Our Christmas Cards for 2018 with Basic Invite


It’s officially November, which means I’m prepping early for Christmas because November is an insane month for our family (birthdays on birthdays, anniversaries, and of course Thanksgiving!) I love doing happy holiday cards for our friends and family, but last year I totally dropped the ball and never sent them. SOOO this year, we’re definitely sending them + I am adding some special touches to the ones I will hand-deliver. There’s just something about dried oranges and sprigs of greenery - I can’t get enough this time of year.


We got these darling cards from Basic Invite, and it took me like 4-5 different versions of this card before I nailed it down because they have so many elegant Christmas cards it just felt impossible to choose one from their 500+ Christmas card and holiday card designs. I also played around with what seemed like a million different color schemes (a designer’s dream of course) because they have over 180 different color options you can try on card designs. They also have foil (gold, silver and rose gold) for those wanting that extra special finish.


I love the envelopes we got too - they have over 40 different colors that you can match to your card. I always try to find a fun envelope color because it just feels so festive and special from the moment you get it in the mail.

I’m a little extra this year with how I’m handwriting cursive on card envelopes, but if you’re strapped for time, Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that’s no extra cost on Christmas card orders. You can simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request your friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the your account and can then be selected during the design process. BAM, done.


For my girl boss friends, business owners, and freelancers, Basic Invite also has professional holiday cards that will knock your socks off.
