Do you LOVE all of those adorable little photo X-Mas cards?? If you’re anything like me-it’s almost a disappointment these days when you open up that envelope and discover WHAT?!? No Picture?!?!
I LOVE making my Christmas cards every year and deciding what photos to use….but they are just so darn pricey.
To start, just draw a 4×6 sized square. (Use the rulers along the top and sides of powerpoint as a guide-see arrow.)
Next, insert your picture and size/crop it how you want. I added a few boxes, lines, text boxes and other pictures to mine this time-but you don’t have to be that fancy!!! A lot of times I think less is more!
Here’s the one I made for Finny’s announcement:
You can look on Shutterfly, Pinterest, etc. to get inspiration for your design.
When you’re finished with your design, save it as a JPEG. You will need to open it up in a program like paint shop or photo shop to crop your new JPEG to get your 4×6 image-just crop it and get rid of all of that white background.
Then, just upload it to Shutterfly and order as PRINTS.
This time, I got the prepaid deal and got 200 cards for 20 bucks!!!! Bargain! Now, if I could only figure out a way to save money on the postage:) LOL!
