21 Heart-warmingly Lovely Christmas Cards

Send season’s greetings with this crop of festive and beautiful cards.

Along with most things in our lives right now, Christmas 2020 plans remain up in the air. We do, however, feel bold enough to make one prediction: that we’ll see a surge in the buying and sending of Christmas cards. For one thing, as the world remains uncertain, there is great comfort to be taken from these ages-old traditions. For another, if we cannot all be together to celebrate, we can at least send our love and best wishes to those we can’t be with. In fact, in the face of adversity, we’re all the more determined to make festive that which might otherwise be gloomy. After all, Christmas is about good will – in all circumstances – and sending a beautiful card as a symbol of that is about as perfect a place to start as any.
