10 Of The Best Christmas Card Designs To Print & Send Immediately!
And how to find out where to send them
Printables are the way to go (I’m always stocked up on ink and card) so to Etsy I went! On the hunt for the best Christmas card designs to print, I was not disappointed by the offerings.
Christmas is fast approaching and confession time; I have not sent my Christmas cards yet. I haven’t even written them. It’s pedal to the metal time. When I realised the date at the weekend, I was in shock! So let’s get going.
Illustration and hand lettering are trending at the moment so I was on the hunt for those in particular, and I found some fantastic designs!
Illustrated cards are my absolute favourite, and I’m quite obsessed with printables too. Enter this rather beautiful Joy Bird Christmas card from the Etsy store OhMyCavalier created by the very talented Julianna Swaney!
Julianna Swaney created this Merry & Bright card too, and it is completely adorable. Why is it my favourite? I’m a crazy cat lady. That’s why.
Let It Snow, Happy Ho Ho Ho – BUY 3 FOR 8 USD!
The Etsy shop PeDe designs have an incredible offer on at the moment; you can buy three digital Christmas cards for $8, 5 for $12 or 8 for $16! That’s a crazy bargain; as you can print them again and again.
The golden hand lettered cards are absolutely beautiful. In the PeDe store you can find watercolour cards, gold hand lettered overlays and even scrapbook patterns! It’s a wonderful resource for crafters who know how to use photoshop.
Anyone else ha Elf in their top 2 favourite Christmas movies?! Number 1 is obviously Muppets Christmas Carol. It’s a beautiful life is an incredible Christmas movie but it makes me feel too much when I want to be entertained. And I don’t want to cry my eyes out and ruin my make up.
Brush script looks incredible, and watercolour is my favourite style of art, so I would love to receive this. I have a friend who is also obsessed with the Elf movie, and she would love to get this in the mail!
Hand lettering is one of the most relaxing hobbies I do. It’s so enjoyable, and the result could be something like this. If you practice enough, you could even open your Etsy store! I digress, chalkboard lettering is a level up from regular hand lettering, and I confess, I haven’t tried it! I plan on taking this course with the infamous Lily and Val in the new year. It’s the number 1 craft on my list of ‘New things to try in 2017’.
If you have family who appreciates artisans, creativity and traditional Christmas cards; this card is a beautiful marriage of the two.
Sending The Cards
Did you know, lots of people say that the reason they don’t do Christmas cards anymore is because they don’t have friends’ or family’s current address details and they haven’t got time to update their Christmas card lists.
White Pages address finder can help you track them down in moments, just type in the surname and the city where they last lived to get your search results. Make some labels by copying, and pasting or hand write the addresses and run like bejesus to the Post Office to send so they arrive before Christmas.
I have a card that has to make it’s way to Toronto and I am going to keep my fingers crossed for the entire week.
What do you think about sending printable Christmas cards? Adding glitter is a super simple DIY Idea you could use too.
