Happy Friday Everyone!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful week and is ready for the weekend…I know I am! Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I decided to share a DIY post! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do a How to DIY your own Valentine’s Day Cards. I absolutely love DIY projects because it’s a way to show your creativity and it’s super inexpensive. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love to save money!
If you’re like me you love sending out cards for holidays and birthdays. Whenever I’m out and about, I always find myself in the aisles filled with cards, crafts, and party goods. Sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised and I find wonderful cards. However, there are also times when I find some generic cards. Then, I began to make my own cards to send out. Since everyone is so tech savvy these days, I decided the best way to DIY was to make my own electronic cards. I decided to use the website Canva, which is extremely easy to use.
Canva, is a website that was created in 2012 it uses a drag and drop format. Canva has become immensely popular it’s used by professional graphic designers, bloggers, influencers, and everyone else it between. (It’s also perfect to make pins for Pinterest, just in case you didn’t know.)
The greatest part about Canva is that you can create your Valentine’s Cards and they are printable, which means you can also drop them in the mail. Or you can just download them onto your computer or USB drive and save your own design. If you’re using Canva, you can make your cards as unique as your heart desires.
When you first begin, you will find a blank white canvas. In order to create your card, you will need to find a template. A template can be found in Canva, by simply typing a keyword into the search bar. Since the post is all about creating your own Valentine’s Day Cards, our keywords will be “Valentine’s Day.”
Canva also offers graphics to add to your templates, so that you can customize your cards as much as you like. You can create Valentine’s Day cards for all the special people in your life. It allows you to have creative freedom and to create cards based on the personalities of your loved ones. This is such an easy and fun process and it’s not just limited to Valentine’s Day. You can create your own cards for any special holiday or occasion. I hope everyone enjoyed this post!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
