For a friend’s birthday in 2004, we made him Magic the Gathering cards. I got a lot of help from an online forum, misetings.com, which I think became misetings.net and now //forums.goodgamery.com/. I made an entry back in 2004 about the birthday, and recently updated the link to the cards. The trickiest thing was finding a good template (and modifying it) and spending time to edit some of the more complicated pictures. The flavor text and card abilities were really fun to write.
