I usually get all Emily Post about sending hand-written holiday cards to friends and family, but not this year. I spotted these cards designed by Kate Spade and Martha Stewart and more and now feel a little lazy about my yearly tradition. They're just as modern and pretty as the ones I'd overpay for in stores (these are free or much cheaper) and I can still write my personalized message, plus I can tailor the design to suit each recipient if I want. (I'll save a tree to boot.) Sure, my pals don't get to hang them in their homes with all the other cards, but it keeps my greeting out of the trash post-holidays. Take a look and if these don't strike your fancy, visit the sites below for a wider selection.
