UPDATED FOR 2016!!

Sending and receiving cards is one of my favorite things about the holiday season, and I love making them each year to send to our friends and family. Today I thought I would share some free Chalkboard Christmas Card templates in case you wanted to use them too!   It’s super easy, and I’m going to show you how!

I use Adobe Photoshop Elements to create my cards, and it’s a very user-friendly program. I’ve been using it for years, and if you’re interested in creating photo projects and editing photos, I think it’s the best one! It’s super easy to create your own cards, and easily edit any other templates you might want to use.  If you have PSE, I’ve included the PSD file at the end of the post, and you can add all of your info.

If you don’t have Photoshop Elements, you can also use Pic Monkey, which is a free online photo editor. This is seriously just a couple of steps people, EASY and CUTE!

I’m going to use my cutey-cute sister’s family as an example…

1. After you download and save one of the free templates below, choose “edit a photo”, and then open up the file you saved. Click on the overlay icon in the left side bar (butterfly).

2.  Click on “your own” at the top, then you can browse for the picture you want to use on your card.

3.  When your picture is first opened on the page, it will be tiny, but you can easily re-size it by clicking on the picture, grabbing the edges, and expanding it as needed.

4. Once your picture is set, you can add the text for your names.  Click on the Text icon in the left sidebar (Tt), then select the font you want.  Change the color to white (#ffffff), or any other color you want! You can also re-size it, and move it around–however you like!

5. Once you have the text how you like it, make sure to SAVE it.  REMEMBER:  once you close the tab/browser, your work will be gone–it can’t be saved to finish later.  Finish your card, and save it!!

  1. Your family photo & your sister’s family photo are both beautiful!!! Sweet, beautiful families. I love the creative chalkboard card ideas, too!! Thank you so much for sharing! Love your site!

    1. Yes–you should be able to print them in different sizes. Just make sure you do a preview to see what it looks like before printing–it might line up a little differently. The two without the dot border might work a little better! Good luck, glad you love them! xoxo

  2. I’m using “merry and bright” for our christmas cards (thank you! :) can you suggest a good font on picmonkey to do our names beneath in? I’m not very artistic! :D

    1. I used the font Cursive Standard, or even Sacramento, which is a free font on PicMonkey. I like using a swirly font for the last name, and then a plain font for the first names below it for contrast. I used a typewriter font, which I love. I also like Century Gothic. Are you using Picmonkey? Try a few of the swirly fonts and see which one you like best. Good luck, and let me know if I can help more!!! xoxo
