With the Holiday season in full swing, I thought it would be appropriate to continue my series on DIY print design with something infused with the Holiday spirit. Custom Christmas cards are very popular item this time of year, going back many years. You can often purchase some templates from big retail stores like Target or Walmart that allow you to insert a photo of your own, or just have interesting designs so you can send out a nice, consistent version of your card to everyone. However, if you really want to customize the entire card, the online printing services out there can offer you a limitless level of control over your entire design. You can be guaranteed that no one else in your family will be sending out the same cards as you! Here are some of my favorite designs I found from around the web for inspiration:
This one has a snowflake and ribbon attached with a button, giving off a really nice hand-made appearance.
How about a card with an awesome snow globe on it!? Really love how this card came out.
I love anything interactive, so this card that lets you fold it into a Christmas tree is really impressive!
I like the cut out snowflake effect and the candy cane style bow tying this card up.
If you have family that likes to display all the cards they get, this one is easy to stand up anywhere.
This rotating snowman card is another one that appeals to my interactive side.
So there you have it, perhaps this has sparked some good ideas for you to make your own cards if you wish next year, and I hope you have a Happy Holiday!
