How to create a custom card with Canva.com
Hands up if you’ve ever realized at the last minute that you forgot to buy a birthday card? Or you just couldn’t find one that seemed right for the occasion? So how did you solve the problem? Did you create a custom card or promise yourself that you’ll be more organised next time?
It happened to me recently when I was ready to go my Mum’s birthday party. I had a hard time finding the right card for her, and then promptly forgot all about it. On the day, when I had about until 10 minutes until I had to leave, I remembered the card. Or rather my lack of one. So I went straight to my computer and quickly whipped up a custom card using Canva.
Because no one should show up without a birthday card, I’ve put together a quick tutorial for you. This builds on my previous step-by-step post on how to create cards using images or inspirational quotes. In the video, I build on that and show you how to:
- decide on what size custom card to create
- add your image to the card
- create a message on the front and inside of the card.
What you will need
- A free Canva account
- JPGs of the photos or images you want to use
- The message to be included
