I love to share free art that you can print at home, but today I am sharing a different kind of free printable: printable greeting cards.
These free printable cards are an easy way to stay in touch with those you love with six free designs including printable thank you cards, miss you cards, and just because cards.

We are incredibly lucky that we are all able to stay so connected from our own homes right now with text messages and video chats and Facebook and Zoom meetings. I can’t even imagine how much more difficult it would be to be confined at home without those things.
But even with all those avenues of connection, there is something different about sending something tangible to the people we love. It takes just a bit more thought and effort and care, but it feels so much more special than a simple text message.
Not to mention, it’s a great way to keep in touch with all of those people we can’t necessarily video chat with.
I usually take my boys to visit my 87 year old grandmother pretty regularly, but of course we aren’t able to see her in person right now. And yes, I still talk to her on the phone, but she doesn’t text or have an Internet connection so there’s no way to send photos or pictures the kids have drawn.
She lives alone and I know she has to be getting lonely stuck at home alone right now. So I thought she would probably really appreciate some happy mail.
So I designed a few notecards and printed them out. My kids wrote her messages and drew pictures inside and we popped them in the mail.
And I knew I had to share the cards with you guys. It’s just such a simple way to bring a little sunshine to someone’s day.
I also added a few thank you cards. There’s never a bad time to send a thank you card, but I thought it would be especially nice to send them to some of the people helping us get through the day right now. My kids’ teachers, our mailman, our neighbors.
There are six printable cards in total and each is formatted to be easily printed in two different sizes. The larger size is 5″x7″ inches or one full sheet of cardstock folded in half. The smaller cards are 3.5″x5″, the size of a half sheet of paper folded in half.
I’ve made these super easy to print and send. Simply print them on cardstock, cut along the gray lines, and fold in half.
You can buy packs of envelopes for mailing your cards – A7 envelopes are perfect for the larger cards, A1 envelopes work well for the smaller cards. Or there is also a good tutorial for making your own envelopes right here.
