Free Christmas Card Overlays, Vintage Logo Style

I had visions of glittery Christmas cards dancing in my head this season. But then our family got hit with a horrible cold, followed by a stomach bug.

So I opted for super simple holiday cards. Because sometimes, done is better than sparkling. I started with some awesome logo files, added some holiday cheer, inserted photos and sent them to the printers.

Now, I see that gold and glittery is quite the trend this year. Sometimes that makes me sad. But mostly it makes me happy that I opted for simplicity. And I wanted to share some of the logos I made, so you could make some simple holiday cards too.

There are so many different ways you can use these--I saved them in PSD files, so you can change the opacity, do a color overlay, etc.

Here is the same overlay as above, with a lower opacity, for example. And you can see what it looks like at the top, instead of the bottom of the photo.

And here's an example of one of the other logos on this free download. Click on the link for more logos. Happy card-making! And I'd love to see what you create with these logos.

Also, some photos don't work so well with the logos--they don't have enough dark or light spots for a logo to show up on. Here's how I handled that in our family card:
