Leveraging eCards for a More


Graphic holiday card with ornament background. Text readsWhen you visualize the holiday season, you probably think about roasting chestnuts and twinkling lights and chillaxing moments with a mug of hot cocoa. Instead, it can be utter madness, as we all know. Hosting holiday parties, shopping, more shopping, and working long hours as you stretch toward that luscious winter break. Who has time to gather the family around for a few holiday pics?

If you’ve found yourself down to the wire, try making a graphical holiday card in PicMonkey. Below are some quicky examples our designers whipped up to spark some inspiration. All cards are sized 5” x 7”.

Some cards say all they need with just a quick turn of phrase. Sample some of our favorites: “Be Merry, ” “Comfort & Joy, ” “Oh What Fun, ” “Happy Festivus” or “Where’s My Figgy Pudding, Earthling?” Be off-key or traditional but make the holiday greeting the focal point of your card design.

Tips: For this card we applied the ornament-shaped Holiday Cutout from the SantaLand theme and decreased the cutout size to 0% so the swatch covers the entire canvas. We then applied a rectangular Geometric overlay (using the color picker to match the overlay to the ornaments) and the “Be Merry” message.Graphic of hanging ornament overlays. Text reads, This text is Playfair, found in SantaLand.

Take our overlays all the way

The details on this festive card were created with just one overlay and a bit of text. Can you say simple? This is a great one if you’re cramped for time. The overlay we used here is located in Stockings, but you can find other cheery candidates in Santa’s Buddies or Stuffers.

Graphic card reading,Tips: Begin a card like this with the blank canvas in Design. Have a hex code at the ready for your canvas color, or match the hex code of your overlay, using the color picker. For your greeting, have fun with a font mix and match. For this card, we used Geo Sans Light and Budmo Jiggler.

Ornaments delight

This little number is probably our most involved card but it’s so sweet, it’s worth the extra couple steps. Use various PicMonkey overlays to decorate your card. Ornaments, Stockings or an arrangement of Gift overlays would work perfectly. Falling snowflakes from our Winterland theme on a blue or gray blank canvas would also look lovely, if we do say so ourselves. Once you have your overlays arranged just so, select one of our eight pre-baked Season’s Messages.
