CoffeeShop Blue Bird Card Template!

I realized the other day that this generation isn't going to have that special little box of cards/letters handwritten by their loved ones way back in their closet. Now we have emails, and they can be lost forever by a hard drive crash, and they are certainly not as romantic as a handwritten card. I miss the days of receiving personal mail and I long to bring those days back.

In that spirit, I am going to start designing 5x7 card templates. This card includes a front/inside/back and you can customize the text (I already have text layers included on the card front you can click on saying "I miss you!" and "Thinking of you!" or write your own message). The front is a Adobe .psd file, so just click on the bottom layer, drag an image you wish to place in the cutout, and Ctrl-T free transform it to fit. Then flatten.
You can also use these templates as 5x7 storyboard templates! Imagine how cute all three would be hanging on your walls.
The little bird and flower graphics are adorable little brushes that you can download free from Pixels & IceCream.
