Why send Christmas cards? The answer is quite simple…we can think of no better way to honor the traditions that make Christmas such an important part of our lives. In our world of emails, texts, and tweets, opening the mailbox to find a handwritten card just makes the heart feel a little merrier. Sending our Retro Christmas Card Co. cards to friends and family says, “I remember”. I remember the mesmerizing bubble lights on Mom’s tree, I remember the scrumptious aroma of Grandma’s gingerbread and the unbearable anticipation of Christmas morning, and I remember you!
And though our love for these magical Christmas card traditions runs deep, the hustle and hurry of the season sometimes makes us wonder if we’ll ever get around to conquering our card list. You too? No worries. Here are a few ideas to help get this to-do done with a fun retro style!
Pick a card that speaks your language. A card can say a lot about its sender. Our retro collection can’t be beat for nostalgia lovers on the sending and receiving end. Order your perfect match today.
Check your list. Update addresses, names, etc. Keep a stash of stamps and extra cards on hand to send out in response to last minute cards you may receive.
Make a good thing better with embellishments. Our little red envelopes bring merry to mailboxes on their own, but a sparkling snowflake stamp or a festive seal will guarantee your card will be the first one they open. Add another layer of fun inside with glitter, small bows or charms on the cards. Sprinkle in a few ‘snow’ flurries before sealing with hopes that it won’t land you on the naughty list!
Begin a new tradition. Invite your crafty friends for cookies + carding. Imagine all the sweet possibilities…
Prefer to go it alone? Find a cozy spot near the tree, put on our playlist, pour a glass of Christmas cheer and enjoy the magic of personally wishing friends and family all the best this holiday season.
