Christmas card photo ideas can be simple or extravagant. You can make it a single page or multi-fold card. I've created photo cards from printed photos but if you have a great color printer, you don't have to get your prints developed like I did.
You don't have to use Christmas pattern paper. Oftentimes the pattern paper is busy and it clashes with the photo. If you want to use pattern paper, then print a black and white photo like I did on the card above.
You can add just a piece of ribbon to your Christmas card photo idea or load it up with ribbon, lace, stickers and glitter.
That’s the beauty of creating your own photo ideas for Christmas cards, you can do whatever you like!
Photo crafts are always fun to create because adding a photo to your card adds that extra personalization. And it always adds a smile to my face when I open up a photo greeting card.
Since lots of people are receiving photo cards these days, make yours stand out by thinking of a unique photo Christmas card idea.
You don’t need to rack your brain thinking of more Christmas card photo ideas. Look to websites, book stores or keep coming back to this website for new ideas. I also look at websites that sell photo cards and use the layouts as inspiration for family photo Christmas card ideas.
Photo cards can be costly in some instances but with your handmade photo Christmas card, you can create them more cheaply.
This requires some planning ahead but it will benefit your wallet in the long run.
TIPS FOR SAVING $:
Not all the photo greeting cards have to be the same so if you have scraps of paper, ribbon or other embellishments you’d like to use, don’t be afraid to change the design up a bit. You can make every card a unique design if you’re ambitious.
So you can spark all kinds of Christmas card photo ideas…it’s just within your fingertip reach.
