Review: Cardstore

Ok, how cute are we? is this card? 

     

I love cards. I really do. I love buying them, writing in them, receiving them, helping someone pick one out - anything! Some people think they're a waste of money because you read it and toss it. Well, I read it and keep it. It makes for quite the stash that takes up space in our storage room, but every couple months when I stumble upon them and flip through them, it makes it all totally worth it.

When I got an e-mail asking if I'd like to try out Cardstore I honestly did think twice about it because I've already read a few blog posts about people who tried it, reviewed it, and said all was good. But, in all honesty, I couldn't pass up a free card. So I decided to make one for my hubs - it started as an Anniversary card since our anniversary is coming up this month, but it turned into more of a just-because-i-love-you card. The entire process of making my own card was super easy, quick, and really fun! Here's why I loved Cardstore:
  • Uploading photos was super easy! See, I have this problem where I can't make a decision for the life of me, so when doing something like this I tend to try 842 different templates with 79 different photo + font combinations. Cardstore let me upload photos from my computer, facebook, instagram, photobucket... basically anywhere you might have your photos posted or stored. And the upload took just seconds.
  • There were so many templates to choose from! And I mean they are actually cute templates, not cheesy flowers and smiles.
  • Editing was easy! I could tweak the template, change the font, add pictures... basically anything I wanted to do to take the template and make it my own.
  • You can write what you want! I love to stand in Hallmark and find that perfect card, but we've all been in a situation when we just can't find what we're looking for. And using Cardstore gives you the ability to create your own perfect.

Seriously though, I'm probably going to use it for our Christmas cards. Tried it + loved it. Plus, now that P has opened the card I'm probably going to frame all that cuteness for some lucky end table so it's basically like a 2 - 4 - 1. Check it out and let me know what you think!
