Need some last minute Christmas cards? Free Printables

Do you give Christmas cards?  I am afraid I am not very good with giving them.  I usually wait until the last minute and then just say, “next year.”  Of course, when next year comes it’s always the same.  I do find myself wishing a had a card or two to place a gift card inside, so I designed a few easy cards to print, and thought you might could use a few as well.

Christmas presence card

These are easy as print, cut, and fold. 

By clicking on the image(s) below, you can download and save the jpg file to your computer and then you will need to open it in any program that will allow you to use a jpg.  Instructions on how to print using (a free program) are at the bottom of this post.

To print the chalkboard cards, use the borderless feature on your printer if you have it. That way it will print to the edge and you will not have a white border.

If you do not have a borderless feature on your printer, or if you are concerned about ink usage, the white card below will work without the borderless feature.

  Printing these with is very simple.

When you click on the Pixlr link, it will give you a list of choices.  Choose open image from computer.

Navigate to where you saved the image, click it and choose open.

The image will open.  Then go to file in the upper left hand corner and click on print.  You will then be in a print screen dialog box, go to the bottom of the screen and choose “print using system dialog…”, choose preferences to access the settings on your printer. Be sure to choose the landscape orientation.

Once you print, cut at 5 1/2 inches, then fold in half.  You can see the cut line on the chalkboard cards, so you just need to cut on that line.

If you like the Christmas presence nativity card, I have an 8 x 10 digital print download in my Etsy shop along with some other Christmas scripture chalkboard printables.

Thanks for stopping by.

Karen, thanks so much for the cards. I am also one to put off making my Christmas cards till the last minute. I would love to know what the names of the fonts are. I love both Christmas fonts! Are they your creations, purchased fonts or freebies found at a font factory online?
