Who doesn’t love getting a greeting card? Lately, I’ve been getting crafty and and decided to make DIY personal greeting cards for people I care about.

I never considered it before, but since having to stay home because of Covid-19, I haven’t been going to the store as much. I love getting creative but don’t enjoy shopping for craft supplies anymore so I shop online. I also thought making DIY Greeting Cards would be time consuming and difficult.

But making DIY Greeting Cards is quite easy if you use cardstock. I have terrible handwriting so puffy sticky letters help too. Here is an easy DIY Greeting Card tutorial.
