The market for Christmas collectibles is actually on the rise, according to Terry Kovel, co-author of the Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide. "All of the holidays have gotten more popular in collecting," she tells GoodHousekeeping.com. "And the most popular one obviously is Christmas." Vintage cards in good condition can fetch about $10 to $50 apiece, she says, but particularly valuable ones can shoot up into the three- or even four-figure range.
If you’re celebrating a birthday boy, you’ll find cards with charming animal illustrations and adventurous forest landscapes perfect for the plucky lad in your life (and all his future derring-do). Those entering their quarter- or mid-life crises deserve a card featuring sharp suiting, refined cocktails, and other trappings of fashionable maturity—it’s not so bad, we swear. Toast or roast the distinguished older gentleman in your life with funny birthday cards for men that make light of all those extra candles on the cake. Dry wit from The New Yorker and Derek Blasberg keeps the comedy fit for an evening at the Cafe Carlyle. Gents of any age will appreciate a card that features frosted gateaus, cream cakes, and other edible birthday indulgences. If you’d prefer to focus on the memories, a photo birthday card with an elegant typographic design or border frame lets you send a particularly sweet portrait of your jolly good fellow as you remember him best.
There are countless DIY projects out there involving maps and those are simply in addition to just displaying them! I am a sucker for maps. I have always loved to travel and with every generation traveling a bit more than the one before, I think maps will only become increasing popular. Because of what people call travellust. So what do you do when you can’t travel as much as you would like? Just stare at maps, and make plans for one day. That’s what I do. We previously shared a very popular collection of vintage map printables, so we decided to add a few more of our favorites to your stash. Where are you traveling next? 
First it was brush-lettered calligraphy place cards, then came rustic DIY chalkboards—but this year, designers are upping the ante once more and taking seating signage to new creative heights. “In 2019, guests are being guided to their seats in style,” says Dayna—and the options are virtually endless. From vintage-inspired luggage tags and customizable metallic maps for the couple who loves to jetset, to real fresh-cut leaves and mini planter sticks for green-thumbed brides and grooms, this year’s seating charts are both “personal and playful,” says Dayna. “Plus, they make for great keepsakes!”

I specifically left the themes on the date night cards fairly generic so that you could use a little creativity with your dates. So if you picked something like “Go Bowl,” it doesn’t necessarily have to mean go bowling. It could mean going out for noodle bowls for dinner, going and creating bowls at a paint your own pottery studio, or really anything you take it to mean.

If you are making cards or other products using third-party graphics, remember to check out the terms of the artist. Not all font creators, stamp and graphics designers, and other artists allow you to sell work that you have created using their work. Some of these companies have restrictions. These restrictions might include limiting the number of cards made from any one stamp in a year or how the cards may be sold (for instance from retail outlets only and not online or from markets). Some companies require that the stamp information is placed on the back of the card or that the designer's name is credited.

One of our favorite games to play, giddy in our seats, while awaiting a bride’s first steps down the aisle is “guess the veil.” And if last year was all about glittery, jazzed-up versions that can affectionately be described as “extra,” this year brides are switching things up yet again, often opting to forgo veils entirely. “Brides are turning traditionalism on its head—literally—and rethinking the classic veil with showstopping modern alternatives,” says Dayna. From bridal hats to feathered headpieces, there’s a fresh head-topper for every bridal style.

In February 2008, trouble at eBay, including a strike by some dissatisfied sellers, brought speculation that Etsy could be an increasing competitor.[55] At the same time, however, some Etsy sellers expressed discontentment with how Etsy was handling complaints about stores.[56] At the time, a comparison of the two websites included complaints that on Etsy, items are difficult to find, the interface "feels slow", and the buying and selling process is United States-centric.[57] Other reviewers enjoyed using Etsy's specialized search options,[58][59] including the "Shop Local" tool.[60]
Canva is the best place to design greeting cards if you have a Mac, but you can also use it to create hundreds of other projects, including business cards, flyers, book covers and infographics. In addition to being stylish, Canva’s images are high quality – you can move them around and resize them to fit your design without causing pixilation or creating jagged edges. And if you can’t find the right graphic in its huge library or you want to share a personal photo, you can upload your own. However, Canva is missing some basic photo editing tools, including a cropping tool and a red-eye remover, so you need to edit your images before you upload them. Also, it doesn’t have templates for traditional multi-fold cards like those you find in stores. Instead, it has templates to create flat, postcard-style cards. Another potential drawback is Canva is a subscription service. However, it’s easy to cancel your membership, so depending on the scope of your projects, it can end up costing less than some of the other programs we tested. There is also a decent free version, though it includes limited access to graphics. The service’s excellent support pages make it easy to figure out which membership is right for you or your business – its support information is searchable and detailed.

My granddaughter starts kindergarten this year and she has sight words she'll need to know. We made her a set of flash cards with all 300 of her sight words for the year. I needed to get them done and shipped off so she could get a head start and they were here before I knew it. Easy to use, did a mail merge and printed them all out with minor corrections, mostly of the mea culpa variety.

Call her clairvoyant, but last year Dayna predicted statement sleeves would take the bridal fashion world by puffy, voluminous storm in 2019—and all signs point to an accurate forecast. But before you start conjuring up visions of rigid, restrictive Victorian getups, think again—these sleeves are loose, flowy, and thanks to sheer fabrics and patterned lace cutouts, even downright sexy. Dayna’s top picks for a “glamorous, romantic, and completely Insta-worthy” long-sleeved look? Retro bell sleeves and—wait for it—an effortless silk bridal caftan.
As co-owners of The Land of Lost Content, the world’s largest archive of 20th Century popular culture, we’re always thinking of new, exciting ways to make Britain’s rich cultural heritage relevant to the modern consumer.

You wouldn’t get everyone in your life the same birthday present, so don’t settle for anything less than the perfect happy birthday card for your honoree. Start with a card featuring cake, macarons, or balloons in vivid colors and patterns that you’d never find at the party supply store. Cards stamped in silver, rose gold, and gold foil make every birthday a milestone (we won’t guess which one). There are even new rainbow and holographic foil choices for the recipient who lives in the future, but can’t resist a wee bit of sparkle. For something truly unique to the two of you, our photo birthday cards let you use a snapshot as the backdrop to your fond wishes—a lovely memento of the previous year, and the many more to come. It’s easy to add photos, crop and filter them, and accentuate your delivery with an envelope liner or designed online backdrop. If you’re a label-conscious gift-giver, pick out a card from design luminaries and master stationers like kate spade new york and Mr. Boddington’s Studio. There’s something for pretty, witty, or just plain silly birthday boys and girls, at every level of taste and rarefaction. (And laughs. Don’t forget laughs.) We’ll make it easier to deliver, too. Once you’ve chosen just the right card for your superannuated friend, use our online design tool to customize the wording and wrap up any lingering details with a figurative bow.
There is a plethora of photo editing tools that come with Mac computers, but it’s easier creating greeting cards when tools are in the same program. It has more than 165,000 royalty free images and 4,800+ templates to help you build a customized card for any occasion. All the editing tools are on the main page, which looks a bit cluttered. You hover the mouse over each tool for its name if you are having a hard time deciphering the images. You can print and export your finalized projects, but PrintMaster Platinum doesn’t have a sharing feature for popular social media platforms.

Velvet guestbooks. Paper bow-ties. Raw stone cufflinks. “Unexpected materials are a clever way to really draw friends and family into your celebration,” says Dayna. Keep guests guessing with a range of surface textures and finishes in unanticipated presentations—like this custom leather bouquet wrap, which serves as the ultimate rugged complement to any romantic flower arrangement. Tactile details that beg for a closer look (and maybe even a hands-on touch) encourage attendees to stay engaged in the moment—because there’s nothing wrong with snapping a picture, but some things are best experienced IRL.
Cover Verse: There are in the end three things that last: faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 Inside Verse: Though your heart must hold deep sadness right now, may it also hold the blessings of the love that will always be a part of you... Praying that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit, and carry you through this time of sadness.
