Free Printable “Yo” Mini Card + SVG Cut File

Free Printable "Yo" Mini Card + SVG Cut File | Paper Crave

I have to admit that I’m not much for formalities and, while I can appreciate a more formal greeting or sentiment, I’m pretty casual with my own friends and family. Having said that, would I send this card to my grandmother? Probably not. But I think that it would be a hit with my friends, especially those who were fans of “Friends”. What can I say? Joey Tribbiani has kind of been my muse lately.

You can download the “Yo” mini card (4″ x 3″) below, and I’ve also provided an outline version if you want to take markers – I used Sharpie Metallic Markers, and I think the result it pretty darn cool – or colored pencils or what have you and color in the “yo” to make it your own.

Six Squirrel & Acorn-Themed Cards

It may not officially be fall quite yet, but I’m already starting to see signs of the changing seasons. The very first leaves are starting to fall from the trees and, during the past two weeks, I’ve spotted more than a few squirrels stocking up on acorns in preparation for colder days and nights.

In celebration of the coming season, I’ve rounded up six sweet, squirrel and acorn-themed cards that will help get you in the mood for gorgeous leaves, apples, pumpkins, and the cool, crisp air that I look forward to every year.
