Holiday Cards

November 17, 2017

Holiday cards season!!! I LOVE this time of the year, not only for all the joy of the holidays, but because you get presents in your mail almost every day! I am a stationery LOVER and I always look forward to browsing online for my favorite cards. And it’s so much fun to see what your friends and family pick out too!

I always love a minimalist look for a holiday card. I want the photo to be what you see and focus on, not all the extra bedazzle going on on some cards. But I’m venturing out of my safe place a little bit this year, as I’m really loving florals on the cards!! Just a simple piece of holly or mistletoe is really beautiful and peaceful to me this year. I think it adds a nice touch. However, I’ll always be drawn to a simple “Merry Christmas” script though!

Here are 9 of my favorite holiday card designs!


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9


Looking at this board, I obviously am in a black and white phase of my life right now! But the deep red pops of color on a few of those cards is very lovely to me.

I think my fave is #1! It’s modern, simple, and with a little extra fun. I’m loving it! And #2 is way out of left field for me, but for some reason I really like the big monogram letter of your last name. So cool! #4 and #6 are just lovely and peaceful to me. Then the rest are all very plain black and white, but I love that simple minimalist look! Let the photo do all the talking!

Plus what’s faaaabulous about these, is that all of them come with different colors you could choose. I always do just red or black or white, but there are blues, greens, pinks, grays, just about any color you could want! So if you like a design you can always change the colors up. Moreover, if you’d rather it say a different phrase, there are options for that too! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Joy, Happy New Year, etc. Tons of options! Couldn’t be easier to customize and find EXACTLY what you want.

As far as where to browse for cards,  I LOVE Minted the most. The best quality, so many options, and so easy. It’s like Etsy for cards. They are all independent artist who have their designs on there. So neat! They also have free recipient addressing which is UNBELIEVEABLE. Such a time saver and it matches your card so it’s really beautiful. Tiny Prints has this now too! This year, Minted added an option to text your photo in and a Minted designer will choose 5 designs that match your photo and text them back to you! I did it and I really loved 2 of the 5 they sent me. Kind of neat to see what others pick! Read more about texting a photo here.

This totally gets me in the holiday spirit! I love seeing everyone’s family photos right now, then I’m so excited to see it again on a card!

Hope this helps you narrow down the vast sea of cards!!! Which is your favorite?!
