diy holiday card display

We stepped into our friend Jodie’s house a few months ago, in the middle of summer, and saw her collection of Christmas cards were still up on display in the foyer of her home. Although showcased in a cute manner, it had been 6 months after the holidays had ended. When we asked Jodie why she still had them up, she simply replied that people go to a lot of work to capture the perfect family photo then carefully choose a card to compliment that picture and it’s a waste to put them away after just a few short weeks. We thought about it and immediately agreed!  We made this easy DIY holiday card display to keep ours up year round too!  Read the full how by scrolling down.

This year my family chose to have our pictures taken in the soft sandy wash in the small cozy town we had recently moved from. I laughed out loud when our “best” photo of entire family came back to us from the photographer… with two rambunctious boys, ages 4 and 2, it captured their silly personalities perfectly!  I wanted to pair it with a Christmas card that would match not only the color scheme of our apparel in the photo but also the photo orientation, (vertical, horizontal or square.)
