Christmas in July: Customizing The Cutest Cards With Basic Invite

by Courtney El-Ghoul

Hi Everyone!

Okay, if you guys have been around for a while or even if you follow my daily insta stories, you know that we are super into Christmas, and let’s be honest… pretty much all holidays. So, it’s no surprise then that the girls started singing holiday songs at the beginning of June… I can’t blame them! I mean, amidst a pandemic thinking about the Holidays and future celebrations, in general, is a nice distraction for sure! Which totally inspired me for today’s post.

Creating Amazing Holiday Cards

So let me dive right into what I want to chat with you guys about today, Holiday Cards! You know, I love a good party, so with all this extra time on my hands, I figured maybe I should start planning early this year. Perhaps I will even send out two christmas cards? A “Christmas in July” if you will. I always love seeing family photos of friends and loved ones, and now more than ever I think it would be something really fun to do. Once I got started down the rabbit hole of cards I couldn’t stop. I even started designing the girls’ next birthday party card since they are determined that this mermaid theme is happening! I know things won’t be the same, but we can still celebrate with family. Heck, I even designed a BBQ invite, in the hopes we can have a small get together this summer with some family/friends. Life doesn’t have to stop, and we can take the opportunity to just get a head start designing the future instead of procrastinating until the last minute! I have definitely done that one before! 

Sooooo I came across Basic Invite, and honestly, I have had so much fun playing around with the different christmas party invitation template and other designs they offer, and ordering my samples to preview. They came super quick, and it was such an easy process.

What I love about Basic Invite

Here is a little background on the company. They are one of the few websites I have found that allow you pretty much, unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you have your design, you can play around with the colors of each element on the card. I had so much fun with this feature! They have almost 200 color options, so I could get the cards to look exactly how I wanted them to. I LOVE that you can get a printed sample before you place the final order! Isn’t it the worst when you order like 200 cards and then when you get it, it’s not at all what you expected. Oh, and another thing I love, is that if I wanted something more festive they also offer foil cards, I love the rose gold option! Super pretty.

They also offer over 40 different colors of envelopes, so you can get that perfect match for your invitation. They are peel and seal, which is a must for me! I refuse to lick an envelope! Ha, it’s so gross, and now I just think of COVID!!!

Oh, and the icing on the cake is they have an address capturing service. You can share a link via social media to request friends/family’s addresses. This makes it so much easier during the design process, you can get the recipient address printing at no cost! No brainer for me. Check them out on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, & Twitter !

Anyway, I thought I would share my experience in case you guys want to get the ball rolling on ordering some Friends & family holiday cards 🙂
