The traditional is new again with the runway’s take on stripes, plaids, and lattice textures. These lines are anything but boring, with their varied thickness, direction, shape, and energy. They are an accessible trend that seamlessly blends in with the season’s holiday imagery.
This year features a modern twist on the classical pattern, pairing clean lines with bold designs. Stripes are a long-standing staple both in fashion and in decor. The novelty is in how different designers give it their signature touch. In this season, it is all about direction.
‘Tis the season to gather family photo ideas! After all, your Christmas cards won’t create themselves. To help, we’ve gathered the best family photo ideas that will make creating your Christmas cards quick and snappy (and extra merry) this year!
1. Holiday traditions
Create a truly traditional card by capturing holiday moments your family does year after year. Like picking out the tree, decorating the tree or baking holiday cookies.
2. Make a Run for it
Have the whole family make a run for it. You’ll be surprised how fun this photo idea is!
We love the way this family fits our Photo Blocks and Stripes Christmas card, and how our card fits this family! When looking for family photo Christmas card ideas, Tina was specifically looking for a tri-fold card because she has three children. “We really liked this particular card because, not only did it let us showcase each of our children, it also provided room for a family picture and a short holiday letter.”
They are lucky to have a friend, Gina Monroe, who is a photographer and who takes their family photos every year. “She has an amazing ability to capture the essence of our children.” Her photos worked perfectly with Tina’s family photo Christmas card ideas.
Sending a letter card, however, is a ‘first’ for them. “I love that this card permits space for a letter. I had never sent a letter in the past because I did not want to have to enclose a separate item with the card itself.”
“The process at Pear Tree Greetings was very easy! I was very excited to get the cards in the mail and couldn’t wait to see how they turned out.” We hope you like them, Tina, because we sure do!
