Greeting card designs to get you in the holiday spirit

What comes to mind when you design a card for the holidays? We recently ran a contest on 99designs asking for a modern, light-hearted greeting card design that we could mail to some of our most valued customers for the holidays.

Designers flooded in with a wintry mix of stars, snowflakes, Santa hats and holiday decor that we absolutely loved. The entries were so great, in fact, it was hard to pick just one! While bittergrace took home the prize for her minimal grey and blue snowflake card, here’s some more of our favorite entries in no particular order.


Designer: bittergrace
