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 has become immensely popular it’s  used by professional graphic designers, bloggers, influencers, and everyone else it between.

  2. Canva is perfect for those who dont know much about photoshop or illustration. I like canva as well 🙂 Thanks for this post, greeting you a advance Happy Valentine and enjoy your date 🙂


  3. I have had Canva on my IPad for a couple of months and haven’t spent any time with it. These cards looks sharp. I’ll have to find time to learn how to use the app.
