To use an online free card maker, choose from card categories such as birthday cards, thank you cards, holiday cards, Christmas cards or Valentine’s cards. Next, choose the size of the card from a set of predefined sizes followed by the orientation of the card. Apply design formats, customize the card and send it to friends, or save it for future use.
Many online card makers offer free professional templates that can be customized for individual use. Modify the image in the template by choosing an image from stock images, or customize the card by uploading an image. Personalize the card further by adding text boxes and text or by changing the size, orientation, font, background or color. Tweak the card by adding clip arts, shapes, filters and effects.
To complete the card, save it in any size desired and print it in high resolution, or share it with friends over e-mail or on social media. Cards with stock images may be charged a nominal fee, which will need to be paid before use. Optionally, design a unique card from scratch without using a template by uploading custom photos and adding text. Some free online card makers may require a registration to create an account where card creation history is stored.
