Can I do any cardio while I am working on a bulking phase? Or will it just make it a lot harder to get results?

Depends why you want to do cardio. It'll hinder your size gains and probably your strength gains. During a bulk I'd say stay away from cardio except of course if you are doing cardio for its actual cardiovascular benefits. Don't think that doing cardio while bulking will make you more "cut" really...

I meant cardio for the purpose of cardivascular exercise...family history of heart disease so I like to try to keep up some cardio exercises...

Then go ahead and do cardio but just eat more calories to make up for it. You should be fine.

I'd suggest 20 min cardio sessions that are intense enough to get you into the desired heartrate. then you get the benefits, without using too many calories.
