How to make fantastically unique birthday cards

Start with this inspiration...

Start with this inspiration...

Start by finding an image off the net that makes you think about that special someone. Print the image onto the lower left corner of a piece of cardstock, don’t forget to add a caption on the right. I used “the magic is what you dream outside the picture”, but you can try “beyond the borders”, “outside the box” or your own variation. Fold and cut the card, then begin to extend the picture with pencil crayons. Let your creativity run wild as you get further away from the photo. Have fun!

    I hear ya!
    I spent waaay too long stuck in that very same conundrum for my new “How To…” category name. So I, um, (and as a writer I’m not proud of this) gave up and went with ol’ faithful –> … the ol’ triple dot lol (“suspension point” to be more precise ; )

    Hey. I miss you, lady.
