Merry snowy flurries

Gold snowflakes adorn this rich, red double-sided card, providing a classic holiday message with a design that says "Merry Christmas" and can be customized with your family's name. The focal image is on top of the card while the bottom of the card features three smaller images so you don't have to choose just one!

Gleaming rejoice

Joy is plentiful during the holiday season, and this card spreads joy to your entire family with a design that features the word "Rejoice" in gold font that looks stunning against the dark blue card stock. A photo lover's dream, the design features three images on the front and one large image on the back.

Christmas Berry

Christmas Berry is a classic holiday design that features a white background and perfectly placed evergreen sprigs, pine cones and red berries for a pop of color. The two-toned Merry Christmas greeting in gold and red really adds a touch of class for a formal yet fun holiday feel.

Step 3: Customize

Depending on the card's design, you'll be able to customize with your favorite images and a personalized message. Use photos from previous JCPenney Portraits sessions, or, schedule a holiday family photography session today!
