A Giving Tuesday Gift From Us to You

On this Giving Tuesday, we want to give you a gift of thanks. We’ve designed several holiday and new year cards — shown below — that you can edit with your own photos and name.

We hope you enjoy these and find them useful. And please share your finished products with us — we love seeing all of the families!

How It Works

Creating your personalized holiday card is easy, you only need to type in your name and replace the photo with your own!

These are all laid out as 5×7 (portrait) or 7×5 (landscape). Each template has two “pages,” one for the front (or as a single image) and one for the back if you intend to print these as a double-sided flat card. If you’re new to Canva, you’ll be prompted to set up a free account to edit your card design.

1. Click the button next to the design you want to edit.

2. Click the Use Template button.

3. Log in, or sign up if you’re new to Canva.

2. Edit Your Card

To personalize your card, you’ll replace the default photo and edit your name.

Replace the Photo

Each design template includes a front and back design. The back side design can be used if you want to print these as a double-sided flat card — you’ll need to upload three additional photos for this option.

You can watch upload your own image, or:

1. In Canva, upload your photo at Uploads > Upload media. You’ll need to upload three additional photos if you plan to use the second page as the back side of a double-sided flat card.

2. On the card, delete the “YOUR PHOTO HERE” text box.

3. Drag your uploaded photo over the photo you’re replacing and release. Repeat for back side.

Editing the Name

In the “From the {Name} Family” text box, replace “{Name}” with your family name. Or replace everything after “From” with your own wording (e.g., From Mary and John).

3. Save Your Card as an Image or MP4 Video

You can save your card as either an image or as a video.
