The holidays are everyone’s busiest time as there may still be work and business-related assignments and calls and at the same time, you need to show all your loved ones how dearly you care for them. While presents and wonderful dinners are a great way to show your affection, oftentimes you can’t include everyone on this list.
Holiday cards are a thoughtful acknowledgment for friends, colleagues, relatives, and other people you know who you may or may not meet over the holidays. Taking some time to custom design or choose gorgeous holiday cards to send this season is not a gesture that will be forgotten by the lovely people you know.
A Recipe For Success
Recipe holiday cards are incredibly trendy, they may feature a cute picture of you and your family and a recipe for the holiday in question. If you’re sending a Christmas recipe card for example you’ll have the recipe for a much-loved dish like a pot roast. You can also choose to customize these with your grandmother’s favorite apple pie recipe if you wish to make it more unique. Not to mention you can have cocktail recipes instead of food items if you feel that might be more appreciated by adults over the holiday season.
Holiday candy-like peppermint gives immediate vibes of festivity. Design your holiday cards around that concept and use your favorite candy to do all the talking. Not to mention the bright colors will make your card immediately stand out from everyone’s pile of mail.
A Seasonal Snow Globe
As the colder months are tiptoeing closer, you may want to send out snow globe-inspired cards that capture the spirit of the season. Not to mention snow globes can have beach scenes, glitter flakes instead of snow, and so forth so make the design your own.
The Old Kraft Effect
Kraft paper is a classic for many uses but you can use it as the perfect holiday card as well. Add some twine, dried leaves, or a touch of winter greens for a rustic, outdoorsy, vintage effect. If you are going to be traveling during the holidays and are sending your cards well ahead of time you can even add fake retro stamps for aesthetics. Consider registering your home or apartment on vacation rental software so you can earn money while you are away as a bonus.
Everyone loves plaid borders and trench coat designs reminiscent of Burberry. Incorporate that aesthetic into your holiday card selection with a glamorous, formal photograph of you and your nearest ones. Decorate further with some festive bows or ribbons or add a rustic vibe with string or a pine cone cardboard cutout.
Holidays are all about the family and loved ones getting together and sharing stories and maybe even some wisdom. Quotes are a great holiday card concept because you can use your favorite ones and brighten up someone’s day. You can use more than one or even have paper inside the card for that purpose. Quotes-oriented holiday cards are also more practical and memorable and they may end up framed in someone’s house because they are not time-specific as many seasonal cards can be.
Using embossed cards with metallic tints in gold or rose gold is an incredibly pleasing design. Not to mention it looks expensive and makes the receiver feel you have put both effort and money into sending them a card. Use season-specific accents like pine needles, dried leaves, or even snowmen!
Work And Play
Using the theme of your line of work for holiday cards has also been increasingly popular for a few years. You can design a holiday card around your profession for example having medical Christmas cards. This type of card is especially ideal when you will be sending cards to your workplace buddies, colleagues, and acquaintances. Furthermore, you can use memes or jokes surrounding your profession as cover art such as Santa wearing scrubs.
Micro Foliage And Florals
Using small elements of florals and foliage is a very festive holiday card design. You can opt for the traditional red and green color scheme or any colors you wish. Choosing the greens and the flowers is also meant to be an entirely personal choice as you should choose ones that fill you with joy. If you’re something of a gardener or plants enthusiast at heart, this is going to be the holiday card of your dreams to share your passion with the ones you love and value in your life.
