Turn Anything into Whimsy

What makes a scene whimsical? Usually, it's a single element that's out of place or odd. Like a seashell hanging from a Christmas tree or wearing goulashes in the desert. Whimsy is a unique sight and can add a lot to the notes you send. For some ideas on creating whimsical note cards, look no further than right below.

Using Whimsical Photos

You can plan for your note cards by staging a whimsical shot you'd like to use. There are already two examples above, but you want more, right? How about adding painted rocks to a basket of Easter eggs or setting up an optical illusion where chairs seem to be stuck to the wall or ceiling? If you are going to use these white note cards after a wedding, plan on using some free photo props to stage your whimsical photo.

Adding Whimsy to Ordinary Photos

You don't have to plan your whimsy in advance; sometimes the best whimsy is spontaneously adding something to an existing idea or photo. You can make these extra elements a part of your whimsical note card project with some drag and drop magic, or design and print stickers to add later. Coordinate your stationary by uploading your design to a holiday sticker.

Turn Around a Turn of Phrase

Whimsy doesn't have to be visual; you can also spell it out in words. If you are making cards to keep on your desk for little notes from time to time, why not try something ironic? Their phrases are perfect for eye rolls and laughs:

  • The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have for catching up.
  • Plan today to be spontaneous tomorrow.
  • Always be proud of how modest you are.

Once you've found your whimsy, you're just about done. Shutterfly's tools are easy to use and let you create something unique and personal. Why not give it a try now?
