Creating An Awesome Holiday Card

I realize it is only October but I’m sharing this early to get you thinking about the holidays and your traditions. For the last 7 or so years, I have sent out a holiday card and last year I didn’t. I kept thinking I would and I never got around to it. I put it off too long and then I ran out of time. Well, I’m totally ahead of the game this year and have already ordered my cards. I’ve partnered with MixBook, a super user-friendly website that helps to create photo cards, photo books, calendars and canvas prints. Find out how to make an awesome holiday card in just a few steps.


How to Create an Awesome Holiday Card

  1. Find your photos.
    You can get these professionally done or take them yourself. You could also ask a friend to take a few photos of you with your family.
  2. Select a card design.
  3. Place your order.
  4. Address your envelopes with to and from addresses.
  5. Add a nice note to the card or envelope.
  6. Send!

They offer some really cute designs that are really customizable. As a designer myself, I really like this option since it can save me time but the card will still look unique. I picked 5 of my favorite holiday cards from MixBook to make it even easier for you to choose. I picked the Glitter card because it went best with the images that I wanted to use. I love the other options also!


This year I decided to use a family photo that was taken recently and some photos of the kiddos playing in the house. I love that the kids are in their natural space and show their personalities. Our family photo was taken at the Bernardo Winery during my birthday celebration last month. I love the little missy’s happy spirit in this photo and we are all actually looking at the camera. I would like to get some professional photos of us taken again soon too but this works just fine for holiday cards.


Addressing, signing and stamping the envelopes is always my favorite part about sending cards out. I don’t always write a message on each card but I am going to this year. I think it makes it a little more personal when using a photo card.


I had an address stamp made about a year ago which I totally love. It makes it super simple and looks very nice. They have tons of options for address stamps on Etsy.


Which design do you like best? Happy card making!
