American Greetings Creatacard Gets THIS Mom Back On Track

Ok.  I admit.  I am THE WORST when it comes to getting cards out on time.  Mainly because I have "mom brain" and I forget to purchase cards while out and about.  American Greetings has come up with the perfect solution for busy mom's like me.  The new iPad app, creatacard is the fun app that lets your kids decorate and customize their own card.  Then, for $3.49, you can have it printed on quality cardstock that looks and feels like a real greeting card (because it IS a real greeting card).  American Greetings will then ship it out to your loved ones, personalized with your little guys own special touches!

You can create your own design or customize one of their many designs.  They even have several for Grandparents Day that's coming up on September 7, 2014.  (Hurry, you'll need to create your card by August 28th to be sure that card makes it your Grandma's and Grandpa's on time)

When creating your own, there are so many fun options to choose from.  It's made for ages 6-8 year olds, but really, my 3.5 year old loves the drawing features and has already figured out how to add stickers and her own selfies.  I even enjoy creating with all the features that it has!

Once the masterpeice is complete, your little Artiste will need mom or dad to complete the purchase and schedule the card to be sent.  An additional feature of the app is the ability to pull the address directly off your contacts from your iPad!  NICE!

After that, the fun doesn't end!  Your little one can follow the process on the "Where's My Card" section in the app. From printing all the way through final delivery. 

We are following ours now and can't wait to see the finished product when our Grandparents receive their first cards. 

You can go to this link http://po.st/3FiFDz to download the app from iTunes and try it out for yourself.  The app is free!

Thanks American Greetings, creatacard will be my new best friend and go-to for greeting cards.  So, now all I need to do is get my calendar set to notify me in time...
