Great Sites To Design Your Holiday Cards... or D.I.Y

It's THAT time again where Christmas cards go flying off the shelves like hot pancakes. But if you are like me, a permanent convert of the customized holiday cards, then you're probably scrambling to find the best sites to create the best cards with great designs but doesn't cost you an arm and a leg right now!

Yes, there are a lot of them out there but some just outshine the rest. So which made the cut?

Check the list, check it twice and pick your favorite.

1. Tiny Prints - I always love their fresh and fun designs. The simplicity spells pretty and plain cute! 7x5 Flat card starts at $1.39 each.

If you ever end up with extras? Don't worry about it. Turn them into stunning coasters or bookmarks!

2. Paper Culture - Modern and contemporary. It's visually appealing, like a breath of fresh air. Flat card 6x4.3 starts at $2.59 each.

3. PicMonkey - Possibly my favorite. Aside from being a great photo editing site, it also offers seasonal templates to create stunning photo cards! Best of all? It's FREE!

If you want to D.I.Y. (because you're feeling creatively talented) and want the flexibility to tweak your project to your liking, you can do initial designs on Picmonkey and finish up via GIMP (my favorite photo editing software) or photoshop. Here is my (almost complete) fun D.I.Y. project using both platform, GIMP and Picmonkey coolness for my Holiday card this year.

Not bad huh?! I encourage you to click LIKE if you like! lol.
