I love sending good old fashioned snail mail to friends and family. Something about getting something in the mail that makes you smile and knowing someone spent a little extra time to send you something to lift your spirits. Since I got my Cricut Joy that is one of my favorite things to make. I’ve been a card making machine making custom cards on the Cricut Joy App.

At first, I would only use the ready to make templates until I discovered I could customize! Did you know you don’t have to limit yourself to the ready to make cards in the Cricut Joy App when you want to create a card? I was so excited when I discovered I could make a custom card on the Cricut Joy App! The possibilities became endless! You can add text to add a name or a simple word like You’re to the awesome design! Add a fun image. You can choose if you want to cut a design or draw a design or a little of both.

So, I am excited to share with you how to make custom cards on the Cricut Joy! Pictures are worth a thousand words so here are some visual examples to guide you through creating your custom card.
