It is always so nice to send a homemade card. I love designing beautiful cards that bring positivity and joy into someone’s life. So I’m going to teach you how to make fun and easy cards of own design in a step-by-step tutorial.

I love this sweet little house card — it makes for a sweet little happy birthday card or housewarming card for a special family member. Add a house number for a personal touch.

Aren’t these cards so fun? These are a perfect sweet gesture to give to anyone any time of year! You can give these greeting cards for any reason – as a thank you card, congratulations or just as a simple thinking of you card. And changing the paper to match your preference is a creative way to personalize this card and give it a whole new look! Look at how cute and fun this mushroom house card below looks:

Add a special message inside by hand or use your Cricut to write it out neatly inside your cute card. I can also show you how to add a print-then-cut photo to the card, which is a great way to truly personalize your own greeting cards.
