Despite the convenience of a text message or an email when sending a message to a friend or loved one, we can’t totally forget how the traditional personalized cards can be more appealing. You can be creative by playing on colors and sizes for your card and make your cads more attractive. You can also try sending out flat or folded greeting cards to maximize space depending on the content of your card.
Each card we make takes anything from a few weeks to several months to complete. Many of the elements of the animation are actually painted by hand (using real paint, brushes and paper!) because the textures and colours achieved that way are so much more attractive than the electronic equivalent. These paintings are then scanned into electronic form, and the laborious process of animation starts. Finally, the music is created to accent or complement the animation.

The market for Christmas collectibles is actually on the rise, according to Terry Kovel, co-author of the Kovels' Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide. "All of the holidays have gotten more popular in collecting," she tells GoodHousekeeping.com. "And the most popular one obviously is Christmas." Vintage cards in good condition can fetch about $10 to $50 apiece, she says, but particularly valuable ones can shoot up into the three- or even four-figure range.

There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.
Back in the year 2000, Jacquie Lawson, an English artist living in the picturesque village of Lurgashall in Southern England, created an animated Christmas card featuring her dog and cats, and her 15th-century cottage, and sent it to a few friends for their amusement. Those friends sent the ecard to others, and within weeks Jacquie was inundated with requests from all over the world to design more. In February 2002 she teamed up with a few friends and family members to create jacquielawson.com.
When it comes to birthday cake designs for adults the patterns change very much. Adult's birthday cakes are much simpler looking and the range of flavors increase. Adults recognize and like many kinds of cake flavors. An important ingredient that is added in cakes for adults is alcohol, specifically rum. The designs for adult's birthday cakes can be simple and sometimes naughty.
If the birthday cake is big in size, then decorate the whole cake like a village landscape, with the small cottages and rivulets flowing around. Decorate the cottages, fields, trees and rivulets with different colored cream and see the cake have a life of its own. If done properly these specially decorated birthday cake will look real and your child will not even agree to cut the cake. Even your guests will remember these cakes always.
