Holiday Cards That Are Anything But Basic

With the holidays approaching faster than Santa's sleigh, sending out festive greeting cards is just about our favorite activity around this time of the year. It's true that nothing communicates well wishes better than a handwritten note, but basic designs just won't cut it — no one is that excited about sticking a Christmas tree graphic with "Season's Greetings" in cursive font up on the fridge for all to see.
So instead of spreading cheer with boring pine and holly stationary, we rounded up a collection of gorgeous to humorous holiday cards this year. Uncap your favorite felt-tipped pens and start licking those Forever Stamps, because these festive greetings are holiday gold.
