The Best Photo Cards of 2016


*This is a guest post from my friend Amy Luna. Do you remember me talking about P Man’s girlfriend Claire? Well, Amy is Claire’s momma. I absolutely ADORED the family Christmas card that Amy sent out last year and, since she is a talented graphic designer that told me it was “easy as pie”, I ask her to share HOW she did it! Trust me….you will want to replicate this!*

Our Holiday Card 2011

Last holiday season was the first year that I didn’t have professional photos taken in time for our holiday cards. But then I was inspired by this blog post to set up a quick and easy back drop for taking my own photo for our holiday cards.

What You Will Need

– White sheet for the back drop

– White christmas lights

– Something dark to cover the windows {e.g. dark sheets, blanket}

– Any point and shoot camera

– Photoshop software {very little skills needed} or Picmonkey.com

– Happy kids

THE SET UP

We placed dark sheets and paper over the windows to darken our bedroom where the “photo shoot” took place.

Then I draped a plain white sheet along the back wall {above the bed’s headboard} with some of it flowing onto our bed. I also placed another white sheet over the top of the whole bed to create a plain white ground. We strung the christmas lights all across the white sheet back drop {the more lights the better}.
