It’s taken a few extra days, but my photo card kits are ready! And I love them so. Here are a few quick details:
There are six different cards. Each measures 5×7 inches, and are fully layered PSD files (so you will need Photoshop or Photoshop Elements to use them). Almost every element is customizable where colors are concerned, and several have photo options that aren’t shown above; you can see more details about each individual card over at Freshly Hued.
I liked the idea of them being versatile, so with a few quick switches here and there, you could use these for invitations, baby announcements, whatever you like, too. To see a few examples of them in action, there’s a slideshow right over here.
I also made several digital papers to use as backgrounds and bundled them into two paper packs. These are sized at 5×7 inches (to keep things easy), and come in a variety of colors and patterns, all with a subtle paper texture. The would work well as a “back” if you’re printing double-sided cards, too.
All of my photo card kits are digital files with instant downloads, so this means that I won’t be printing and mailing your cards to you (or for you – sorry!). But the beauty of a DIY photo card like this is you can print them anywhere you want to – a local printer, a photo counter, or online. I like Persnickety Prints for regular photos, and Overnight Prints for thicker postcards. And as for envelopes? Look for A7 envelopes at your local craft store. Those are big enough to fit your photo card, and small enough to still go through regular mail (for USPS regulations, that is).
In the mean time, let’s celebrate and do a giveaway!
There will be three winners, and each will get their favorite photo card kit + both paper packs! But what if you don’t have Photoshop/Elements, or don’t have the time this year? If you’ve got a favorite photo, I’ll put together your card for you (think of it as a make-it-for-me option) – winner’s choice.
To enter, simply leave a comment and tell me your favorite photo card (all six designs can be found right here). If you’d like to tweet or blog about the giveaway, too, that’d be awesome. You can even pin your favorite card on Pinterest, if you like. However you talk about it, link to this post and leave another comment with a link to your tweet/post/pin so it can be counted.
Winners will be randomly chosen on November 25th. You have until midnight PST on the 24th to enter! Giveaway is open to everyone; make sure you leave your email address along with your comment so I have a way to contact you if you win.
