How to make business cards using Picasa

So I told you that I like to pretend that I am a graphic designer. Unfortunately, since I am actually not a graphic designer, I am not able to use all the cool tools they use - like Photoshop.  (Nor can I even AFFORD photoshop.

Well, I really wanted some business cards similar to hers.  I love the simple statements and oversized pictures that she uses.  She is an awesome (actual) graphic designer.  But I do not have the same tools.  So, I used Picassa, a FREE tool by google.

I had them printed by moo.com. And showed them on my vlog.  Well, the feedback was awesome.  Someone even told me that they were looking for the template I used!  Which would be impossible to find, because I didn't use a template.  I just used a picture that I took.

Here is a video tutorial showing you how I did it.



Then after I did it, I realized that some people may just prefer to use my templates - and people do other crafts, too.  So, I made a few for you to download. You are welcome!








P.S. The moo.com link is my refer-a-friend link!  It would be awesome if you used it!
