Every holiday season, I always look forward to seeing everyone's Christmas photo cards. I love seeing a family's favorite photo(s) from the year and sharing the joy of the season with family and friends. This year, to spread holiday joy, we used Basic Invite to create our Christmas card from the christmas cards photo category.

There are so many different design options to choose from and with over 180 different colors, Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card and you can customize it to be your perfect card. It truly sets Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company. If you're more of a hands-on proofreader, you can also order custom samples before placing your final order.

This year is special because it's baby Gabriel's first Christmas, so we decided to choose a few different designs to customize. We chose a Christmas collage option to send to friends and family and we also chose to customize a merry little Christmas design to have as a keepsake from his first Christmas and to send to his grandparents as a special card for them.

The design process was so easy and I was able to upload multiple photos at once to see which photos looked best in my chosen card designs. Customizing the text is so simple, too! You can change the font, color, and size, and also remove or add text boxes--the possibilities are endless.

I personally love that once you create an account, you can create a design, save your edited design, and come back to either make additional edits or add to your cart to place your final order. 
Adding in another feature, who doesn't love a gorgeous foil accent on a card?! Basic Invite offers foil cards in gold, silver, and rose gold that can be either flat or raised. I am simply obsessed with gold foil during the holidays!

Peel-and-stick envelopes 
(bless!) are also free with holiday party invitation orders and holiday cards. You can also upgrade for a small cost to have names and addresses printed on the envelope--talk about a time saver during the holiday season. If you don't have all of your friends and family's addresses, Basic Invite offers a service to make gathering addresses from friends and family a breeze. All you do is simply share a personalized link on Facebook, X (Twitter), Instagram, through text, or any other media to request addresses from family and friends. Addresses are stored securely in your account and can be selected for print during the design process.

Basic Invite doesn't just have holiday cards--they offer a variety of beautiful customizable designs and products. Whether you're getting married, welcoming a new little one to the world, hosting a party, celebrating a milestone, or need stationary, Basic Invite has you covered.

Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
