Christmas cards do not have to be Christmas colors :)

I sat down yesterday to work on some more Christmas card templates, and I thought to myself "What if I didn't use red and green?" I mean, there's no law that says Christmas cards HAVE to be red and, I went with my gut, and this is what I came up with! I did use some red and some green {I can't totally shun the colors, right?} but I didn't use them together! Enjoy a playful take on Christmas cards...

Oh, and I forgot to mention in my earlier blog that if you want to give your recipients a "family update", we can do that. I can include a note on a separate piece of paper telling them what you have been up to the last year...for most of my friends, this year has been filled with new babies and marriages! So exciting!! Add $0.25 to the price per card!

Shown in 4x6 with 2 pictures. We can redesign to fit one picture or even three.

LOVE this! Definitely more cutsie, but so fun! Shown in 4x6. This can be redesigned to fit two pictures on the side.

Polka dots have arrived!!! The yellow frame could also be pink or green! Shown in 5x7.

SO fun! Who'd a thought you could make a Christmas card using pink and green? Shown in 5x7.

The background looks yellow, but in real life, it looks more green. Again, the frame can also be pink, yellow, or green. Shown in 5x7.

Since I have this star pattern, I just had to use it! But, I refused to use the green frame {of course, if you want the green frame, I will certainly do it for you} so I picked blue cute!

More to come....

Christmas cards!! YAY!!

Hey y'all! I'm doing christmas cards this year! I've got about 7 templates done so far! See pics below! Some are 5x7, some are 4 1/2 x 6...any of them can be done in any size. The cards shown below are printed on card stock. The next examples I post will be on photo paper! They can be printed on either one (I would recommend photo paper). Here are the prices:

4 1/2 x 6 cards, includes envelopes
30 cards or less - $1.00 each
31 to 50 cards - $0.90 each
51 to 75 cards - $0.80 each
above 75 - $0.70 each

4x9, includes envelopes
30 cards or less - $1.25 each
31 to 50 cards - $1.15 each
51 to 75 cards - $1.05 each
above 75 - $.95 each

5x7, includes envelopes
30 cards or less - $1.25 each
31 to 50 cards - $1.15 each
51 to 75 cards - $1.05 each
above 75 - $.95 each

Shipping is $3.00 on all orders of 50 cards or lower, $5.00 on orders of more than 51 cards!

I can really do any size card you want, but these are the size envelopes I'm ordering in bulk. If you want a different size, it might be a longer turn around time b/c I'll have to specially order envelopes.

The prices above are for a flat card, no layering or envelope liners. If you would like a layered look, maybe red card stock layered behind your photo card? Add $0.25 to the price per card. If you would like envelope liners, add $0.25 to the price per card. If I had to choose one or the other to add a little something extra, I would definitely choose the envelope liner! Maybe a cute red or green gingham liner? Oh so cute!

"Merry & Bright" card. This is shown 4x7 because I was experimenting with sizes, but I would make it one of the sizes above.

"Ticker tape" card. Of course it can say whatever you want it to say :). Shown 5x7.

"Ribbon card" is shown 5x7. This one and the "Ticker tape" card can have multiple photos if you wish.

"Little Merry & Bright" shown in 4x6. Love the simplicity! Would be super cute with a gray envelope liner!

"Polka dot merry christmas" shown in 4x6. B/c of the picture quality {sorry guys} you can't really see the words at the bottom, but I promise you can in real life :) The wording is in tan.

"Christmas tree words" card shown in 5x7. This one can be redesigned to have multiple pictures as well! Would be really cute with a green patterned liner!

"Believe" card. This will probably be our Christmas card this year! Shown in 5x7.

"Joy" card shown in 5x7.

I'm hoping to post a few more templates in a day or two, so check back!
