Reason #859029122 why I love making my own cards: I can personalize the sentiment to my voice.
What do I mean by that? Well, you know how we all have our personal "slang"? Little phrases that seem to come out when we are around those we are most comfortable with... maybe even local slang that you use when greeting someone or congratulating them. Sometimes store bought cards can be so generic with their sentiments.
I Miss You
Thinking Of You
Okay okay. Yes, I make a plethora of cards using those very sentiments. But I like to throw in some that use phrases like:
Dude... It's your BIRTHDAY
How You Doin'?
Oh My Gah!
You see where I'm going here? So maybe the next card you make, consider personalizing it even more with one of your "signature" phrases. The recipient is sure to get a kick out of it! Here is a card using Jen's new kit with a personalized sentiment.
