Flat Stationery Cards

A staple of the holiday season, flat stationery cards are versatile, simple, and decidedly elegant ways to spread Christmas cheer or well-wishes on Hanukkah, New Years, and year-round. Shutterfly's card designs are playful, fun, and always easy to make your own. This year, send personalized holiday greetings with your photos and wishes in a stylish, attention-getting card.

Cute, Flat, 5x7 Christmas Cards

There are a host of reasons flat Christmas cards are so popular, and one is their simplicity. Essentially, you have your front and back of card; the front being, of course, the presentation side—the side your family and friends will see first when, with anticipation, they open the envelope, and the side they'll display on their mantel, corkboard, or elsewhere in their homes. Flat stationery cards have no folding parts, they're sturdy in design and construction, and they display exceptionally well on their own or alongside other Christmas or holiday cards. The back, meanwhile, allows you to add additional information or photos (the 'B' side to the front's 'A' side, if you will), and to even add a handwritten note if you'd like.

Creative Templates For Flat Holiday Cards

Shutterfly has design options galore for Christmas, holiday, Hanukkah, and New Years cards—templates for one photo or five; templates featuring contemporary, modern, and rustic styles; and an array of design templates displaying various holiday greetings and in an assortment of font styles. Explore these stylish designs as examples to whet your creative impulses and, when you find one that excites you, simply select it and customize it to your liking. Naturally, you'll want to upload a recent, compelling photo of you and your family members. Alternately, you may wish to create a dog-related Christmas card. Whatever your impulse, you'll find a flat stationery card template to match.

Customize Your Flat Christmas or Holiday Card

Once you've uploaded your photo (or photos), it's time to experiment with color choices, fonts, special trims, and back of card options. You can make the process fast or exacting—it's really up to you. Card sizes range from 4x5, 4x8, 5x5, 5x7, to 6x8 and paper options include photo paper, Standard Smooth Cardstock, Signature Smooth Cardstock, Pearl Shimmer Cardstock, Personalized Foil Cardstock, and our luxe, Double-Thick Cardstock. Each of these offers distinct advantages and design capabilities, depending on the type of card you're making. Additionally, you may want to add gold, iridescent, or rose gold foil or foil stamping to your card to give it a luxury appeal.

What To Write On Your Flat Holiday Cards

When working with flat stationery cards, it's common practice to keep your personalized messages relatively brief. This allows your photo and design choices to speak for themselves and to carry the emotional weight of the card. Adding your family name or perhaps the first names of each member of your family, and even including your pets' names, is a great choice. Then, on the back of the card, you might take the opportunity to add more information—traveled-to destinations, context about funny photos, or, say, developments in anyone's life over the past year. Ultimately, you should feel free to make a card that expresses your personality and captures the essence of your connection with the people close to you
