linking up with Darcy’s sweet shot today :)
celebrate the new year!
i wanted to make happy new year cards and needed to write thank you cards.
i decided to combine the two into one nice card :)
take a family photo or a photo of the kiddos…
this can be tricky – the outdoors are distracting to baby.
i edited it in iPhoto -crop to a square and leave space for text on the photo
go into picasa 3 download here
click the photo you want to edit
i chose big caslon for happy and edwardian script for 2011
export your photo back to iPhoto (i don’t like how picasa prints)
duplicate your photo
print “custom” size 5 x5
print 2 on one sheet of photo paper
*you could probably do it all in one app like picasa and
save yourself a few steps, but i am picky and choosy ;)
then with your favorite cardstock create 6.5 x 6.5 square card.
have all the family members thank the recipient inside the card
adhere photo to front and mail asap :)
and i have one for me!
happy new year!
