How to create a Christmas card in Canva
New Year’s and Christmas holidays are here, a time of celebration and joy. Due to the overall situation with Covid 19, this year’s celebration will be different than usual. Most of us will probably stay home and spend the holidays watching TV.
Since we will not spend the holidays with friends and family, it is the right time to at least make and send them a Christmas card and thus wish them happy holidays. That’s why we made a detailed tutorial on how to make a Christmas card using Canva, a free program that you can but don’t have to download since the entire program works within the browser. You can access Canva’s website HERE.
