Christmas is only two weeks away! Isn’t that crazy? It’s funny how we all know it’s going to be on December 25th, yet it seems to sneak up on us anyway! Have you ordered your holiday cards yet? We just received ours a few days ago from Basic Invite and I’m so excited to share them with you! This was my first time using Basic Invite and I have to say, I am so happy with how they turned out! I was a little nervous about our Christmas cards this year because we didn’t have any professional photos to use. This Christmas is our third being married, so the first year we used a wedding photo and last year we had my sister-in-law take our photos. But, we didn’t have anything super fancy this year, so I decided to use a picture of us from Thanksgiving and the cards came out so well!

Basic Invite makes the process so easy. You just pick the card style that you like, upload your picture, personalize the text, change any colors you’d like to and you can see exactly how your card will look right from your own computer. But, if you aren’t 100% ready to commit, you can order samples to see exactly how they’ll look before placing your entire order.

One thing that I always look for in holiday cards is address printing on the envelopes. You can even get your return address added and this makes it so easy to just put your cards in the envelopes and ship them off! Basic Invite has so many fonts to choose from for this and over 40 different colors for envelopes. You can see the front of one of our envelopes in the first picture to get an idea of how they look. I love them and it saves me so much time! Another reason I really love this is because I’m left-handed and sometimes ink smudges on the envelope or I have to wait for each word to dry before writing the next. I know, not a huge deal, but it is nice not to worry about!

If you’re looking for something more specific than traditional holiday Christmas Cards, Basic Invite also has business Christmas cards and pet Christmas cards. Overall, they have more than 500 designs, so you’re sure to find something you love. The best part is that you can take 15% off your order with code 15FF51. Be sure to order soon so you can get them in time for Christmas! But, I have to say that our cards arrived significantly earlier than it said they would when I placed my order. If you have any questions, I’d be more than happy to answer them!

Thank you to Basic Invite for sponsoring this post!

Thanks so much for reading!
