There are many ways to create your own personalized cards for the holidays. This guide contains Christmas card photo ideas.
The new gazebo at the end of our dock cried out for decoration this season.
Would you mind to share the original photo? The original would be much more refreshing and interesting than one that looks like a mass manufactured Christmas card.
This picture is so perfect it kind of makes me wonder. Like Deeli, I would like to see the original.
We have had so many great photo ideas submitted that we have broken this into two articles.
Here is the link to the second section if you still need more ideas. Post your own Christmas card photo here.
Our second year married, my husband and I pretended to be asleep in our bed. I took a separate picture of our dog in a Santa costume then, using Photoshop, superimposed him in a thought bubble. The card read, "The Nemecs were nestled, all snug in their bed while visions of Jack danced in their heads."
Last year, our third Christmas together, we made milk mustaches and had a plate of cookies in front of us and were toasting with champagne glasses filled with milk. On a fluke, the dog stuck his tongue in the glass as the camera went off, and the picture was hysterical. It read: "Wishing you a milky white Christmas."
"Remembering the reason for the season... Happy Birthday Baby Jesus!"
Last year, I took our Santa hats to the beach and had the Kids stand by the surf in their swimsuits. I put it in black and white and colored in the Santa hats. I ended up not using this one because I got an impromptu shot that was better. We went to the mountains to a Christmas Tree farm to choose and cut down our own tree. This was the first time we had ever done that. I took my camera just to document the day and snapped a pic of the kids by our choice of tree. I used the caption "We found the perfect tree. Hope you have a perfect Christmas".

I came up with this idea based on another idea shared on this website. Love this site...I come to it every year to look for ideas.
I took these ideas and ran with one of them this past Christmas. I took a picture in front of our Christmas tree, and "antiqued" the pic a bit.
Above their heads, I wrote, "Silent Night, Holy Night". Along the bottom I wrote, "Yes.....Yes It Is....Merry Christmas From The Haselhorsts" We got so many compliments from everyone we sent these to.
One of the comments was: "Best card we got this year, hands down!" The kids were giggling through then entire photo shoot. My son even took off with the tape and tried to convince me to take more pictures of just him with tape all over (I didn't).
We had a great time. Only had one family member who wasn't impressed (I found out through the grapevine, but this person isn't known for a great sense of humor), but everyone else loved it! Love this site! Thank you!
I propped my 3 month old on his belly and elbows and put an adult sized Santa hat on him. I also got photos of him sleeping in his elf outfit that said, "Santa's little helper" and cropped the photos into a website that provided the template and ordered enough for everyone on my Christmas card list!
That was awesome! What website did you find to do all that?
My son was a knight for Halloween, so it was great to get double duty from his costume!
Excellent reuse of the costume. Was it planned this way or did you do it intentionally for Halloween and Christmas? Very adorable either way.
Whew, cute but borderline creepy. I could handle a finger shh over the mouth, but, personally, the duct tape gives me the chills. To each their own. I'm glad your son got some fun out of it. it is a clever play on words! lol
This is a guide about Christmas card photo ideas with pets. Many pet owners like to include their pets in the family photo for their homemade Christmas cards.
This is a guide about Christmas card photo ideas with kids. Homemade Christmas cards with photos of the kids are fun to make and a great way to share photos with family and friends.
I saw a great idea for a Christmas card on here and wondered if someone could tell me how to do it. They took individual pictures of their kids and made them into one picture. I've tried to figure it out but haven't had any success. Thanks!
You can do that - if you are skillful - with any photo editing software - like Photoshop -
You get them on the computer. Use the cut and paste star or box in paint brush. No need for professional editing or pricey software.
We love the movie "A Christmas Story". So last year we decided to pay tribute to the scene the boys love best, which is where one kid dares the other kid to stick his tongue to a frozen flag pole. I used my photo software to change the picture to black and white and frosted the edges. The caption on the card read "WE TRIPLE DOG DARE YOU TO HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS". Everyone loved it!
Get a box large enough to fit your baby in it. Wrap the box and put a ribbon on it. Place the baby in the box and put a bow on top of his or her head. You take the picture outside in the snow, or under your tree.
