Last Minute Christmas e-Card Tutorial

Well it’s December 23rd here and it’s time to start thinking about Christmas cards. If you’re in the same boat then you’re in luck. They’re easy! Sending an e-card is free and fun. This tutorial uses the new online design site, Canva. I signed up when they hadn’t gone live and it’s fun to play around with. This morning I made this cute little card.
