My Thoughts

I was given a $35 credit to review any of the newest items from Cardstore.com. There were so many creative products from which to choose so, it took me a while. The custom gift tags are especially cute, allowing your own pictures and words to be printed. I actually made a gift tag and, since you are able to save items, I saved it for my next purchase! I love that feature!  For this particular purchase, I was looking for cute photo holiday cards. We send them out each year with pictures of the boys and a little bit about what we've been up to during the year. I have high standards for my holiday cards and let me just say, it was awfully tough to choose just one card from Cardstore.com! So difficult, in fact, that I decided to get 2 different cards.

Gift Tags I made!

The $35 credit allowed me to purchase 11 cards in all, which came to about $3.18 each. It's about the same price a card costs at the store, but you get to personalize it and make it special. That's what I love the most about photo cards. They allow you to send greetings and also a little piece of yourself and your family for others to see. I love showing off my boys! So, here they are in my first Christmas card:
I was able to choose the print, pictures, the words, and the font! I decided to make a silly one, too! Here's card #2:

Isn't that cute? I had some issues fitting the heads, but Cardstore.com had the coolest feature that allowed me to zoom in to make their heads bigger and I cute turn the picture to make their heads tilt. Then, I was able to choose the words in the box. Shipping for the entire order was only $5, which is a great price, in my opinion! I've paid much more for cards and picture prints before.

I was very pleased with the products offered by Cardstore.com and also their customizable features available.  I would absolutely purchase from them again in the future and plan to next Christmas! So, are you ready to make your first purchase?
