And Just Like That…Fall Is In The Air

With a title like that, I am sure you are expecting me to talk about the leaves, the crisp cool mornings, how it is super dark (and somewhat scary) out on my morning runs… BUT, you would be mistaken! I am going in a totally different direction this time!

With the start of fall, comes the rush of the holiday season. I am sure there is a study somewhere that shows that time actually speeds up during this time of year and if you close your eyes for too long, the year will be over and we’ll be ringing in 2017.

It is because of this time-moving-at-warp-speed thing, that I fail Every. Single. Year. to get my Christmas cards out on time (on time = before Christmas). Last year, I didn’t even get them out by Valentine’s Day!

I stumbled upon Basic Invite late in the summer when researching holiday cards and I love the many creative cards with fun colors and cool fonts.

Keep reading to see how you can win 50 free customizable cards from Basic Invite!

Basic Invite has almost unlimited color options with over 160 different colors!  Once you select a card design, you can change the color of each element on the card and get instant previews online. Speaking of colors, even the envelopes come in over 40 different color options!

Basic Invite Color Options

This is an example of the editor box. Once you select a color or element you want to customize, the options seem endless!

In addition, Basic Invite lets you order a printed sample of the actual card. I don’t know about you, but I am a fan of touch. I have to feel everything (my husband always complains about this when he shops with me). Who knew this would be so important when selecting cards, wedding invitations, baby announcements?! You get to actually feel the paper, the embossed lettering, the envelopes (which are peel and stick, I might add)!

Basic Invite has a huge library of cards ranging from thank you notes, invitations, save-the-dates, bridal or baby shower, graduation…you name it! I just happen to be a fan of Christmas cards!

Here are a couple of the examples that I created on the site. Now to narrow it down to my favorite!

Until Next Time,

  1. I love sending Christmas cards – they are a fun way to share a few family memories with family and friends with your holiday greetings. I always have December 15th as my deadline to myself to get my cards in the mail. 🙂

  2. We do send out holiday cards to friends and family. As far as sending them out on time…some years are better than others 🙂 I aim to try and send out early December. Thanks for the chance to win!
