Fall is almost here, which means it's officially time for holiday card season! It's my favorite time of year at Real Card Studio, I love the variety of custom greetings we produce for our holiday clients. The families that come back season after season are my favorite, because every year it's a chance to out do the year before, and it really pushes us to try new things. Some of our clients are very creative, and have amazing style, and they come up with some exceptional ideas for amazing holiday cards.

For family photo cards, nothing looks more polished than choosing colors for the card from your portrait. This beautiful family picked out the warm autumn tones in the photo to come up with a chic color palette of copper, cocoa brown, apple and olive green. The light green surrounding the photo gives a bright pop of color to the front of the card, and the shine of the fig satin ribbon gives the card elegance befitting the portrait setting.

Real Card Studio's 2012 holiday collection will be in stores soon. We're very excited to add three new designs this year: Lychee, Wassail and Clementine. Check our website for stores that carry our holiday collection.

Real Card Studio partnered with Saint Clair Stationers in Greenwich, CT to create this handsome holiday card. Card photographed by Fresh Outtakes.
