In the digital age, greeting cards and thank you notes are fading fast in favor of phone calls and emails. When you absolutely have to make a greeting card, it’s often easier to find one with a cheesy or cute message from the local store rather than having to make one yourself.
But making a custom greeting card, especially for the right person is extremely nice, and can really warm someone’s heart. So instead of simply scribbling a personal message into the margins of that store-bought card, try instead to create your own card and take the time to show someone you really care for them.
Cards can be custom created with online programs, where you can pick from a variety of templates and pictures before altering the text and words yourself. The best part about giving your time to create a custom card is that you know all about what the person wants and likes. So, making that card for your family member, significant other, or best friend really allows you to show that you know them.
If they like colors, splash some color in there. Use a favorite quote or message, insert an old family photo or picture of a pet, and above all write the message from the heart. There’s nothing more heartfelt than opening a card and seeing a message just for you from someone special. That’s what makes the custom card so special.
The online programs will either let you print your card or it will be mailed to you, and then you just address an envelope to the recipient and let the snail mail do its work. Once that is done, chances are you’ll not only have made someone else happy but also might even be happy that your hard work was so loved by someone else.
