Creative {Holiday} Cards

Baltimore, MD, USA
Are you the type of person that likes to create their own holiday cards each year? 
I do too.
Usually mine has a photo of my dog Ella on it, because well, she's adorable (I'm only a little biased).

I like to have several creative options so that I can customize my cards as much as possible, for either personal or corporate cards. With my first year in business for the Boho Marketing Co coming up, I wanted to also be able to use my style on either corporate Christmas cards or corporate holiday cards to thank clients and friends who have helped along the way. 

For personal cards, I love customized Christmas photo cards and with Basic Invite, I found the perfect cards this year. I'm so excited to show you a few styles that I loved.

Some of the samples I tried out. I did different types of paper, different color envelopes and different styles and shapes, to see what I liked most.

How did I choose? 
Well for starters Basic Invite sends you a FREE sample to see what your card feels and looks like before you order. I like this because Basic Invite has such a large color palette, and I chose this year to do a colorful envelope (something I've never done) because they had so many choices. The free sample allows you to feel the quality of the paper too, so that you know exactly what you are getting. (see below). You can even get tri fold holiday cards.

Options of colors, paper type, texture, and card shape.

When it comes to colors, Basic Invite has just about unlimited colors down to the smallest detail, with over 180 color options. Then there's over 40 different colors of envelopes to choose from as well. I'm telling you, if you like unique, Basic Invite is the company for you. 

But let's talk about my favorite part and then I'll show you some of the personalized designs that I created
I think the part of holiday cards that I dislike the most, is the addressing of the envelopes. 
This is the first time I've seen this, and it's so awesome. 
Basic Invite has an Address Capturing Service. Basically what happens is you share a link to your clients, family and friends, and it requests their addresses, which are then stored in your Basic Invite account, and you simply select them during the design process. Then Basic Invite prints them out for NO COST on the orders. 
It doesn't get much easier than that. 

Here were my personal choices- do me a favor- vote on the one you love most!
Choice 1

Choice 2

Choice 3

Lastly, I'm including some inspiration from Basic Invite as well, for your cards too! 
You can also do Halloween & Thanksgiving, see below.

Just so you know, there are over 500 Christmas and holiday card designs and the BEST PART is Basic Invite is having a SALE of 30% off with coupon code holi30!

I wanted to post this early enough so that you could order some samples and get a feel for the exact card that is right for you- and also have time to reach out to everyone for their addresses.

Please show me what you create or tag me on instagram- I'm so excited to see what everyone chooses.

Have a great week and is it too early for holiday music yet?
