Christmas Card Photo Ideas

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 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 $:

  • First, you’ll want to start researching photo card ideas on the web, magazines or books.
  • Collect any coupons from craft stores and look out for sales.
  • Pick a photo that you like. Look for coupons or stores that have sales on printing your photo. Stores usually provide quantity discounts.

  • Once you have a Christmas photo card idea that you like, mock it up and see how much material you’ll need for the quantity you are making. Use your coupons or utilize sales to make your dollar stretch.
  • Discount and "Dollar" stores offer some craft supplies so don’t forget to check those out.
  • Don’t forget to order your photos and order a few extras for mistakes or if you forget someone on your list.
  • Use whatever whatever scraps of paper or trim you have laying around. The colors don't have to be red or green. Punch out a brown snowflake if brown is the color scheme you want to use.

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.
