I love finding new gift ideas. I have always liked to get a little creative with it. My husband is not easy to do things for, that is for sure so I was racking my brain on Valentines day this year. We usually keep it simple and sometimes even cheesy on Valentines day because, well that’s just us! I had gotten a card for him weeks early and when valentines day rolled around it was no where to be found. {probably because I was moving my office and in a bit of a mess-oops!} But I did find two GIANT cards I got at the dollar store last year and they weren’t too bad. (hee hee) They had cut out hearts on the front and were blank on the inside, annnd did i mention they were BiG? Like about 10×16 inches big!

Perfect.

One for my mom

&&&

One for my honey!

So how was I to give these cards my personal touch?!!

Hmmmm….

Then I thought of “my BFF” {hubby} and the ringtone on my phone and how Tim McGraw gets me every time with his song,

“My Best friend”

Seriously every word of that song describes how I feel about my husband!

<3

So being the graphic enthusiast that I am, I decided to made  a song lyric print that had a special meaning.

This song is not “our song” but its a good one to listen to and get that good feeling knowing I have been blessed.

Blessed with an amazing BFF. 

I was hoping my recipient would feel the same way when he listened to the copy that I made him!

On my Mothers card I put a sweet little song we would sing to each other in our younger days. 

It was a little cheesy but appropriate way to show my love to my “mommy”! 🙂 

Oh! And I decided that this is a project i will be tackling again,

and you can too if you’d like.

What you will need is:

an 11×17 piece of cardstock — for an 8.5×11 size card

{this can be found at your office,  hobby, or copy store, and envelopes this size are easy to get there also}

Cut out shapes, letters or photo’s for the front

your lyrics{or verse} for the inside

Burn a CD to go with it and attach to the inside

There you have it!

A sweet and sentimental gift/card.

Isn’t that what cards are all about?!!

I think I may try making some wedding ones because I think the thought would make a cute addition to some cash or gift card.

My mind is swirling with imagination of all the things I could create here…

Yep!

So I may be back with another post when that happens.

Now:

Tell me what Lyrics would you want to see on your homemade card?
Don’t be afraid to comment! Do it!

 

Enjoy!
