Holiday Card Ideas

In keeping with the theme of Wednesday’s post, I wanted to share a few holiday card ideas. I like to choose my holiday cards early so I have plenty of time to write and mail them out before Christmas. When I was younger, I always used to help my mom send out the family Christmas cards and now that I live on my own, I really enjoying sending out my own set of cards. I have a list of people that I want to send them to and I always like to have a few extras on hand in case I’ve forgotten anyone. Last year I went with custom holiday cards from Zazzle, but this year I think I’m going to purchase a set like one of the options above. If you want to participate in a holiday card exchange, Tracy and Jessica are organizing one and today is the last day to sign up!

01. Deck the Halls Paper Chains 02. Snow, Ivory 03. Merry Christmas Printable Card 04. Happy Holidays from New York 05. Snow, Snow, Snow 06. Joy to the Letterer 07. Mr. Boddington’s Studio Happy Holidays 08. Holly Wreath Evergreen 09. Peace on Earth Angel 10. Winter Bouquet 11. Ode to Joie- Gold 12. Pine Cones Banner 13. Gold Foil Peace Joy Love

Tell me: Do you send out holiday cards?

P. S. Minted also has tons of options if you’re looking to do custom cards and right now they’re doing 15% off all holiday cards with the code HAPPYHOL15.

    This year I made my own cards again – my mom has an amazing stamp set up so I did about 60 cards in 8 different designs. It was super fun and I love how they turned out, but man did it ever take a long time!

  3. I adore the cards you sent last year. How fun! But, I also love the designs you chose for this year.
    I love the sentimentality of cards. We have become so e-mail efficient that the process of mailing snail mail seems so novel and almost art-like now.
    The card exchange sounds like a lot of fun! I just emailed to participate myself! =)

    I love buying christmas cards. I think I accidentally ended up with three boxes for this year… I really like 11, possibly because it reminds me of the J.Crew tee shirts.

    Oh. it is J.Crew. There you go.

      You’ve got a good eye because #11 is one of the cards from the J.Crew x Paperless Post collab!
