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.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Visit the project canvas for this card in Cricut Design Space and follow the onscreen instructions to draw and cut the card.
  2. Assemble the card and adhere layers together as appropriate.

I told you it was quick and easy, didn’t I?
