You may have seen my post recently on the fabulous invitations and stationary that I made on Basic Invite. I am in love with their quality and options that they have. This year, my Christmas card ideas came to life with their holiday line, and I am so excited to be partnering with them to bring it to you all.Ways to bring your Christmas card ideas to life using Basic Invite. Some great personal examples of those classic family holiday photos.

There’s nothing like a Christmas card photoshoot to bring the family together and it’s already that time of year! Can you believe it?! Santa is on his way – so, we must prepare and that starts with sending out holiday cards. Just in time for family photos, I was lucky enough to hook up with the masters of stationary over at Basic Invite. And now, we will all be taking our Christmas card ideas to the ultimate yule tide level by customizing our very own photo Christmas cards through Basic Invite.

This year, my family really wanted to do something fun for our holiday cards. I had a variety of Christmas card ideas in mind, but I finally settled on onesie pajamas for the whole family. My husband may or may not kill me for these photos, but I absolutely love how they turned out! Even though it took about 50 tries to get those one shot. You know how holiday photos go with kiddos.

img_6400This holiday season Basic Invite introduced an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite will be offering recipients address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders during the 2016 season. And right now Basic Invite is offering 30% off with coupon code: holi30.

If you still haven’t sent out your 2016 holiday cards or invitations to your Christmas party- there is time yet! Now that you know how it works, grab yourself a well deserved glass of Merlot (you’ll need it after that Christmas card photo session with the little ones), kick back on the couch, and get those cards designed and ordered. Don’t forget to use the discount code above:)

Did you have any fun Christmas card ideas this year? Do you do family themes for your cards?
