The sending of cards is a quintessential start to the holiday season. You eagerly anticipate that first card arriving in your mailbox, checking out the latest photo from your friends and family members and reading about their latest life adventures. You want to be sure that you don't miss out on the spirit of the season, so gear up and start designing your own holiday or Christmas card.
No matter if you are religious or not, whether you celebrate Christmas or Hannukah, whether your kids believe in Santa or not, you can still design a great holiday card that sends your good wishes and seasons greetings to your loved ones far and near. From classic and understated designs to silly ones filled with Christmas lights and cheer, thousands of holiday and Christmas card designs are at the touch of your fingertips.
There are three main parts to picking out and designing your holiday card. The first involves photos. Though they might see you plastered all over Facebook or Instagram, your loved ones still want a photo of you to hang on their refrigerator. For this reason, you should design a card that features at least one photo of you/your family. The second part involves choosing the theme of the card. Do you want silly and fun or do you want spiritual and respectful? Choose a theme that fits your personality and reflects the tone that you want to convey with the card. The third part is choosing the type and weight of card to send. Glossy cards show off your photos but they don't have as polished a look to them, instead just looking like a photo card. You can choose a heavier cardstock card, though the photos might not be as bright. There are also foil embossed cards if you want something fancier.
Whatever you choose, design a holiday or Christmas card that represents who you are and showcases your growth and change from the previous season. No matter what you send, your friends and family members will appreciate the thought.
