Free Christmas Cards and Matching Holiday Gift Tags!


Happy Holidays, friends! I have some last minute Christmas goodies to share with you! Hopefully you can still use them! :) Last night I made these cheerful gift tags to add a little “merry” to our gifts this year. I wanted to give our presents a fun and personal touch with the “to” and “from” photos. Plus they’re great for Christmas morning if you have little ones who can’t read yet- once they see the labels they’ll know right away which ones are for them! :) These will be great for Miley and Howie. ;)

And I thought you guys might like ’em too! :) You can download these tags, add your own photos and names, and print away! :) They are sized at 2×3 so you can print them from home or at your friendly neighborhood photo lab as “wallet” sized.

After I made the labels, I thought it’d be so cool to have a matching Christmas cards and matching gift labels! :) So I made some Christmas card templates to match! :) I hope you guys like ’em and it’s not too late to use them! :) So sorry for being so last minute here! ;)

The cards are sized at 5.25″ x 7.25″ – That way you can print them as a 5×7 card (or photo) and still have a little extra spacing on the edges for “bleed” (you know how the printer sometimes cuts off the edges). Oh, and there’s one square one that’s 5.25 x 5.25 so you can print it as a 5×5 card! :)

Here they all are! There are four matching holiday gift tags and Christmas card template sets. To download, right click on the links below and choose “Save Link As” or “Save Target As”.

    I know this is not a new post, but I wanted to thank you for these free templates! I’m going to be using them this year for our first family Christmas card since our new baby! I’m so excited and have already downloaded them and played with them in Photoshop Elements to make sure I knew how they worked before the time came to create them. Now we just need to get our pictures done! Thanks, again, and I love your blog! read it almost every day!!

    Amanda, thank you so much for posting these super cute gift tags. Our families loved them! My husband’s grandma was so excited about hers that she actually started crying. :) They were a hit!

    Hi, Amanda!
    I’ve never posted a comment before, but am a seasoned blog stalker! :) I just wanted to thank you for posting these card templates. I was actually able to download the template, download gimp, insert text and my photos, and come up with great looking cards! I sent the png file to an online printing place and they came out so great (and much cheaper than if I hadn’t done them myself). I plan to do the same thing next year, only a little bit earlier. :) I’ve also downloaded many of your free fonts and used your instructions to add them to my blog. Your directions are so easy to follow. So thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to post all of these things. Merry Christmas!!!

    Hi Amanda I love your site you have been so helpful to me starting a blog with the cute fonts and tutorials. I absolutely love these and used one as my header on my blog and already have the pastel one ready for January-please check it out if you get a chance. Merry Christmas & Blessings to you and your family :-)

  10. Kweta

    Just wanted to let you know that I was able to download the cards with your new instructions without any problems. Thank you so much for sharing!! Merry Christmas!

    Thank you so much for sharing something quite so precious. The time and attention AND the talent that it took to create these, you spent, knowing you, knowing full well that you were going to give them away. Your heart just shines, Amanda and so does your creative abilities.

    These cards and tags are incredibly gorgeous and YOU my dear, are an Angel for sharing them with me. Thank you so very much ~ from the heart. You are amazing and your creative abilities are even more amazing…however your willingness to “give” is probably the *most* amazing. You’re a special Gal, Amanda and I DO HOPE Kevin KNOWS that!!

    BIG Hugs and Many Heartfelt Thanks…


    Merry, Merry Christmas to you both…

    These are so stinkin’ cute. Thanks!
    Also, I had to bust out laughing when I saw that you can make a font from someone’s handwriting. For YEARS, I have had tons of people (even strangers) tell me that my handwriting needs to be a font. :D In fact, when I would write a prescription for the doctor I worked for, many times the pharmacist would call to make sure that the RX had not been printed on a printer. HA HA
    I would love to have you make my handwriting into a font….what do I need to do?

  13. Lorrie

    Amanda, not sure if you read your old post or not, but I posted a question in the how to make a blog background. Sorry it went through twice (I didn’t think the first one went through.)

    Thanks for all this free cool stuff. I’m so loving your blog! I’ve used the how to change your post titles, how to make a blog background, downloaded a bunch of images and a few recipes! Really AWESOME!

  14. Lorrie

    I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all you’ve taught me through this website. I just completed my first blog background today.. I’m so excited.. I used your tutorials on how to make a blog and how to use a cute font on the post titles… I’ve also downloaded a ton of fonts and other goodies. Thanks again..

  15. Mom-Friday

    I am new to your site and I got here through your ‘mystylebackgrounds’, and i am loving everything here! you’re so generous with your creations…i will surely link you up and visit more often.

  16. Farmgirl Chaos

    Thanks so much! These are fun designs. I made 5 photo cards (including mine) this year, and would have loved to use these. Hopefully next year!

  17. Paz

    I am from argentina and really can’t afford buying all the wonderful digiscrap things you fin online!! thanks!
    Feliz Navidad!

  18. Kweta

    I love these cards but I can’t open the link. It just shows me the bigger picture. Do you have another way for me to download them. I was on your site the other day and I don’t remember any problems. Thanks, Kweta

  19. Terry D

    Thank you Amanda! These are so cute! I really like the wreaths.
    Happy Holidays!! btw…You guys look great! Congrats on the weigh loss!

  20. Melanie

    These are so cute! Amanda, when I clicked on the download links they just popped up as a bitmap. There wasn’t any downloading involved. Is there something wrong with the link? Thanks!

  21. Becky

    Totally awesome…Do you still make handmade Christmas cards to send out ? That’s what I do but these would be so much more personal. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas !!

  22. Brooke

    Thanks so much for this. Actually last year I did do a similar tag for our niece who is too young to read. Although mine was no where near as cute!

  23. Sara

    I used your templates to create a Christmas card and think it came out pretty good especially since I had no idea what I was doing. I posted it in my blog.

  24. Amy Johnson

    These are awesome! What a fabulous idea. And no need to apologize for being “last minute”…first, I haven’t finished my gift shopping yet. ; ) Second, you are generous to share these for free with all of us!

  25. MariaB

    Thank you so much for sharing… these are great! I’ve been looking around at Christmas cards and nothing has caught my attention until yours!

    Thanks again & Merry Christmas!

  26. Jennifer Kirk

    So cute! And very kind of you to share! Makes me wish I hadn’t already printed our Christmas cards! I may be using those tags, though, or at least stealing the idea of the “to and from” photos! Very clever! Thanks!

  27. Sherry

    OK, so color me embarrassed. Please disregard message #27. I tried from this page instead of my email and it worked just fine!

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Can’t wait to use them.

    Merry Christmas

  28. Sherry

    These are so cute and thank you for sharing. The only one that I could get was the Wreath – and it is beautiful. All the others came down as .asp files and my cumputer doesn’t know how to open them. Any suggestions?

  29. Vickie

    Those are so cool and pretty! Thank you for sharing them! I hope I get photoshop for Christmas so I can start using all this cool stuff!

  30. Debi

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…. I just love these .png files. I’m working on a Chritmas Card with my grandsons picture in it. Can’t wait to finish it..
    Thank you again for a wonderful website….I just sent it to my sister in NY and told her to get on here NOW!!!! ha ha ha
    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas…

  31. Melanie

    Thanks so much! You never cease to amaze me with your creativity and generosity! I am very much looking forward to using these on my gifts this year! Have a wonderful Holiday!!!


    THESE ARE FABULOUS!!! I will definitely use the tags and will try to make some cards too! I have always wanted to try making my own templates but I havent had the time or patience yet so THANK YOU for doing the hard work. Are they really easy fill in the photos in photoshop or should I look for a tutorial somewhere

  33. Barb Boyack

    Amanda, these are just AMAZING! I can’t wait to try to use these..I am still fledgling with this these templates and all, but how nice to have a personalized tag on the gifts this year..Lord knows I have enough pictures!!!

  34. snarflemarfle

    These are just darling! Last year I made little tags with the picture of the “To” person so my then almost three year old could help pass out gifts! These will be precious this year!

    Oh, and the Sugar Cookie 5×7 card saved as an HTML document instead of a PNG like the rest. Will it still work?

    Thank you so much!!

  35. Wendi

    LOVE them!I got all 150 of my Christmas cards for free this year. But I’ve already saved your adorable templates for next year! I can’t wait to use them!! Thank you!

  36. Anna

    These are absolutely fantastic! Is it just me, or does the “Download 5×7 Card Template” on “Sugar Cookie Frames” have an invalid link?

  37. Lindsay Maddox

    Amanda, thank you SO much for sharing these! I’m absolutely in LOVE with the Sugar Cookie card design. I’ll post a link once I’ve finished my cards – too cute! Thanks again :)
