Make your own quick cards to send to friends. February 7th is Send a Card to a Friend Day, so of course we can make easy diy cards to share. I'll show you how you can make a card in under 15 minutes. It's easy! This is a quick Cricut Project, but you can also make cards with whatever materials and tools you have on hand. The goal here is to make a card and send it to a friend.
Easy DIY Cards for Send a Card to a Friend Day
I don't know the history of Send a Card to a Friend Day. However, I think it's a brilliant idea. We could all use a little surprise mail once in a while, don't you think?
I like to use my Cricut Machine to speed up the DIY card making. This specific card features art draw using the Cricut Pen. You can also make cards for friends with all kinds of supplies. You just need cardstock and an idea. So for today we're going to make a quick Hello glitter card, because glitter makes everything more special.
Make a Hello Card for a Friend
For this easy diy card, I'm going to use my Cricut with some doodle art and a big shiny Hello. I didn't make the envelope for this tutorial, but you can make your own envelopes with Cricut Design Space too.
