How to Create Stress-Free, Customizable Holiday Cards

It’s Not Too late!

Any other last minute moms out there like me? I love all the Pinterest-worthy holiday fun as much as the next person but I typically end up squeezing it all in at the end! I always have tons of festive fun all planned out but life happens and it’s always a rush to get it done.  I was determined to start a little earlier with all my Christmas prep though this year and that included getting our Christmas cards from Basic Invite and getting them sent out ASAP! With completely custom, quality cards and amazing service, I knew I’d find just what I wanted and be able to get at least something checked off my to-do list and enjoy the rest of the holiday season! 

Snail Mail Love 

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season has always been receiving Christmas cards.  Aside from all the Amazon packages, it’s the best part about getting the mail each day! I love checking to see which family members or friends have sent one and then getting to display them in our home. I still remember the little red, wooden sleigh we kept them all in as I was growing up. Such fond memories! Now, we get to include our daughter in on the fun and she loves getting to help open them and see people she recognizes on the holiday cards inside. It’s the best! I love displaying them as part of our Christmas decor. 

It is because I love receiving holiday cards so much, that I also enjoy sending them! I hope seeing a few snapshots of our little family will brighten our loved ones Christmas seasons when they open our cards as much as their cards bring me and my family joy. The time, thought and love that goes along with a good old fashioned piece of snail mail embodies all that this season is really about. So, if you are on the fence about if sending Christmas cards is really worth it, I think you already know what my answer will be! Hint: YES! DO IT!

Truly Custom 

Ok, I’ve convinced you to to order Christmas cards, now where to get them?? This is the first year that I’ve gotten our cards from Basic Invite and they did not disappoint! In fact, I was totally impressed! I’ll admit that I never really thought much about where we got our cards before. Instead, I’ve usually just opted for the fastest and cheapest option. They’ve all been fine, but this year I wanted to do something different. 

Basic Invite isn’t really all that basic. Instead, they help you to create a totally custom Christmas or holiday card that suits your individual needs. With over 180 color options, pick the one that works perfectly with your holiday photos! In years past, I’ve had to pick my second or third choice of card option because you couldn’t read the font over the colors of the photo I used. Not a problem this year! In addition to choosing the right color of font, Basic Invite lets you move text boxes around, add foil, add additional photos to your cards,  and more. Plus, you can instantly view a preview of your card online or request a sample to be sent to you. With so many options, you’ll be able to create your most amazing Christmas card yet!

Let Them Do The Work 

With so many things to do on your holiday to-do list, creating an amazing Christmas card shouldn’t be a hassle. Thankfully, Basic Invite has come up with a way to make Christmas cards even better by doing the work for you! With free address collecting and printing, sending your holiday cards has never been easier. But wait, it get’s better! Are you really in a pinch for time? Then let Basic Invite mail your cards for you too! How cool is that? They’ve really thought of everything when it comes to sending your cards and with beautiful designs, printing on high-quality card stock, your Christmas cards will be a holiday dream come true! 

Happy Holidays!

I am so happy to have checked my Christmas Cards off my holiday to-do list thanks to Basic Invite. I’m in love with how they turned out and I can’t wait for all our family and friends to receive them.  Now I can enjoy the rest of this wonderful season  I’m so glad we have this beautiful Christmas card to look back on year after year! I hope you have a wonderful holiday celebrating with all your loved ones! xo Holly
