Just found out that my article about making your own cards just went online at
The Dollar Stretcher
Greeting cards are a tradition in my family. My grandfather worked photographic magic to make photo collage cards decades before Photoshop was ever invented, and my mother makes cards with illustrations, stamps, pop-ups, and wonderful poems. I've made my own holiday cards for several years now, with an online graphic, a thought or scripture, and a few short tidbits about my family. I can print them on a Xerox and mail them with regular postage, and I probably save $3.00 apiece over Hallmark options. I hope this is an idea that catches on--everybody can use some extra money right about now.
