Christmas Card Ideas

Posted on

This was our Christmas card in 2010.

      We got such a great response on them.   I had just started seeing “photo booths” popping up at parties and wedding where people get their photos taken with props and loved the frames. My original idea was to get everyone in the family a frame and do a group photo. Well then we did family photos and no one would look the same way and smile at the same time so I thought why not do them each at different times. So without them knowing what They were doing I asked them to stand in the same place and “fame yourself”. I love how they each have their own take on what that means. My son instantly put it around his neck. I took a photo then told him what I ment and took 30 or so more shots. Then when editing the card on photo shop I just had to use the one that was his personality.  The one perfect shot he had posed for himself.

I then uploaded the image to Snapfish and printed them for 6 cents each for a 4×6 print. You can’t beat that!! I had bought cards from Hallmark at the end of the season the year before so I just stuck them on. But could have Printed (Marry Christmas from “our name” 2010) just as easily.


The next year we had fun with Christmas lights.


I hope this inspires someone and if you have any ideas for our cards this year I need help.


About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
