It is very easy to make professional quality holiday cards over at Fotor.com. They also have cards for New Years and other holidays to choose from, and they have special event cards that you can use too. All you have to do is plug in your image, set the type, and you will have some nice end results.
Here are some card designs that Benja and I considered for our official holiday card. We decided on using the one below -- with Happy Holidays in red.
Fotor also has a nice suite of photo editing tools you can use. It is free right now, but may become paid in the future. You can try it out here:
Oh, and before I forget -- please have a wonderful holiday season and all the best for 2015!
