Where To Find Cute Christmas Cards

Sending Christmas cards is a Holiday tradition. I keep a list of who sent me a card from the previous year and add to it throughout the year, as new acquaintances are mace or new  business connections are made. While snail mail has slowed down, sending out those Holiday cards is still important to me.  And, I love receiving them, too.  I always incorporate my cards into a piece of Holiday decor to display for all to see.

When choosing my cards, I normally go with cute Christmas cards for my family and friends.  I prefer something with bright Christmas colors and a pretty font. The actual design HAS to speak to my likes and what is popular or trendy. 

This bright red card with this bold white design is perfect.  I am going to be jotting personal notes in each, as this makes the card seem heartfelt and personal to the individual.  

 In the past I have purchased cards in a store and brought them home, did my notes for each card, addressed them, sealed the envelope and it is time consuming.   Time is something we all seem to lack when the Holidays are nearing. So, I decided to take a look at Basic Invite, an online website that can do almost everything you need when it comes to your Christmas card list.

 Creating your cards on Basic Invite is as easy and fun.  Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once they select a design, customers can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, the card or
 invitation is sure to be exactly how you want it.  They carry cards and invitations for all occasions.

Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. This is by far the BEST thing to ever happen when it comes to sending Christmas cards.

Whether you need holidays pictures cards or holiday cocktail party invites, Basic Invite has many card choices. Right now, they are offering 15% off with the coupon code 15FF51.  Drop me a comment and tell me which card you chose and what color combination you used.

These feel like luxury on your body.  They are super absorbent and it feels like heaven when you are drying your body off with these lovely towel linens. And knowing that they are Eco friendly, just makes me want to buy more of them.  Luxury towels that GREEN certified,  YES, I will definitely be buying more of these for myself and for gifts.  I promise you or your gift recipient will love them.
