Even if you’re active on every social media outlet known to man, from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to Google+, MySpace and Digg, I can 100% guarantee that your friends and family want a printed holiday card. Not only do they want a paper greeting, they look forward to it and value it far more than any evanescent photo, well-wish or sappy sentiment you post for all the world to see. We’ve chosen a few of our favorites from the 2014 holiday card collection to showcase your best family photos – a.k.a. #TBT contenders for the 2030 holiday season.
Retro Camper Whether you had an honest-to-goodness camping adventure this year or you went soft and glamped out in the back yard – or even if you just have some fabulous campstyle-chic wool, flannel and sheepskin attire you want to rock in your holiday photo – Mixbook’s Retro Camper card is the perfect way to set off your pics.
Sweet Scallops Far more fresh and modern than its prim and proper predecessor, this scaled-up version of pure-white scallop work creates a background that’s a bold as it is clean. Mixbook’s Sweet Scallops holiday card just might be the sleeper hit of the season.
Bold and Bright In the perfectly off-palette, sun-washed hues of vintage graphics, this typographic design pops with the most universally appreciated words of the season. Mixbook’s Bold and Bright card complements family photos of summer fun as well as it does cozy portraits in front of the tree.
Naughty and Nice Is there any funnier – or more classic – meme during the holidays than that of “naughty & nice?” Whether you’re classifying brother and sister, husband and wife, or feline and canine, it’s fun to toy with grand generalizations by using Mixbook stickers to add halos and devil horns to unsuspecting subjects. Just superimpose them right in the Mixbook editor – it couldn’t be easier. And remember, you can always use the card’s reverse to decorate the same people with different stickers.
Year in Review Share a short and sweet snapshot of the past twelve months with your top 4 family news stories. Use the back of your card to illustrate each big event, or use it to summarize your big wishes for the year ahead.
Happy Holiday card–making. Happy Mixbooking!
