If your family is like ours, Christmas photo cards are one of those tasks on your to-do list that often get forgotten until it’s too late. So consider this to be your friendly reminder to order your family Christmas photo cards early this year!
When Basic Invite reached out to me to see if they could sponsor a post about traditional birth announcements, I asked if they’d be willing to sponsor a post about Christmas photo cards instead. After all, I wasn’t expecting a new baby, but I did need to order Christmas photo cards with our new family photo on them. They agreed.
Looking for Family Christmas Photo Card Ideas
Before I jumped on the Basic Invite website, I spent some time looking at family Christmas card ideas on Pinterest. Here are a few of the best family Christmas card ideas I found and loved…
- a family in a Christmas light strand
- a family reading a favorite Christmas book
- a family in cozy socks by the fireplace
- a family dressed in matching Christmas pajamas
- a family holding a Christmas greeting garland
- a family laying in the shape of snowflakes
- a family in fake snow
Getting the Perfect Picture
For our family, however, getting the perfect family photo for our Christmas photo card ended up being more difficult than we’d hoped. We grabbed the camera and the family, but the kids were less than enthusiastic about getting their picture taken.
But honestly, I love the outtakes better than the “best” of the bunch. They show the true personalities of each of the members of our family, and isn’t that what we want to share with our family and friends in a Christmas photo card?!?
Creating Our Family Christmas Photo Cards on Basic Invite
So I jumped on Basic Invite, browsed the Christmas photo card layouts, and found one that would allow me to use multiple images in a fun way.
I’ve tried several Christmas photo card services over the years. Basic Invite is definitely the most user-friendly site I’ve used. And all the options… I could have been overwhelmed, but honestly, I loved being able to match and coordinate the colors on the card with the color in our photo!
