MERRY EVERYTHING Holiday Cards to Print
This collection of Printable Christmas cards is just what you need for last minute gift giving or spreading holiday cheer–the non-denominational way.
The four card designs included are blank inside so you can Include your own thoughtful, personalized messages to your friends, family, classmates, or co-workers.
A generic holiday design is perfect for giving in the office and while some say that by saying “Merry Everything” it could be taken as “offensive” or dismissive to the intent of the holiday, some also believe that big love, acceptance & inclusion of the others is the foundation of the celebration.
There is beauty in inclusivity at Christmas when the intent of the card giver is to not only spread joy and cheer, but also include everyone in a festive holiday season–whatever they call it.
But I'd Rather say Merry Christmas!
It is OKAY If you don't like these Merry Everything Cards, don't agree, or don't appreciate not saying Merry Christmas, loud and proud to everyone. I respect that!
I hope you find something else that works for YOU and how you like to communicate and celebrate your holiday with people in your circle.
These Greeting Cards are for your PERSONAL USE. Don't sell, give away, share the link to download the printable cards etc. Thanks!
The Holiday Card Downloads
These cards are ready to print. I have included the trim lines to make it easier for you to get them trimmed and folded quickly. If you need more tips for printing or assembling these holiday cards, see below for more details and FAQ.
5×7 Printable Card Fronts
Use these printable card fronts to print on a pre cut and folded greeting card or, use them as a postcard or print for including in a 5×7 photo frame.
TRIMMING | CUTTING
Use a craft knife, trimmer, or scissors to trim your printables. The cutting tool you use to trim is your preference, they all get the job done.
TIP: When I trim my printed greeting cards, I like to use a ruler and a bone folder to indent where my craft knife needs to slide prior to cutting.
In these files, I left a full (but light) trim line around the images because I have found it to work best, even for those who may not have a paper trimmer and instead use handy-dandy scissors to cut this card out!
FOLDING THE CARD
Cardstock just needs some extra love when it comes to folding.
To fold your printed Christmas cards, use a bone folder to run along the edge of a ruler right on the center line and the end result is a perfect crease in the cardstock.
No bone folder? Use the spine of a book, a soft edged ruler or even an orange peeler to give that crisp fold instead of the wrinkled edge that comes with just trying to fold a piece of cardstock in half
Frequently Asked Questions
Have any questions? Check out the FAQ below. I hope to clear up some of your burning questions and if not, send me a message or leave a comment so I can help you with printing issues or general usage questions about these cards.
What does “Merry everything” Mean?
The holiday season is a magical time filled with traditions, festivity, and tremendous joy. As our communities get increasingly diverse, throwing out a “Merry Everything” is a way to embrace that diversity and offer inclusion to those around us who do not celebrate.
Merry everything is an all-encompassing way to honor and acknowledge all types of holiday traditions while expressing excitement for commercialized season festivities that everyone can and does partake in, regardless of religious affiliation.
This greeting does not take the place of merry Christmas, Yuletide Greetings, Feliz Navidad, Joyous Kawanza, or Diwali greetings–it's a simple, but inclusive way to greet a group of diverse friends and acquaintances.
Why not use the greeting you are most comfortable with this holiday season, feel free to change it up situationally.
