The countdown to Christmas has begun! Sending holiday cards is a wonderful tradition to spread holiday cheer. This season, we’ve designed several cute Christmas message cards, whether it's for your mom, dad or any loved ones on your list. 

Besides, if your gift can't arrive on time for the holidays, don’t panic, take a deep breath. You can put a picture of the gift in a gift box together with your Christmas message card. Everyone deserves to receive a holiday gift, and this way can at least hold a person over until the actual gift shows up.

Our Christmas card templates are a single-fold design to create a 5x7 inch card size. Since these Christmas message cards are totally free and printable – all you need to do is download, print, cut, fold, and attach your photo to the card by glue stick or tape. Then write a personal message thanking them for being a part of your life.
