Transcript:How to Make Photo Greeting Cards

Hi, I'm Rebecca Ludens for About.com Home and Garden. Today I'm going to show you how to make your own photo greeting cards and announcements.

Homemade Greeting Card Supplies

You will need:
  • copies of your photos
  • cardstock
  • adhesive
  • a trimmer

Make a Greeting Card Envelope

To start, select envelopes the size that you would like your photo card to be. Measure the envelope to determine the exact size of your cards. Select a cardstock color that accents your photos. Use your trimmer to cut the background cardstock to size to fit in the envelope.

Trim the Card to Fit the Envelope

Crop your photo so that it fits on your background paper leaving room for a message or greeting.

Add a Message to the Card

Print out your message on cardstock and trim to fit on your card. Add simple embellishments such as punches or stickers to complete your card. This same simple process can be used to create cards and announcements that work with any theme. Thanks for watching, to learn more, visit us on the Web at homegarden.about.com.
