The holidays are an especially perfect time to bring some homemade goodness into your life, and Etsy is our go-to "store" for all things handmade. While we had a hard time choosing just one Christmas item (have you seen the handmade Christmas ornaments on Etsy?!), we decided on Christmas cards. If you haven't sent out your annual holiday greetings, there's still time!
We've gathered three fabulous Christmas cards, plus matching return labels, from Etsy seller Sweet Bella to feature in this week's Etsy roundup. We think you'll have a hard time deciding on just one design. The good news is that you can buy a few different styles to mix up your greetings! You can find the seller, Lara, on Twitter, Facebook or her website.
Simple, sweet and festive, the Christmas Lights holiday card ($18 for a set of 10) features a strand of retro chunky holiday lights. As Etsy seller Lara says, they remind her of her childhood. We love a blast from the past, especially during the holidays, when fond memories make the time even more special.
If photo cards aren't for you but you're still looking to personalize your Christmas cards this year, try the understated Cozy Fireplace Christmas cards ($18 for a set of 10). Spread your merry holiday message with simplicity: Your family name, plus stockings to represent each of you.
In from the cold
The In from the Cold Christmas cards ($18 for a set of 10) are another great option for personalized holiday cards that are low-key. You select the number of mittens you'd like displayed on the card to represent your family members and the Etsy seller will also include your family name on the front.
While these aren't holiday cards, they definitely fit our Christmas card theme. Christmas return address labels ($7.50 for a set of 20) will save you a lot of time, plus they'll dress up the outside of your mailing envelope. The labels are designed to match the Christmas card you select.
