Having greeting or thank you cards personalised adds a nice touch to the timeless classic but transparent cards are even nicer and you can make them at home!

Process
A transparent greeting card is made by printing a design onto a OHP transparency (see below for suppliers) using a normal inkjet printer. The transparency is then laminated creating a custom transparent greeting card. You can see the step by step process of making transparent greeting cards over here (same process).

Design
Now the key to a good greeting card design without having good design skills is to find a nice background. You can use free image sites such as freeimages.com or Unsplash. Then simply overlay a message in a nice script typeface/font. You can use a software like Microsofr Publisher or Inkscape which is free to lay out the card.
