Holidays are an extra fun time to use Storyboard That! One feature that many users are unfamiliar with is the ability to create Holiday Cards!

Card Template Instructions

Create a three-cell storyboard for Mother’s Day. This could be a short story (beginning, middle, and end), a joke, a special message to your mother, or whatever you want!


Cell 1 is the front of the card.


Cell 2 is the left inside page.


Cell 3 is the back of the card.



Storyboards of any layout can be converted into a folding card, but only the first three cells will appear. Titles and descriptions are not printed on the card, so use “Textables” inside the cell if you want to include text.

  1. After you save your storyboard, click "Make a Folding Card" and then click "Mother’s Day" (or whatever holiday you wish). The right inside page is a pre-written message that you select at this step. Choose the artwork and message that works best for you!

  2. Print out the pop-up image, and fold.

    • Hold the paper so the front of the card is right-side-up in the bottom right corner.
    • Then, fold the paper in half away from you (you should see the back of the card on the left and the front of the card on the right).
    • Fold the paper again so you only see the front.

  3. Don't forget to sign your card!


Storyboard That currently offers holiday card templates for New Years, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, and general Season’s Greetings.

Conflict in A Tale of Two Cities
Create your own at Storyboard That MAN vs MAN MAN vs SELF MAN vs SOCIETY Madame Defarge doesn’t just seek revenge on Charles and his uncle and father; she also wishes to make sure that his wife and daughter are eliminated. She takes a gun and goes to their lodging in Paris, but Miss Pross is the only one there. Miss Pross keeps Mme. Defarge from opening a door in the house, so Mme. Defarge attacks her. When she reaches into her dress and pulls out a gun, Miss Pross grabs her wrist and the gun goes off, killing Mme. Defarge. Sydney Carton is a lonely, unhappy man who seems to be in a deep depression about his life and what could have been different. He bears a strong resemblance to Charles Darnay, and often wistfully compares himself to Charles’ successes. He believes that Lucie could make him whole, but she does not love him the way that he loves her. He swears he will do anything for her or for those dear to her, a promise which he fulfills when he sacrifices his life for Charles. Darnay was taken away from his father by his mother many years before because of the atrocities his father and uncle committed. He views his family name as a source of shame, and he renounces it and his inheritance to his uncle later on. However, he is still a member of the aristocracy in the French peasants’ eyes, and there is no place for him to return when he comes back to try to save Gabelle. While he is accepted in England, his family’s crimes cannot be forgiven in France.
