Christmas Card 2017

This is our family's 2017 Christmas card. I am ridiculously happy with it. 

My sister-in-law took the photo of us during our nephew's wedding, then I designed the card using PicMonkey. Each of the colors is pulled from the photo. The blue background is the same as Trevor's shirt. The red is from his tie. The darker blue is from Steve's tie, and the greens are from the trees behind us. The card was really fun to make, and easy too. And I think it looks better than the ready-made templates that are available online. I uploaded the flattened image to Costco.com and got 50 cards for $15. Custom cards for 30¢ each? Quite a bargain!


  1. You did a great job, Cindy! It is a wonderful picture of the three of you.

  2. Yes, it does look way better than any ready-made templates. Well worth the effort of creating it yourself and doing the color-matching. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
