Ideas for DIY Holiday Cards this Season


Cards are just one way to keep in touch as well as to express emotions such as love, congratulations, condolences, and gratitude.  Although we live in a world run by digital communication, a card sent through postal mail can mean a lot to both the sender and the recipient.  They can even mean more than an email, an e-card, or even a phone call sometimes.

I found the digital news media website "Mashable" had some very unique ideas for creating your own holiday cards. Titled "15 simple ideas for creative holiday cards."

Click here to see the full article. Personally, I thought idea number 6 titled "Wrap yourself in lights" where the kids were wrapped up with Christmas Lights was pretty funny as well as being creative. If you don't want to be in the picture number 14 "Make your pets the stars of the shoot" was a good alternative.

There are a lot of good ideas to create holiday cards. Taking an existing snapshot that was done on your smartphone and then uploading it to an online service may be all you need to create a holiday card your friends will enjoy.

Adding a 16th idea, you simply could do a family portrait session with L. David Likes Photography and we could create your holiday cards for you!

We have several cards to pick from. New for 2016 we have Artistry Cards with their unique cookie cutter style cut-out card designs. Click here to see some cards that you might like.

Another alternative to using stock cards, is to let us create a custom holiday card for you.

 With our special software we can help you pick a base card template and start building the design from there. Quickly we can add different design styles and then finish off the design using photoshop.
