    Well, that was the plan.

    My boyfriend's 21st birthday is in a few days, and I have him a gift, I'll be baking him a cake, and tonight I decided I'd make him a card too!
    I'm bored, and I figured it would be time consuming and sweet. [​IMG]

    I have lots of scrapbooking paper and supplies, so I'm all ready to go!
    But... like with scrapbooking, I'm blank and incapable! [​IMG]

    Any suggestions? Maybe a good website for making handmade cards?

    I have all these great supplies, and I would love to make good use of them. [​IMG]

    Well, I gave up on the handmade card idea. Just can't do it!

    Instead, I'll be using photoshop (something I'm better at) to make 'love coupons'. [​IMG]

    Didn't American Greetings have kiosk stations at local stores where you could design your own card?

    Something simple like layer some hearts and write a note inside. Maybe string some ribbons through the card. You can google romantic verses or love songs if you can't come up with your own words.

    Quote:omg.... i remember them! I make most of my cards, If i receive a card, i keep it and use the birthday cakes or logos or pictures for new cards. I have special scissors for cutting. making cards are so personal, and the time it takes, thought etc. all so sweet.
    Just the fact you are taking the time to think of something special counts! [​IMG] hope he has a wonderful birthday! [​IMG]

    I have the Print Shop software on my computer and it has the ability to make great cards. I use it all the time and you can add your own pictures and artwork to it.
