Christmas Card Inspiration for 2010

by Donna on October 7, 2010

Hopefully you were able to take some time last week to gather your addresses and write up your Christmas card list. If you’re really on top of things you’ve scheduled your appointment for a family portrait (if that’s something you usually do).

Now comes the FUN part! What kind of cards are you going to send? There are endless possibilities out there and I’m sure I’m just barely scratching the surface with these resources. In the past we’ve sent out Traditional cards, photo cards and I’ve designed photo cards myself the last few years. I’m not certain what we’ll choose this year but the ideas below sure got my creative juices flowing!


Photo Cards


One of the most popular and one of the easiest way to make Christmas Cards. There are many sites that offer great Photo Card designs. My top two are Shutterfly.com and Dayspring

Shutterfly is my “go-to” site when I need a photo book, personalized photo cards or photo gifts. I’ve always been happy with their prices and quality.They often run fantastic promotions and the site is simple to navigate.


Another site that I stumbled upon last year that I am loving is Dayspring‘s Studio Dayspring Site. Dayspring has put together some amazing inspirational cards that you can personalize with your family’s photos.

Also Dayspring’s (in)courage.me website is an official sponsor for The Relevant Conference that I will be attending in 3 weeks! So be sure to stop over at (In)courage and share the love!

Traditional Christmas Cards


Traditional Christmas Cards are still very popular and there are so many beautiful and meaningful cards that you can send out

There are some beautiful cards over at Dayspring:


I also LOVE letterpress cards, they are so classy and timeless. There’s just something beautiful about a handpressed card.

I found this seller on Etsy, and her cards are beautiful!

Unique Cards / Other Ideas


This was one of my favorite unique cards. It would be a great card to send to a grandparent of family member who does not live close by.

Baked Goods

I love to bake, especially around the holidays and giving baked goods is one of my favorite ways to share at Christmas. Simply adding a pretty ribbon and label or tag is a great way to send your best wishes to someone.
