Holiday cards have been a tradition in our family since we turned a late holiday card into a combination “Happy New Year” and birth announcement for our first daughter five years ago (I can’t believe she’ll be five this week!). Since then, I’ve partnered with Basic Invite to offer easy, beautiful and customizable cards for the holidays (and other occasions).

I look for a few things in a holiday card design. First, I’m a huge fan of turning holiday cards into “year in review” cards, which is one of the reasons I love Basic Invite. They have the option to add text, additional photos or both to the back of any card design, so it’s easy to share highlights from your year with friends and family (I LOVE getting cards with this personal touch—it’s so much fun to sit down and read holiday newsletters and highlights).
I also like designs that are clean with attractive fonts.
So let’s take a look at some of my favorite designs from Basic Invite this year—ranging from a single photo to a whole set of favorites.
All of the photos below are my own.
1. Modern Photo Collage Christmas Cards
This holiday card keeps it simple and lets you show off a few favorite images. Get it here.
2. Yearbook Photos Holiday Cards
3. Big Joy Foil Photo Holiday Cards
Here’s another design that will give you a chance to show off a few favorite photos—whether it’s close ups of each kid or highlights from the year. Get it here.
4. Editorial Photo Holiday Cards
I may be a bit biased toward “Joy” because it’s my daughter’s middle name, but I also like the simplicity of this card, along with the fact that it will work well with any horizontal image—you don’t have to worry about the text falling just right across the image. Get it here.
5. Sparkling Holiday Cards
Manage Your Address Book
Basic Invite makes it easy to manage your address book—you can share a link with friends and family, and they can enter or update their own information for you, and it’s easy to import addresses that you already have. They offer automatic address printing from your address book, which is an amazing time saver during the busy holiday season.
If you create a link to collect addresses, be sure to let me know. I’d love to see how your cards turn out!
