Sarah Dawn Designs {Ends 12/10}

As a photographer and a designer, having access to beautiful Christmas cards is important to me. While I can make them myself, it’s hard for me to find the time to do so. And if I start, the perfectionist side of me won’t let me stop until it’s completely perfect.

It’s so much easier to be able to go to a website, find the perfect design, customize it if necessary, pop in my picture, and order my cards.

I have known Sarah of Sarah Dawn Designs for several years now. She has an amazing talent, and every design she offers proves just that.

For this review, I was asked to pick out a Christmas card, order it, download it, and customize it to my family’s needs.

I opted for this card:snowflake cardIt’s such a cute card, and since there’s already grey in it, I knew I could customize it to match our family photo exactly. I opted for the .psd file because I knew I would be making changes to it. Had I needed red and grey, I would have ordered the .jpg file and had Sarah change the name for me.

The ordering process was so easy. In less than 5 minutes, I placed my order and downloaded the file. I opened the card in my photo editing program. Another five minutes later, I had this:

my Christmas cardIt looks awesome! I love the way it turned out, and it only took me a few minutes to do. Here are the changes I made:

  1. Changed the font to a script font, changed the color of “Merry Christmas,” and added a shadow behind our family name.
  2. Changed the colors of the red snowflakes to blue and purple to match the kids’ outfits.
  3. Added in my picture.

What do you think? Adorable, isn’t it? I’ll send my order off to my photo lab this week, and I’ll actually be on the ball for sending out Christmas cards this year!
