Sending holiday cards to friends and family is often forgotten about but they’re so much fun! These printable Christmas cards are a fun and festive way to show you care and wish everyone a happy holiday. Plus, guess what? They’re free and so many to choose from. Happy Holidays!
To be honest, I honestly didn’t think much about holiday Christmas cards until I had my daughter, Lily. Having a December baby gave me so many creative ideas like what I wanted her to wear and all of the themes for the next 10 Christmas cards… it was going to be awesome!
Then, the holidays rolled around, I have no card. I was going to design a super cute Christmas themed card but life just simply got in the way and I was way behind. So, I went out there on the internet and prayed I could find something close to what I imagined and SURPRISE!
I was so shocked at how many amazing free printable Christmas cards were available out there. You had everything! From a traditional Merry Christmas to Winter Wonderland and everything in between, you can choose from a variety of cards.
This was a lifesaver and I was able to get all of my holiday cards out on time. You guys can too!
What To Write In A Christmas Card
Writing a special message in your Christmas card is almost as important as sending out the card itself. It’s a time for you to let the person know how special they are to and you’ve been thinking of them. It always feels good to open the mailbox and have something sweet instead of more bills around this time of year!
If you are facing some major writer’s block, don’t worry, I’m here to help! Here are a few things to think about when you are thinking of what to write:
- What are the reasons why you are sending this person a card? Is it personal, professional, or some other reason?
- Has the individual been dealing with difficult times, and you want to lift them up?
- Is this person a long-time friend or family member you want to make smile?
- Has it been a while since you’ve seen each other?
- How much do you miss this person?
I would usually think about these and just write down what I was feeling. Even if you’re miles away, people can feel what you are feeling through your writing.
Christmas Card Sayings
Are you looking for a little more than a “Merry Christmas”?
You can easily put a few sayings on the cards and pick the best ones for the people you are sending the cards to. This way, you don’t have to put as much thought into it, and you can easily repeat the same message on several cards.
Take a look at these Christmas sayings and save yourself a headache!
