I’m the worst at picking out greeting cards in a store! It’s not only overwhelming, but I seem to have a hard time finding just the right one.

If you have the same problem, the 4 featured cards should give you some inspiration for your own card making. You’ll find a variety of ideas for making cards, such as, from a craft kit, using scrapbook stamps and dies, and even how to upcycle a card.


I’m adding my free pineapple printable note cards to the mix for another greeting card idea. You can choose from a “Thank You” version or the plain one as seen in the photo below. I hope you have time to visit my post!
