Customized Holiday Cards

I LOVE sending Christmas cards. There. I Said it. I look forward to the holiday season every year so that we can plaster our faces on the front of some beautifully printed card and send it your way. Things were a little different this year as we had to announce the arrival of sweet baby Vita! That girl…

I wanted to send a birth announcement of sorts. I also wanted to send a Christmas card. But I didn’t want to pay postage twice! I’m cheap. Do you see my dilemma here? Answer to my solution: a folded card from Pinhole Press. The folks at Pinhole Press were kind enough to provide our Christmas cards to us this year. I was able to find a clean and simple card that seemed to fit our holiday theme this year. Having a baby is a definite cause for simplicity!

I’m also a sucker for white envelopes. I decided to customize our envelopes a bit this year by adding some cute holly berry paper from Paper Source! If you haven’t sent your cards out this year, check out how to add a little shizazz (it’s a word…) to your envelopes!

Customized Holiday Cards


  • envelope
  • decorative paper
  • pen
  • scissors
  • glue dots

Customized Holiday Cards

Using the pen, trace your envelope onto the decorative paper. Cut 1/4″-1/2″ inside the line to make the paper just a tad smaller than your envelope.

Stuff it inside your envelope and press a few glue dots on the back so that it adheres to the envelope and that’s it!

So simple and now the card is even MORE decorative and celebrational and full of shizazz (it’s a word…)! Let’s just talk about that sweet picture of baby girl!

If you haven’t ordered your cards yet, there is still time! I was a total slacker this year when it came to the ordering. I placed the order, and the cards were on my doorstep three days later. That’s fast, my friends. And I didn’t even choose expedited shipping! Head on over to Pinhole Press to pick out a card right now! You can send cards well into the new year and you can even save 20% off your holiday order with the code: CARDS20! Everyone loves pretty mail.
