Whether it’s a birthday, farewell, friendship’s day or you just feel truly blessed to have great friends; you can share your feelings with a personalized card designed on Canva.

Our team of professional designers has created a number of friendship cards, for every possible occasion. Just choose a greeting card that best reflects your love for your friends, add pictures and text, if needed and you’re done! It’s that simple and completely free as well.

Collaborate with your friends to create the perfect card

Canva allows you to share your greeting card design with family and friends, so that you can get their suggestions and feedback before finalizing the card. Thus, making sure your greeting card has just the right balance of emotion and creativity. To share your design, click on the ‘share’ button and enter the email address of your friends who you want to collaborate with. Just remember to check the ‘Can Edit’ box before pressing the send button to allow your friends to make edits.

You can also make last minute changes to your greeting card design by downloading the Canva app from the Apple Store for your iPad or iPhone.

Get your greeting card printed in high resolution

Thus, making sure your card looks just as impressive on paper as it does on the screen.
