Somehow, November is almost halfway over, and the holidays are quickly approaching! There are lots of opportunities to make more sustainable choices during the holidays. One of my favorite ways is by choosing to send sustainable electronic holiday cards rather than printed ones!
You can read more here about why I think electronic holiday cards are better than printed cards, but in short: They are less expensive, easier to send, just as attractive, and of course more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Today I’m sharing 10 holiday greeting e-cards that I’m crushing on this year over at Greenvelope. I hope this will give you some inspiration as you start to think about your own sustainable holiday cards this year!
Greenvelope is an electronic invitation and e-card service that emulates the experience of opening a “traditional” printed invitation. I love that they focus on exclusive designs by indie artists. These are truly gorgeous designs, not run-of-the-mill holiday greeting cards. Greenvelope is also incredibly easy to use and offers features like tracking, RSVPs, ticketing, and more that are helpful whether you are using Greenvelope personally or for your business.
My favorite thing about Greenvelope is that in addition to offering an environmentally friendly card and invitation service, they contribute a portion of all of their sales to environment-focused nonprofits like the National Park Foundation and Mountains to Sound. It’s great to be able to choose to spend your money with organizations that are also investing in causes outside of their own bottom line. Oh and also, I saw that they’re offering 20% off now through January 15, 2020 with code HOLIYAYS….you’re welcome!
Here are 10 designs from Greenvelope that I am loving for the holidays this year:
It’s no secret that I love a photo card for my own Christmas card. I like that this one is classic and simple, but also has a fun and festive font. The red envelope really makes it pop!
I love this card because of the hand painted look. That branch is so beautiful! The design work behind this card really makes it stand out from the crowd.
I love how the photo on this card is smaller and feels understated; perfect for a minimalist as the title of the card suggests! The color blocking gives it a modern feel.
This Merry Life
This card is fun and will definitely stand out from the green and red crowd with the non-traditional pink and teal accents. It’s a great card for showcasing a really excellent photo.
This card is a great way to display multiple photos (especially if you have a large family or want to show photos of grandkids or other extended family) without looking overcrowded. The white background and simple message are aesthetically pleasing. And that envelope liner is just way too fun!
Let’s be real: I love this card because of the gorgeous watercolor millennial pink! The scripty font, delicate snowflakes, and glittery silver envelope are so feminine and lovely.
I love the evergreen design on this card–it is contemporary without being overly modern. The navy backdrop of the card will make your holiday photo pop!
Snow Day Classics
The graphics on this card are so cute! Who doesn’t want to fantasize about skating around an idyllic pond in a matching scarf and mittens, then enjoying some warm hot chocolate? The winter blue is a fun touch.
I love how the plaid on this card feels casual and cozy, which is exactly how I want the holidays to feel!
This card, with its classic red and vintage typewriter, feels nostalgic while simultaneously featuring modern color blocking and a modern font. It has a mid-century modern vibe to me. The cookies and cocoa are so cozy!

Are y’all loving any of these designs as much as I am? Will you be sending an electronic holiday card this year?
