How to make a Christmas card with Adobe Express.

Start with Inspiration.
We hook you up with thousands of professionally designed templates, so you’re never starting from a blank canvas. Search by platform, task, aesthetic, mood, or color to have fresh inspiration at your fingertips; once you find a graphic to start from, tap or click to open the document in the editor.
Customize your template.
There are lots of ways to personalize your Christmas card templates. Change the text and font. Sub out the imagery with your photos. Or browse from thousands of free images right in Adobe Express. Spend as little or as much time as you want to make the graphic your own. With a premium plan, you can even auto-apply your brand logo, colors, and fonts, so you’re always #onbrand.
Amp up the flair.
It’s easy to add extra flair and personality to your projects with our exclusive design assets. Add animated stickers from GIPHY or apply a text animation for short-form graphic videos in one tap. We’ve taken care of all the boring technical stuff so that you can focus on your message and style. You can also add collaborators to your project to have a more hands-on-deck bringing your design to life.
Resize to make your content go further.
Gone are the days of having to memorize image dimensions for every single platform. Once you've landed on design you like, you can easily modify it for any printed need or social network using the Resize tool. Duplicate the project, hit Resize, and select the social channel you plan to share your design to. Boom. Content for all your channels in a fraction of the time.
Save and share your custom Christmas card.
