10 Creative Christmas Card Ideas

Are you the type who’s done with your Christmas cards… signed, stamped, and mailed before Thanksgiving? Some years I am, but some years I get stuck on the idea – cute, without the cheese, fun but not dorky, making sure everyone looks somewhat sane. Not always an easy task with kids, dogs, and a family in tow.

So I went hunting this year for some crazy awesome, creative, fabulous ideas for our Christmas card. And I found so many! Internet – seriously, you are a genius. Here are my top picks. Steal one for your own family if you’re stuck, I’m sure they won’t mind.

Top photo is a woodcut/burned out Christmas card. See the entire line right here. I love the concept and want to give it a go with my own wood burner.

Make copies of your faces… very large. I am in love with this idea!

Antlers drawn on a chalkboard are so cute.

A photo strip Christmas card with candy included!

Dressing up a pet is always a creative win in my book. Plus this idea of you can buy in print, right here

Not feeling up to smiling in the late fall leaves this year. Forgo the photo entirely and have a stash of custom illustrated Christmas cards whipped up.

Take a cue from John and Yoko and stand behind a big statement. This would be a fun idea to do year after year with the latest family or world happenings.

Create a family snowflake – okay this might be a little on the cheesy side, but could be so cute!

Take a sweet and simple pose with colorful lights.

Lots of fun photos with big printed letters – the kids would get a kick out of doing this in a photo booth this year!

After all this fun card searching we did actually end up frolicking in the leaves for a very traditional Christmas photo this year. I’ll show you a little peek next week. xoxo
