The Perfect Holiday Cards

The Holiday season is almost here! Are you ready?

It’s hard to believe the Holidays are right around the corner. My friends and family laugh at me because I start to get my list together and begin shopping early – like in July. It’s an easy thing to do with my favorite online stores– like Zazzle.

The Zazzle site is a gold mine! Luckily, I signed up for their email list and every week they let me know that there is a new discount on something. I took advantage of the 50% off all cards promotion and ordered my Christmas cards already.

Making personalized cards is my thing. Last year I had a photo of Steve and I made into a card. I find that sending a personalized message is important in this crazy world of commercialism that we live in. This year, I made two of my favorite photos into Holiday cards. The first was of our granddaughter looking out the window. It has always been one of my favorite shots.

The second was from one of my staging shoots. I have always loved the tree lights, the champagne and the festive look in this photo. I took advantage of the special and made this into a gorgeous Christmas card with a gold backing.

If you’re not into making a custom card there are plenty of ready made designs to choose from. You can add your signature, return address, order custom stamps, and much more! I took advantage of Zazzle’s incredible discounts to stock up on some everyday cards as well. I’m always reaching for a card to send a Thank You note or something. I’m one of those that loves to send notes through snail mail.

Now that I have my cards, I’ll print my address labels and put them in the mail right after Thanksgiving. It’s so rewarding to know that I have one more thing checked off my list!

    These cards are fantastic. I love that you can take your favorite photos and make them into a Christmas card. Such a personal touch.

    I’m one of those weird people who doesn’t get all swept up in the holiday card frenzy, but I do like sending people get well, and thank you cards. There is something so much more touching when you send someone a hand written note in a pretty card, instead of just an email. The cards you shared in your post are pretty though!

    I love photo Christmas cards. I will be ordering ours later than usually this year, but I will have the whole family together over Thanksgiving break so we will be shooting a family photo then. It is hard to get all six kids together with three of them out of state.
