2017 Holiday Cards

We're a week away from Thanksgiving and I have holiday cards on my mind already! Below are a handful of the customizable cards available in my Etsy shop or available as custom orders. I love trying out different textures and backgrounds. Some of my favorites end up surprising me, like that fun knitted sweater texture! 

I will be accepting orders for custom holiday cards through Friday, December 15th. After that my family will be traveling to spend our Winter Break in California. I can set up ANY of the files I create to be printed anywhere; whether you plan to print with a local print shop, VistaPrint, OvernightPrints, or even print on your home printer. Just let me know so I can set up the files correctly. If you'd like a design on the back of your holiday card, let me know. If you mention this blog post, I'll create a design for the back at NO extra charge!

Click on any of these photos to link to the listing on Etsy if it's available there. 

This was our holiday card a couple of years ago, and I still swoon a little bit over my boys so little and so cute in their matching PJs. We are doing Santa photos like this again (that's me in the Santa suit!), and again my boys want to wear matching PJs. This card is available in your choice of 4 chalkboard background colors. We can use which ever coordinates best with your family photo.

This is such a fun design with the polaroid photos on top of a faux wood background. Choose a layout with 4, 5, or 6 photos and customize the caption at the bottom of each one, or you can leave them blank. Also choose between a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays greeting.

This is the holiday card we mailed to our friends and family last year. The selfie pose was my oldest son's idea and that's me in the Santa suit! I LOVE how it turned out. Choose from four different colors for the faux knitted background. 

I still love a faux chalkboard background, and a smiling face just makes it even better. Choose between four different color schemes.

This is my most popular design and I still love it. I will update the listing to show a couple of color options for the background and a couple of script font options too. 

I love this knitted sweater background! Showcase a handful of family photos and choose from 3 background colors.

This card features faux watercolor holly leaves and pine needles on background that has a faint wood grain. Showcases one family photo or I can do a collage of photos that fill the same space.

This was such a fun design that I did for my sister and brother-in-law. The comic book theme works with 6 photos and all of the text is customizable. This one is only available as a custom order. Shoot me an email to talk about placing an order.

I love a watercolor background! This custom card can be done as a collage with four photos like pictured, or with just one square image of your family. Choose from four different background colors too.

If you love any one of the designs in my Etsy shop, but you'd like to make changes to the layout, colors, fonts, or create a completely custom holiday card for your family, please shoot me an email and we can talk pricing. 

Cheers!

New Holiday Cards

It's a little later than I wanted, but I managed to get a few new holiday cards designs and added to my Etsy shop this past week.

I'll be accepting orders for holiday cards (whether custom or in my Etsy shop) thru Sunday, December 20th. After the 20th, I will deactivate holiday card listings in my shop and spending the week of Christmas with my family.

All of these designs have a couple of options when it comes to either a text color or a background color. Clicking on an image will take you to its listing in my shop. 

Jackie & Michael's Holiday Card - 2014

My sister and her fiancé, Michael wanted to send out a holiday card that shared a bit about the fun stuff they did in 2014. The biggest event was that they got engaged!! We used the polaroid photo collage that I used for my family's 2012 holiday card and made it work for their images.

As you can see, they love to be active and outside.

Congrats little sister!! Can't wait to share your wedding invitations too!

Our Holiday Card - 2012

2012 was kind of a crazy year for us. We were acclimating to living in a new state (one with real winter!) and we were traveling like mad knowing that the following year our son would be starting school. We wanted our holiday card to showcase all of the fun trips we took and a collage of polaroid photos was our final result. 

You can barely see the passport stamps I added to the edges here.

I printed these with VistaPrint and I was really happy with how the turned out.
