When it comes to Holiday cards I am horrible…absolutely horrible about procrastinating. I am almost positive that I have not gotten one out to family and friends before the New Years since the kids have been born. Horrible yes? This year, with the Holidays right around the corner I have promised myself that I will get a jump start on this before Christmas gets here and I forget. 

Christmas Card Themes

My absolutely favorite style of Christmas cards to send and receive are photo cards that tell a story. Every year it brings so much joy to our mantle to display the cards we have received that not only display the faces of all our loved ones, but also so their unique personality!

Below you will find 50 amazing ideas for creating your own family Christmas photo cards. And the best part? You don’t need to hire a professional photographer to make these special! In fact the BEST photo cards include spontaneous photos that displays your family’s personality!!
