I’m thrilled to share our family’s Christmas cards this year and how easy it is to order cards from Dixie Design, an online source for refined, ready-made stationery that y’all are going to love just as much as I do! Plus, a few helpful etiquette tips as you think about your family’s card this year.
Dixie Design was inspired by (founder) Jennifer Hunt’s desire for custom calligraphy Christmas cards with beautiful art, without the big price tag. Their customizable cards have the same personality as handcrafted cards but, thankfully, customers don’t have to deal with a long production time or hefty design fee. Most orders arrive within 7-10 days after purchase – yay!
Dixie Design’s 2017 Holiday Collection is every Southern mama’s dream. Each card is hand-designed by one of Dixie Design’s skilled artists who are chosen for their gifts in illustration, calligraphy, painting, and hand-lettering. Once you choose your design, it is so easy to upload your photo to their site, add a personalized message, and check Christmas cards off your list.
This year I chose a beautiful card designed by the talented Gina Langford. I have admired Gina on Instagram for a while so I’m tickled that I now have a Christmas card designed by her! When my mom and I first saw these cards, we cried they are so special.
Not only is it our Christmas card, but it is Louise’s birth announcement, too. (Several of Dixie Designs cards can be used like this!).
The detailing is just stunning. Thank you so much, Gina and Dixie Design, for this keepsake of a card.
Here are a few more of my favorite Dixie Design cards this year.This Christmas Botanical design by by Holly Hollon is so elegant.
This Berries and Bow Wreath design by Eden Flora is classic red and green.
I love the way the green and blue pair together in this Watercolor Border card by Holly Hollon. This would be a great card if you want a timeless look, but also want to break away from the red and green!
If you are going to be hosting a Christmas party this year, make sure you check out Dixie Design for their invitations, too! I love these two designs for invitations! The first is the Staffordshire Dogs Gold Invitation and the second is the Pineapple Invitation. These would both be perfect for your holiday gathering!
And to help you as you design your cards this year, I asked Holly Hollon of Dixie Design a few Christmas card etiquette questions:
Q: Do you address to “Mr. and Mrs. John Smith” or “The Smith Family.” (Does it matter?)
Thank you so much to Dixie Design for gifting me these beautiful Christmas cards. I can’t wait to share them with my friends and family!
