Friday Freebie – Printable Holiday Cards

November 12th, 2010 by Avital

Free Holiday Cards

This week I have a special treat for you guys, a set of a couple printable holiday cards (for personal use only).

To download it simply click on the image (or the link) and if it doesn’t work try to right-click on it and opt for the “save target as…” option (it may be phrased a bit differently on different operating systems – but do NOT opt for the “save image as” option, as you will get the low resolution tiny preview image).

To use them, simply print the PDF file on a letter sized cardstock, cut them, lengthwise, at 4¼” and fold each piece in half, inward. That’s it.

You can then add a ribbon, a chipboard element or leave it clean and simple, as is. No more than a minute per card.

Now, as much as I appreciate Jennifer Mc’Guire‘s beautiful, artistic cards that every single time make my eyes pop or Lisa Spangler‘s adorable and beautifully made cards and as much as I love Kristina Werner‘s graphic style and creative use of products as well as many other über talented and creative card-artists out there – when the time comes to send dozens, if not hundreds, of holiday cards – I don’t think it is practical to engage in such intricate card making [not to mention one must also be as talented as they are to achieve all of that].

Therefore I always keep it quick and simple and there’s NOTHING SIMPLER than printing, cutting and folding in half…

I hope my mischievous methods will also be helpful to you in this holiday season.

You can always make a few special, more time consuming cards to your close family and best friends…

Make sure you didn’t miss the rest of the free printables on Creativity Prompt.

    Hi, these look fab, thanks for sharing. Unfortunately I get a Drawing error has occured message when I try to download it. Any ideas? Thanks

      This happens with some browsers. All you need to do is right-click on the download link and choose the “save target as” option. Do not opt for ‘save image’ or it will only give you the low resolution preview image.

    LOL, I had to laugh about the card maker gurus you mentioned … When I see them, I always think, oh, I have the stuff to make those … but it never happens (I send 50+ a year). So inevitably I buy the premade ones – slap an address label on and send off. I do write a personal note in each one.
    Thanks for these though! Very simple and elegant so they will stand out from the crowd!

    I only started making cards this year, and they are mostly birthday and thank you cards. What we do for the Holidays is send a one page photo collage newsletter to our relatives and friends – all 200 of them. We started this tradition after I spent a weekend hand writing 50 cards to the “close” family and friends, while feeling guilty about not sending it to “everyone”. Mass mailers work for us and everyone loves our year in review stories. (Even though I get about 5-10 replies back).

  6. This old and overused adage applies so well here: LESS IS MORE!
    I love your cards Avital!
    Thank you ~

    I’ve been struggling this year with cards because I’m resisting the urge to buy something new because I have PLENTY! I love the simplicity of these and I think I will use them for the bulk and then make a few special ones for those who will appreciate a handmade card! Thanks so very much! Have a wonderful holiday!!
