*I’m working with Snapfish to let everyone know how easy it is to make the perfect family holiday card.
Like it or not, it is that time of the year. November symbolizes a time where as a mom I must create the perfect family holiday card to send out to family and friends.
Many will set up photo shots months in advance. As a mom though, I have many photos of my kids throughout the year. I usually tend to use the photos what we have from the past year. I mean why re-create the wheel. Plus, adding another fee to the cost of a family card to me isn’t necessary.
So, here is the 5 easy steps I utilize to make the perfect family holiday card online.
Check them out below…
1. Sort through the year’s photos.
Again, no sense in taking more family photos if you already have a amassed a ton over the past year. So now is the time to got through those photos for your family holiday card.

See I usually narrow it down to no more than 5 – 7 choosing both horizontal or vertical photos as card photo layouts usually vary between the two.
2. Check out online card options.
Next, I check some of the different online holiday cards sites. I scope out the deals, as well as the card designs.
This year, I was more than pleasantly surprised at how convenient SnapFish is for creating a family holiday card. Not only were their holiday card options abundant, but they were gorgeous in my humble opinion. Plus, they now offer Foil-Stamped Holiday Cards! They also allow for free return address printing on the back of the card envelopes with Foil-Stamped Cards.
See these budget-friendly beauties will shine and shimmer their way onto fridges all season long. These include Floral, Classic, Confetti, Dots, Sparkles, Brushstrokes, and even more design options available.
And their deals are quite budget-friendly, as well. Right now, they are offering 40% OFF for all CONFESSIONS READERS with the promo code JANINE40.
3. Try out a at least two different card layouts.
So, now that you have chosen a place to make your perfect holiday card. Next, I recommend checking out the different holiday card selections. Try a few out with your family photo selections.
You can easily upload your family pictures from your device, Facebook, Instagram or Snapfish album.
Also, if possible now is the time to play around on SnapFish’s site. See you can also browse color options, photo layout options for your card choice and even browse more card designs.
You can also even include a yearly family update and/or additional photos on the back.
This really is a wonderful way to send holiday cheer to friends and family. So have fun and be creative.
4. Narrow down your card layout options.
Once you have had some fun playing with a few different photo layout options, it is now time to get serious. It is now that you will want to narrow down the family holiday cards that you mocked up.
My rule of thumb is get your selections down to two different holiday card layouts.
