Depends.

Birthday cards that are meaningful to me (from my husband, kids, mother etc) is kept.
Mazel tov cards I don’t keep. Those are usually very generic.

I keep them in a folder in my files box.

If it's a significant celebration, like a new baby or a Bar Mitzvah I stick them in an album.

If its stam birthday cards, in theory I throw them out a few weeks later, but in practice they often hang around in odd corners. Then when my mother was niftar, I was so glad to find I still had the past few years of birthday cards from her. They suddenly became very precious.

My mother was a kindergarten teacher, and she always tore the back off and took the pictures in for the children to use.

I keep most of them on a shelf in my living room, especially if they have pretty designs

I like the idea of putting significant event cards into album. I also like saving for sentimental reasons. I just find they take up so much space!
It's also true that some generic ones may not need to be saved.
I once tried photographing a bunch and discarding the originals. But I realized the kids just don't appreciate/enjoy them the same at all. Like almost not kidai.
So I'm still undecided. In the mean time I have a whole pile of them sitting on my table from my post spring cleaning......
