I know it’s only October, but Christmas always seems to sneak up on me. I love Christmas cards and I spend hours online searching multiple sites for just the right cards. I spend an equal amount of time trying to stage some crazy photos of my kids (which never come out the way I imagine). Then by the time I order my cards, address the envelopes, and finally mail them, I’m usually hoping they’ll show up on December 23rd or 24th instead of the 26th.
This year I’m vowing to get my cards out early. I’m going to make things a little easier on myself by using pictures we already have instead of trying to stage some weird holiday themed photo that won’t come out quite right anyway. I love the idea of keeping our family and friends up on what we’ve been doing this year, so I’m thinking of using pictures of the kids on some of our many adventures… maybe at the Morton Arboretum, Millennium Park, and the Big Monster Door.
I’m also using Tiny Prints to order my holiday cards. Tiny Prints has a huge selection of cards to choose from, so I won’t have to hop around from site to site looking for the perfect cards.
These Light Up Christmas cards are really cute. I love the font and the hand-drawn look of the ornaments; perfect for a photo of little kids. I love the price too – they’re as little as 69 cents a card!
This Very Merry Christmas card is the perfect simple but eye-catching design. I like that the photo is the main focus of the card.
I love the rounded edges on the Retro Wishes card. I like how the picture takes up the entire card too.
I love this Harmonious Rainbow card because of the unique shape and colors. I know I always have a hard time figuring out how to display all our holiday cards and this one can just be tossed onto the tree. What a great idea!
If I have a hard time picking just a couple photos I like I could get something like the Merry Happy Holiday card.
But I think maybe my favorite might be the Happy Moments card – lots of pictures and I love the tri-fold format.
