Take a little bit of stress out of the holidays and save time by using these two free original greeting card templates. Each card is in PDF format ready to print from your color printer. Adjust as needed and print on 8.5x11 paper and fold twice for vertical, side-fold cards. I printed mine at 720dpi on high quality inkjet paper.

The best holidays are shared with friends features two friendly snow people on the cover and Merry Christmas on the inside.

The best presents are family and friends has a decorated tree and wrapped present on the cover. The inside greeting says Happy Holidays.

Note: When folded a piece of the tree is on the crease. That's intentional.

4.5x6 Envelope
The above card templates are designed to print on letter size paper folded in quarters. After making the cards I realized I needed envelopes. I wanted an envelope I could make from a single letter size sheet of paper. The resulting template has been proportioned to meet US Postal requirements for standard letter mail and can be printed on an 8.5" x 11" page. The finished envelope is 4.5" x 6" — just right for homemade cards made from letter size paper.
