Resources for design your own photo cards?

Anyone have a good resource for design your own photo cards --where you can set up the design of the card, where to add text, photos, etc?

We need to do change of address cards and DH wants me to do this specifc design -- he wants a photo of Z pulling a suitcase away from our old house and then pulling the suitcase up to the new house. Then we need text that says new address etc.

I have looked at the standard photo places, shutterfly, kodak, cvs and they do not have a design your own that I can find --they have predesigned cards none of which will work with this idea. Surely somone has a site where you can design your own?

Anyone know?

Picnic.com goes to the Brandywine Picnic Park? I thought about Photoshop but I don't have that on my computer --and sadly even if I did I probably would have no idea how to use it Sad Yes I am a loser that way.

You are not a loser...DH has photoshop and I can barely figure out how to open it....definitely can't do anything with it. He tried to explain it to me once and it went straight in one ear and out the other. Too complicated.

Have you looked on etsy? You might be able to find someone to design one just how you want it.

THANK YOU CARRIE! you're a lifesaver! Etsy does have resources where I can pay someone to photoshop it. Now to actually go and take the photos. . .

If there's one thing I've learned it's that Etsy has EV.ERY.THING. lol That's a cute idea, by the way! I wish we would have done moving cards!

Same here...even with a designer for a husband and me working in a department at work with all designers - Photoshop is so hard to me. Justin has tried to show me several time and so has my boss and I still can't get it.

I would definitely go with etsy. Usually you can get a PDF for $15 and print them yourself.
