I really enjoyed creating this card. The total cost for my customized card, including postage and color printing, was well under $4. When you think of the cost of driving to the store and taking the time to dig through the racks, not to mention that most cards cost $2-3 these days, this is a WAY better deal with a lot more love involved! Not only that, but Cardstore has plenty of promo codes and sales that make it even more economical.
You can even take photos straight from your Facebook albums to use in creating the card. I had an old photo of Lindsey and me that I wanted to include. I picked the card I liked most, then added the photo.

Super cute, right? I typed a personalized message, and had the card mailed directly to Lindsey via snail mail.
You can also opt to have the card sent to you, so you can sign yourself and mail it. I actually think this is a great option; you could create custom cards at the beginning of the year for birthday, Father's Day, Mother's Day, etc. and order them all at once. Then you'll have them on-hand whenever you need them! Wouldn't it be a cool idea to have a little card organizer by month so you were always ready to send the next custom card out?
Here are a few other designs I'm loving...
