Christmas Card Templates

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful fall and looking forward to the upcoming holidays. I am almost done with a Christmas kit for you all (just have someelements to finish up on). But I thought I'd throw together a few Christmas card templates that you are free to use if you'd like. I have designed each on as a 4x6, 5x7, and Costco's greeting card size which is a 6x7.5 (these come with free envelopes too). Some of them have a little area where you can add your own text. They are "png" files which means you just put your picture in behind the template and then save as a jpeg. And might I suggest that wherever you take them to be developed, that you choose the "matte" or "lustre" finish instead of the "glossy." Here are the samples of them using our family's picture from last year:

thank you so much for this wonderful freebie! I love it so much and going to use this template to send out my christmas card to all my friends (who are non-bloggers and yet to know about photo-greeting card..). Haven't keep in-touch with them eversince baby comes along. It is superb idea to send pic of me and baby to them for a quick update.
Once again, I want to thank you for being such a kind, warm-hearted, gifted and loving person.
warm hugs, Heaney.

Thank you Summer.

Cap Creations said...

Those are great Summer! Thank you for sharing!

I was wondering, are we allowed to create cards like these with your kits and offer the completed card as a freebie on our blogs?

I'd love to do so on my blog! Please let me know.

Terry said...

Thank you for the beautiful templates.

Summer said...

Cap Creations ~ Great question, and you are not the first to ask! Yes, you are more then welcome to use my papers/elements to create holiday cards and offer them for free. If, you happen to want to do it for a business and have people pay you to create their cards, then you would need to purchase a Commercial License Agreement ($20 for the use of ONE kit, $100 for the use of ALL kits). ~Summer

Thanks for sharing these beautiful Christmas Card templates!

Cap Creations said...

Thanks for the info Summer! I hope to get some freebie cards up soon then! I'll let you know when they are up. In-case you care to have a look.

Will definitely remember your license agreement if I ever decide to sell. Not much time for that though just yet.

LOVE LOVE LOVE your kits by the way! Thanks again!

Melissa said...

These are so fabulous! I think I will use the bottom card!

Thanks so much!

Stephenie said...

I just found your website and I feel like a kid in a candy shop. You are amazingly creative. Thanks for sharing!

Greg, Ang & 4 kidlets said...

I was going to TRY to make my own this year, but why . . . if I can use your amazingly cute ones:) Thanks so much for all your hard work!

Greg, Ang & 4 kidlets said...

Oh- one question since I am kind of new at this- how do you order cards with your own design on them at Costco (6X8) and have them come with the envelopes?

Summer said...

Stephenie...welcome to the candy shop! :) And to those who want to order the Costco greeting cards (which is a 6x7.5 size), just log in to Costco.com find their photo department, sign in (you have to have a Costco membership to do this). Then you upload your image. Once the image is uploaded, on the right side look for "create gifts". From there click on "6x7 1/2 photo greeting cards". Then click "create". Find the word "more" and scroll down to the very bottom where it says "custom template". From there you should be able to locate the photo card that you had uploaded at the beginning. First, make sure your orientation is right (vertical or horizontal) and then click on your card. It should be pretty easy after that! ~Summer
