card maker and a photography, I like to combine the two and set up vignettes or still lifes that can be used as a card front. With the ability to add text to a photo (have I told you how much I love Picasa?), you can make quick cards by choosing a photo, adding text, downloading them to your photo lab, cutting and scoring the card stock while you wait for them to print, pick them up and add the the photo to the cards! You have original cards like no one else's as you took the photo!
When I set up a vignette, I try to be aware enough to leave a spot for a little text, like the photo above could have a cute little quip printed in white and placed in the dark lower right hand corner.
I will see if I can find some more examples.
