Spread a little Christmas cheer this year with modern holiday cards from Basic Invite!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I'm ready to focus on Christmas. I thought I'd feel more frantic right now, but I actually think I'm in a good place.

I have lists of gift ideas for the kids. Stephen's brought our holiday decorations up from the basement. And we're planning on getting our Christmas tree after church on Sunday. (We'll need something to do that night while as our little corner of Connecticut gets hit by a snowstorm...)

Even more impressive than all that? I used Basic Invite to choose, customize, and order our holiday card for this year!

Basic Invite offers more than 1,000 modern holiday cards on their website. And their watercolor Christmas cards are perfect for sending holiday messages. But do you know what sets Basic Invite apart from other online stationery stores? The fact that they provide almost unlimited color options with instant previews online.

Once you choose a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With more than 180 color options, your holiday cards will look exactly the way you want them to. Have your eye on a foil card? You can choose flat or raised foil on all Basic Invite foil designs. You can even specify the color of your envelopes, choosing from over 40 different colors. This allows you to match your envelopes with your cards... or even your company Christmas party invitations.

Here are some more ways Basic Invite makes the process of sending holiday cards even easier:

  • they have an address-capturing service... they'll provide a link you can share on social media to collect addresses from family and friends
  • they offer recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders
  • all envelopes are peel-and-stick so no licking! 

Knowing that I could customize any design made choosing a card much more enjoyable. I didn't have to settle for a design that was close enough. The card I picked looks exactly the way I want it to and I can't wait to send it out in a few weeks!

With that said, though, Basic Invite has so many great choices that I wanted to order them all. I can't tell you which one I chose -- I have to keep it a surprise until our cards go out! -- but I will share ten of my favorite designs with you. Keep reading to see which modern holiday cards caught my eye!
