Basic Invite Foil Holiday Cards

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!” My favorite time of the year!! I know it’s a little early for Christmas, and you’re thinking come on, it’s only October. But Christmas will be here before you know it, 76 days to be exact. So now is the time to start your shopping and most importantly - it’s time to start thinking HOLIDAY CARDS!!

Basic Invite is my go to stationary company when it comes to Christmas and Holiday cards! They offer a HUGE variety of over 500 Christmas and Holiday card designs. They have everything you need from Professional Holiday cards, 2018 Christmas Cards, Creative Holiday Cards.

Here in our household, we celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah. My husband is Jewish and I am Catholic. We usually send out a basic holiday card to our friends and family, but this year I got both, Hanukkah and Christmas cards to send out. I also created a Holiday card to send out with our beloved pup, Oliver on it.

Basic Invite Pros:

  • Custom Samples - I initially ordered a few of Basic Invite’s custom samples when I first found them. They are one of the few websites that actually allows customers the ability to order printed samples of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before finalizing an order.

  • Almost Unlimited Colors - You can choose from almost unlimited colors online with the ability to instantly preview it online. After selecting a design, there are 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the last detail.

  • Address Capturing Service - With Basic Invite, you can simply share a link on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to request you friends and family’s addresses. These will then be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. A huge plus offered by Basic Invite is recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders!

  • Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with the invitations they offer. There are over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes. Your stationary will stand out even before it is opened! I don’t know about you, but I HATE licking envelopes! All of the envelopes are peel and seal, so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one! It’s the little things like this ;)


Here is our Hanukkah card I got to send out to our families. I chose to use our engagement photos for this one.


Here is the puppy holiday card with our Goldendoodle, Oliver! I fell in love with the caption, “May your Holidays be Warm & Fuzzy.” We used a picture from last year’s Christmas. I got the majority of our holiday cards in this print just because it has Oliver on it and he’s the cutest! This card will definitely make our friends and family smile from ear to ear.


When we got married last year, we decided to send out this Holiday card with our wedding photo on it. I love the caption that reads, “Married & Merry.” I changed it to read, “Married & Bright.” That’s another thing I love about Basic Invite - You can change the captions to have them read whatever you desire. You can add phrases or take out certain ones.


This year I thought it would be nice to send out Professional Holiday cards to all of my brand partners. I think this adds a special touch to companies I am working with as a brand ambassador. Professional or business holiday cards create that personal touch and everyone deserves a holiday card during the holiday season. It’s important to include your coworkers or boss. Basic Invite offers so many different styles. I chose to send out this professional holiday card from my blog this holiday season.


I love New Years! NYE is actually me and my husbands dating anniversary. He asked me to officially be his girlfriend 9 years ago on NYE. Now that we are married, we typically send out a holiday card, but this year I thought it would be fun to send out Happy New Year cards too! When I think of New Year’s, I think of glitz and glam and sparkle. This was the perfect card to add foil to. At Basic Invite, you can customize any foil design in gold, rose gold, or silver. Customers can also choose flat or raised foil. I chose Basic Invite’s flat gold foil for this card. You can find their wide variety of Foil Holiday Cards here.
