In just a few short weeks we will officially kick off the holiday season with trick-o-treating and all the haunted houses we can handle then it’s off to the holiday races! So, before you get too consumed with baking cookies and doing your holiday shopping get your holiday cards created and ready to send out so you can be on top of the game and ahead of the curve!

Since it’s still October you may have some Christmas cobwebs blocking your festive creativity so we have taken care of all the inspiration for you by teaming up with online stationery design company, Basic Invite, who is bringing us all the Christmas card ideas you’ll need to get your cards designed, ordered, and out the door asap!

Upload a Photo
Choosing a photo holiday card design is an especially good idea if you live far away from family and friends or if you have had a too busy of a year to catch up as often as you would have liked. Anyone who opens up a card to familiar faces will be ecstatic to see how old the kids are and how happy everyone looks. Another photo design option is a collage. This way you can choose a few of your favorite moments from the past year to display or create a timeline with your photos!

Add Gold, Silver, or Rose Gold Foil
Foil is always a good idea! Typically people associate the holidays with a bit of sparkle and shine so the addition of gold, silver, or rose gold foil to your holiday cards will not go unnoticed! Gold and silver are a classic choice, but rose gold foil is so gorgeous and can add an element of uniqueness which is sure to get displayed proudly on the mantel.

Think Outside of the Box
Traditional holiday greeting cards are a go to choice, but if you want your Christmas card to stand out try thinking outside of the box this year. Choose a fun and informal design and jazz it up using bright colors and a fun font rather than sticking to the typical red and green with a fancy font. Pair your modern card with a colored peel and seal envelope so it stands out from the start!
