Why Choose A Handmade Card?

A handmade card is actually pretty special. When you are giving a gift like this, you are basically giving that person a part of yourself. But some people are still reluctant to give these kinds of cards. They are after all seen as cheap and home made and only people who are either a miser or as stingy as can be.

With the current financial situation in the world, it is important for people to consider this option. You need to be able to save money whichever way you can and who is to say that you cannot scrimp on cards to people? Here are some of the reasons why you should give people handmade cards:

1. It’s cheap but NOT ALWAYS
If you do not have the budget to buy gifts, then swallow your pride and start making that card. People will understand especially now with the current economic crisis going on. Besides people nowadays are seeing handmade gifts in a new light. They now feel that these cards are okay and are actually quite economical.

2. It’s the trend
Believe it or not, giving handmade cards is not considered tacky anymore. QUITE THE REVERSE. In fact, in some ways it is a celebrated endeavour because it shows that you are practical, wise and very creative. People who give these cards  have artistic talents and are able to put their heart into what they are giving. Handmade cards are also seen to have more meaning than something that you have only bought from a supermarket.

3. It’s more personal
Handmade cards are much more personalized. After all, when you give them to a person, you have not only given your time and money into it but also a part of yourself. You decide what to put into it, from its designs and drawings to its dedication at the back. Every idea came from your head and as cheesy sounding as it is, from your heart. Most people will actually appreciate a handmade card than something that is factory manufactured but be careful with the people that you give them to. They are often given to people who you feel are very close and dear to you.

4. It is more meaningful
The time and the effort that you put into making the card as well as the ideas that you have come up with is priceless. Handmade cards have more meaning into them than any other gift. They can actually if you permit to a reflection of not only your personality but also the feelings that you have for the person that you are giving it to. That is why, these cards are often only given to people who are close to you.

5. It’s an outlet for your talent
In giving a handmade card, you are basically using the talent that God has given you, be it the ability to design and make a card,  compose a poem or a song or something as simple as how to bake a cake. You can also make use of the hobbies that you have and make a gift from out of them. For instance, if you love photography you can make use of your photographs. The same goes with people who do sketching and caricatures. You can enjoy yourself and at the same time make your cards. Doing this, you can basically do two things in one go and save time.

You can rest assured that 99% of the people that you send one of your self made cards will keep and treasure them.    They WONT end up in the Bin, this I assure you


Talk soon and buy these cards -----dont think about it, they will be gone
