It’s hard to pick a Featured Favorite in December because we see so many great cards at this time of year. But this humorous New Year’s card caught our eye, especially because the order came through well before Christmas. Turns out that Stacie, the card’s creator, had her mind set on sending a New Year’s card and the dress-up lips and mustache were just the touch of silliness she was looking for.
Our Dressed Up for the New Year card offers the option to put a silly mustache or lips on your photos. Stacie said she had never considered New Year’s card ideas before, but loved this concept when she saw it. “We had a really tough year,” she explains. “For us, the focus is on next year being much less stressful!” That would also explain her choice of text on the card: “2012 Resolution: Less stress. More silly.” Good luck with your resolution, Stacie. We think you’re off to a good start!
Today is December 21st. Perhaps it’s time to admit that I just might not make my December 23rd deadline for sending Christmas cards. Considering the fact that I haven’t purchased them yet, that seems to be the wisest course of action.
I am not ready to admit total defeat, however. There is still time to send a New Year’s Photo card. A holiday greeting is a holiday greeting, right? So what if the holiday isn’t Christmas? Minor detail. Besides, you can have more fun and be more creative with New Years photo cards.
For one thing, you don’t have to stick to red and green (not my favorite colors anyway). And New Year’s greetings are nonsectarian, which makes them perfectly okay to send to anyone—business associates, neighbors and all. You can pick a timeline card and include all the highlights of 2011, or pick one great photo and have fun designing your message around it.
