Use a free Christmas card template this year to create a one-of-a-kind Christmas card that you can send to everyone you know. These templates look great and will save you lots of money doing it yourself instead of having them made for you. You'll also appreciate the fact that you did it all yourself, creating your own handmade holiday tradition.

You may find that when you download these free Christmas card templates that some of the fonts used in the card aren't installed in your computer. You can try to track these down and download them or use a free holiday font to complete the card.

After you're finished with the free Christmas card template, you can print out your finished card. It will look best printed on photo paper but cardstock can work too. You can upgrade the look by having them printed inexpensively at a store near you.

If you don't have envelopes to fit your cards, you can easily make your own with matching address labels. To include a longer update on your family's big events, you can even include a Christmas-themed newsletter with your card.

If these Christmas card templates look like too much work, you can find other free printable Christmas cards that are all ready to go.
