How to make creative cards

It’s that time of the year again! Turkey holiday! It’s time to eat, celebrate and be thankful for what we have. Happy thanksgiving! It’s a holiday we usually spend home, with our families or the close ones. And if we can’t be there there are always Thanksgiving cards! A good holiday card can make a lot of impact if you are away from the ones you love and sending a warm message to your folks is always a good thing. So, what makes a good card? Here are a few tips and tricks.

Get personal

If you want your card to really show how you feel, it might be the best to make you own. As we said, Thanksgiving is a family holiday and sending a piece of your own charm can be the best way to go.
