Free Valentine ECard-And a Canva Review


Really hope that this post finds you well, happy, and thriving in the best way you can.

This week, I felt like ringing the changes, so thought you might like a quick ecard video as a change. If you like it, please feel free to use and share it as much as you wish.

It uses my own images (which you can buy in my Craftsuprint shop, if you prefer) and music ("Blue Dream") by Cheel, licensed for free via YouTube.

And yes, I know Valentine's Day isn't until next month. But it's another of those cases where uploading this now, it gets to be "in the system," as it were, in time for Valentine's Day itself.

Trying out a new ecard creator

I created it using's free ecard creator (and no, that's not an affiliate link or a promotion in any way). Then, I uploaded the video to YouTube, as normal.

As a first time user, I loved how easy it was to use the Canva ecard creator. Having said that, I'd already created my own images for the card, and just had to upload them. Plus, the card/video editing process at Canva is far from sophisticated, and leaves the end result a bit "jerky".

 On the other hand, it may be something (like most apps and software) that reveals its more detailed tricks and features the more that a person actually uses it.

All in all...

All in all, I'd probably use it again, but maybe only for simpler projects and/or if a quick result was crucial.

Hope this helps in some way, anyway,  and have a lovely weekend.

More soon.
