The holiday season may still be a few months away, but it’s never too early to plan for this busy time of year.
One tradition that’s always popular with friends, family and loved ones is the exchange of Christmas cards. This year, why not take your holiday greetings to a new level with picture Christmas cards that have a personal touch?
In this article, we explore five unique and inspiring ideas to make your picture Christmas cards stand out and create a lasting impression when the holiday season arrives.
Create a photo collage card
A photo collage is one of the most popular options for picture Christmas cards. All you need is several images that capture special moments with your family or friends, scissors, glue, card, and creativity.
You can arrange the photos in any shape – for example, a tree, snowman, or wreath – and then write a personalised message on the back. You could even include a winter quote.
Turn your photos into pop-up cards
Pop-up cards have been around for centuries, but they remain one of the most fun ways to send a greetings card.
You can create 3D scenes with picture Christmas cards that pop up when opened. Simply cut out shapes from your chosen photos and use folded card tabs to attach them to your card for an easy and impactful finish.
Create custom gift tags
Thanks to picture Christmas cards, gift tags don’t have to be boring. Instead of buying generic gift tags from stores this year, why not customise them using pictures from your collection?
Print small copies onto adhesive paper so they can easily stick onto packages. For extra flair, you could add ribbons that co-ordinate with your wrapping paper.
Design personalised ornaments
If you’re looking for something more permanent than a regular greeting card, why not try making personalised ornaments?
Simply print copies of whatever image(s) you want onto thin cardboard, or even shrink plastic. Cut them out into round shapes, make a hanging hole, then thread some string through and knot it securely. These festive decorations are perfect for the Christmas tree or as a unique gift.
Recreate classic holiday scenes
Finally, another fun idea for using picture Christmas cards would be recreating classic holiday scenes, such as Santa Claus riding his sleigh across rooftops or snowmen enjoying themselves. The possibilities are endless here – you just need a little imagination and a few props.
The holiday season is a time to come together, spread joy, and create cherished memories with our loved ones. With these five ideas, you can elevate your Christmas cards to heartfelt works of art that leave a lasting impact. Whether you’re organising a themed photo shoot, designing handmade ornaments, or incorporating personalised touches, you can have fun creating something that will be cherished for years to come.
