How to deal with no acknowledgment of greeting cards

I read the answers in this similar thread, but it's more than a few years old. For the people who put in effort to making greeting cards and mailing them to people, but then get no responses at all, how do you deal? As someone who loves arts and crafts, I make my own Christmas cards and send them in the mail. Each one takes about 20 min to make. In the past, most recipients have all loved them and responded either with a quick text of "Got your card, thanks!" or even email a thanks.

Recently I gave cards to my current supervisors at work, and have gotten zero acknowledgment. I was in a meeting w/ them earlier too. Nothing. This happened with a few other long-distance colleagues, who didn't mention the card at all unless I asked if they received it. (In which case they go, "Oh yeah, that was nice.")

I know it's sort of silly to expect a response at all. You're not supposed to expect anything in return for gifts, right? But I can't help but feel frustrated, especially since I took the time to put the card together and everything.
