Creative Ideas for Holiday Photo Greeting Cards

Updated on October 20, 2014

Holiday Photo Ideas!

You've got to out-do last year's photo greeting card--- But it has to be original--- And don't forget "fresh".

Take a look at the digital photos, photo card color schemes and ideas on this page, vote for your favorite, then "borrow" the idea! It won't matter. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

Get Inspired!

You can also read another article of mine, Merry Christmas From... to find some greeting card ideas.

What kind of picture you want to take for your Holiday Greeting Card:

After you make a choice from the list below, you can leave a comment. Sometimes the best photos are just those that "happen" on their own. The photo of my grandson with the flashing red nose was captured on an iPhone when Bubbie was being silly. Don't you just love it?

What kind of image will you use on your greeting card?

Think about color on your holiday card: - Traditional Green and Red or something else--like pink and turqoise!

You might be traditional or contemporary in your taste. You should plan what color theme you want to use on your card before you take a photo. That choice could influence what you wear! Below you will find color suggestion suggestions from Tiny Prints. Click on each link with an open mind.

Color Themes to Consider for your Holiday Greeting:

  1. Traditional Red and Green
  2. Modern Shades of Traditional Holiday colors
  3. Blue and White
  4. Shades of Gray
  5. Polka Dots in Neutral shades
  6. Metallic!
  7. All the Colors in the Rainbow:
  8. Perhaps No Color at All--except those in your smiling face!

      My favorite of the numbered cards you showed was the second metallac one.

      Last year, we decorated our tree in all pale aqua, pale lime, and silver. I liked the way it turned out.
