How to Create a Christmas Card Easily

Cards never go out of style; online platforms make life easier for those who want to create photo holiday cards for uncle, aunt, father, mother, and everyone without stressing.

Check out some of the most used websites for making digital Christmas cards.


Canva, already one of the darlings of those who need to create simple and creative layouts for yesterday, intuitively has a section dedicated to digital Christmas cards. It works the same, and you can import images and photos to create a special card.

Basic Invite

Basic Invite is a platform that offers customizable invitations, cards, and paper products, perfect for special occasions like the holiday season. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make your Christmas card without any hassle:

Start by visiting and either log in to your existing account or create a new one. Choose the Christmas card templates by searching on the bar. You’ll find a variety of elegant and festive Christmas themes to choose from. Upload a beautiful photo of your family or loved ones. Include a special message or holiday greeting on your card. Customize the text’s font, color, and size to match your preferences.

Personalize your card by changing the background color, pattern, and other design elements. Basic Invite offers various paper types, cutting styles, and elegant details. You can add optional features like foil printing or embossing to make your card special.

Prepare your cards and send them to your loved ones. With your personalized design, you’re sure to bring smiles to their faces during the holiday season.

Adobe Spark

Adobe Spark is an interesting tool because it is from Adobe and can be used for free, even if you are not a subscriber. Right at the beginning, you already determine which platform the card will be produced for (formats: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, landscape, poster, and square), which makes it even easier to output the card and can be a plus.

The images displayed in highlights promoting Christmas cards could be more attractive, but there are really cool options. Type “Christmas” into the search and/or other Christmas terms. It’s a shame they didn’t make that part easier and put more highlights in the home game this season.


Crello is very similar to Canva and Spark in structure. However, if you’re looking for inspiration, this option has fewer Christmas options than expected.
