Create custom cards for any occasion or notecards for everyday use in a matter of minutes with Easy Peasy Printable Templates and a FREE Canva account.

I don’t want to even think about the number of times I’ve had to run to the store to pick up a card for a special occasion last minute. Usually I end up standing in the card aisle wishing I could find the right sentiment or a cuter image and ending up purchasing something that was more expensive than I would have liked and not exactly what I wanted.

Easy Peasy Printables helps me avoid the last minute rush – instead of running out, I simply sit down at my desk and create the exact thing I had in mind. And creating cards isn’t the only thing it’s good for – although that’s what I’m covering here!

Getting Started

Easy Peasy Printables makes things simple – most of the supplies needed you probably already have on hand. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Easy Peasy Printables templates for Canva
  • computer with internet access
  • color printer (sending the file to a favorite copy shop works too!)
  • scissors or a paper trimmer
  • white cardstock
  • FREE Canva account
  • colored notecard envelopes (optional)
  • gel pens (optional)

You don’t have to have a fancy art degree or be tech savvy to create with Canva and Easy Peasy Printable Templates. Each template comes in 2 different sizes – 5″x7″ and 8″ x10″ and there are dozens of great font pairings in the file so you don’t have to worry about finding what looks good.

All you need to do is find the quote, party details or anything really and be able to type it in. Our quick start video shows you everything you need to know to get started and even helps you figure out the perfect settings for downloading and printing your project.

So here’s how I use the 5″x7″ templates to create custom cards:

Once you’ve got your files downloaded, it’s time to print and trim off any white edges with your paper trimmer or scissors. Then you’re ready to fold – you can see how I cut and fold the purple floral template to create different sizes!
