Basic Invite Design Your Own Cards Review

Celebrations



MBE partnered with Basic Invite for this post

by Neima Pollak
MBE Staff Writer


Unique Cards Designed by You


Nothing says I love you more than receiving a personalized paper-and-ink card in your snail mailbox. Now's the perfect time to get to work on designing your own original heartfelt cards for the holidays as well as any other special occasions in your life coming up to send to family and friends. Basic Invite is here to help make it happen with beautiful styles to choose from like these exquisite watercolor holiday cards and many other card styles which you can easily customize in a multitude of ways.






What Sets Basic Invite Apart


It's easy to get confused with so many online stationery companies out there. Basic Invite stands out from the rest, giving you free reign when designing all aspects of your stationery, from card style to font, color and much more. Additionally, Basic Invite is among a select few online stationery companies which will mail you an actual printed sample of your design so you can hold it in your own hand and see what it's like before placing your card order. 

This card making company even offers a unique and time-saving Address Capturing Service, allowing customers to share a link on Facebook, Instagram and other social media channels to request friends' and family's addresses. These addresses are then stored in your Basic Invite account and can be selected by you during the design process when it comes to addressing invites and cards. What's more is they offer recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.







How Basic Invite Works


The process of designing a card on Basic Invites is very simple and straightforward. I tried designing a party invitation myself just to check it out and I had such an enjoyable time doing it that I wanted to keep designing more cards.



Step 1: Choose a Category

Select a category which fits the occasion for your card. Categories include Holidays, as well as Wedding, Graduation, Baby, Events, Stationery and Business cards, and multiple subcategories such as Save the Date (Wedding), Birth Announcements (Baby), Graduation (Events), and Thank You (Stationery). 



Step 2: Select a Template

After choosing a category, you will be presented with a number of templates that you can choose from to start designing your card, invite, announcement, etc. Some categories offer an option of uploading your own designs rather than using a pre-set template.







Step 3: Customize your card's elements including
  • Shape of the card
  • Type of paper 
  • Optional foil elements
  • Colors on the card (180+ colors to choose from)
  • Text details (font, size, alignment, color,  line height, and case)
  • Envelope color

Step 4: Designate Envelope Choices

Choosing from more than 40 different envelope colors, you can then personalize your addressing options (blank envelope, envelope with guest and return address or envelope with just the return address).


Step 5: Indicate Quantity of Cards You're Ordering


Step 6: Choose from a Variety of Paper Styles (some at an additional cost).


Step 7: Checkout and Wait to receive your Personalized Cards.

Disney Dumbo Movie Review + Giveaway

Movies



MBE partnered with Disney for this post

by Neima Pollak
MBE Staff Writer


Dumbo Home Entertainment Release


Disney returns to retell the classic tale of Dumbo (2019) a story about family, loyalty and bravery. Now, the same live action film that appeared on the big screen is flying high, available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital for viewers of multiple generations to watch together at home. Read on to learn all about this film and how you can enter MBE's giveaway to win one of the multiple Dumbo digital download codes provided to us by Disney.


Mommy Blog Expert with Dumbo at El Capitan Theater, Hollywood


The Story Line


Journey with young siblings Milly and Joe Farrier as they help a poor circus elephant, born with comically oversized ears to protect him from the insensitive circus performers and small town audiences who laugh at him. Though this sister and brother duo try everything to help Dumbo succeed in the Medici Brothers circus, conflict swells up when the beloved little elephant with big blue eyes is separated from his mother. Now the race is on to rescue Dumbo's mommy who has been forced to work when a cold and greedy businessman buys the old-fashioned traveling circus.




Vintage-like scenes inspired by the original 1941 animated version of this movie are scattered throughout the live action remake. Some of these include Dumbo’s appearance in the clown act, when he is encouraged to put out the fire on a “burning building” and the pink dancing elephants which Dumbo dreams about one night. 

From beginning to end, I was in suspense and could not pull myself away from this movie. Basically following the original animated storyline version I remember from my childhood, there are enough detail changes and plot twists to keep the story relatable and exciting for today's kids. Suffice it to say that this movie is overflowing with dramatic action sequences which will have you rooting for Dumbo and friends, from tents burning up in fire to the children being chased by the big bad guys.

CGI and Some Intense Scenes


Part of what made this so exciting and fun to watch were the detailed and flashy costumes that all the characters wore, as well as the phenomenal visuals. The CGI of Dumbo flying inside the Big Top circus tent is also worthy of note as it was so convincing and well-done. In fact, you may find yourself believing that Dumbo really can fly!

Because of the high-quality graphics and certain more intense scenes, remember this is a live action film directed by Tim Burton who is known for scary imagery like what viewers saw in Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass, which was produced by Burton. As such, Dumbo may be a little too frightening for younger audiences, so you may want to consider having a big kid’s movie night for this one. 

About Disney Dumbo


Disney's Dumbo is now widely available for home enjoyment on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital download.


Blu-Ray Bonus Content
  • Deleted scenes
  • Easter eggs on parade
