The holiday card is one of those seasonal delights that may be just as fun to give as to receive—especially when the creativity is kicked up a notch. Indoors or out, we thought up cute, clever, and clickable ways to close out one year and welcome the next. Flip through the slideshow for totally doable inspiration (And Happy Holidays!).

Make the Most of Fall

If we’re on top of our game, we’re usually taking our holiday photos when it’s peak fall rather than winter. If you don’t want to hold out for that first snow or you live somewhere milder, throw those autumn leaves into the air and capture some seasonal (and childhood) magic.
