DIY Christmas Card Ideas

There are many different sources from which artists and designers of all skill levels can draw inspiration. Whether you want to send a traditional card with a sweet holiday photo of your family, or a funny photo Christmas card designed with candid moments, your DIY Christmas card will stand out when you upload your own design. Your one-of-a-kind Christmas card will wow your friends and family and will live on as a special keepsake loved ones will treasure for years to come. Consider some of these novel ideas when planning your Christmas and DIY holiday cards this year:

  • Drawing from historic sources, such as Victorian Christmas images or rustic pioneer celebrations
  • An expressive color palette that goes beyond the standard red, green, and white often associated with Christmas
  • Incorporating imagery from your regional landscape – coastlines, desert canyons, and cities all experience Christmas in their own beautiful ways
  • Make animals or nature the centerpiece of your holiday art
  • Make art together with siblings, children, and other family members to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece

Once your art has been completed, it will need to be digitized. If you created your image using computer software then simply save the file before uploading it into our card design template. If you made a physical work of art, it will need to be scanned or carefully photographed. For optimal printed results, a resolution of 300 dpi is recommended. After your art has been digitized, follow the on-screen prompts to add the image to the card template you have selected.

How To Make Custom Christmas Cards

Bring your vision to life by uploading your own design to create your perfect custom Christmas card. By designing your own card design details, colors, and personal sentiments, you’ll be sure to create a holiday card that cannot be matched or found anywhere else. Your unique greeting card will have no problem getting everyone’s attention. Upload your own card design that features a family photo, a vacation picture, or fun candid pictures to your photo Christmas cards to make them instantly recognizable. Our DIY Christmas card maker platform will help you personalize your photo cards and modify the text, colors and messaging to your preference.
