My best friend is turning 18 soon and i wanted to make her a really special card.
I was thinking of something involving a photo of her and I as kids.
What about making an easel card? I have made a few of these and they seem to be received well :)
I made a tutorial for you about them here:
First, ask yourself if you have such a photo. If you do, throw it out and come up with a better idea.
