With having 2 children, we often receive many birthday card invitations during the year. These always end up in the garbage can or recycling bin depending who throws them away. I cringe at the money that is often wasted on invitations myself when planning my children’s parties. This year I looked thru my list and realized that only a handful of the 50 people we were inviting were not connected to the internet. I decided that there had to be a nice way to send out an electronic invitation that was appealing and had all the important information. For those that were not connected to the internet we mailed them a Make Your Own Birthday Card InvitationThey were simple to make and saved on custom invitations. Once those were done I sat down and set out to design one to send out via email to the other guests. In just a few simple steps you can Make Your Own Birthday Card Invitations to send via email and same money at the same time.
