Happy holidays friends! It’s that time of year where I create a unique holiday card to send to my friends and family. This year I kept it simple and repurposed an old giraffe illustration that I did a few years ago. I added some mistletoe from his mouth and a common holiday phrase and bam, the perfect Christmas card was made.

You can print the card on a standard 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper. It prints with two cards on one page so you’ll just need to cut the sheet in half and then fold the cards in half. If you don’t have a printer at home you can always print it at a local print shop such as staples or office depot. I do that from time to time myself especially when I’m low on ink. I would recommend to use a 110 lb cardstock for the cards so that they have a nice weight and durability to them.
When it comes to cutting the cardstock to separate the two cards, you can do that with a ruler and standard scissors. However, a paper cutter will make the job much easier. Seriously, I love mine!
If you have any confusion on where to cut and fold you can reference the detailed instructions that I posted in my watercolor heart card.
The cards will fit perfectly in standard A2 envelopes.
One thing that I’m going to buy before sending Christmas cards next year is a personalized return address stamp. Writing my return address on every envelope was annoying.
More Holiday Cards
This is my fourth year making my own cards for Christmas. I have a thing for illustrating cute animals so that’s most of what you’ll find in my free printable cards. Here are the three other holiday card options. Links to each of them are below the image.
Which card is your favorite? I think the puffin one is my favorite but that is probably because it reminds me of my trip to Iceland.
