As happy and festive as it might be, the holiday season might just be one of the most stressful times of our year. Between endless holiday parties, whipping up meals, shopping for gifts, and decorating the house, we felt like we had so much and with so little time! However, there was one thing that we did get started on earlier on to ease the holiday madness, which was ordering a sweet Etsy Christmas photo card for sending the season’s greetings. In our busy, mad digital world, tangible holiday cards are more meaningful than ever before. Whether we wanted to wow our friends with customized digitized video books or wanted ultra-festive photo cards, Etsy had us covered with some of the best options for holiday cards.
Since Christmas is stressful as it is, we’ve spent time doing the legwork here for you and sifted through tens of hundreds of photo cards to select ones that are perfect for sending the season’s greetings. To that end, here’s a detailed guide to Etsy’s holiday cards for creating and sharing holiday cheer.

How To Choose The Best Etsy Christmas Photo Card Ideas?
Consider the theme
Sure, the theme of the Christmas photo card is, well, Christmas. However, you also need to consider what your card is ‘saying’ overall. Did something special happen this year? Did you reach a major milestone? Was there the arrival of a new baby or maybe a new pet? Did you perhaps take a special trip somewhere? The idea of such cards is to help you share the good news that’s happened to you throughout the year.
Do you want your Xmas photo card to have any text or a special message? If then, what should it be? Also, how much custom text would you want to include on the card? That way, you can choose from different designs with just single small text boxes or cards that have larger/more boxes.
