to yourself so you can hand deliver it. So crazy easy. And it’s all personalized with my text and photos. Win win!!
I can’t wait to give him this card next month!!
I have a super special treat for Flamingo Toes readers from the nice folks at Cardstore too!!
