DIY Thank You Postcards

I LOVE making homemade cards, gift tags, and invitations. If you follow this blog, you have seen many of my tutorials for it all. The hardest part however is coming up with the graphics. These days, you can’t simply do a Google image search and take what comes up. Most people don’t know where to go to get images, and if you’re using google to grab images, you may be running into copyright issues.  GraphicStock solves all those needs by giving you royalty free access to their vast library. I mean, check out all these beautiful shabby chic downloads that are available.

  1. I have downloaded the site but what I want to know is how should one save the files? In what format to be able to add wording etc? Im having some difficulty…

    1. Hi Debbie, it depends on what application you are using (for example, Adobe Illustrator or iPiccy, Photoshop, etc.). You can also look for different apps as well. My best advice is to ask the help center for the application you are using.
