Freebie Fridays #34 - Printable Christmas Menu Cards

December 19, 2014

Remember that at the beginning of this week I shared a tutorial on how you can easily make your own printable menu cards with the free image editing program Photoscape? Well, I'm back with more menu cards for this episode of Freebie Fridays.

With the Christmas parties and dinners just around the corner I thought it would be nice to share 3 printable Christmas menu cards with you all that I made myself. These ones have been made with the use of photos and the purple one was made with Photoshop. So if you are not in a position to make them yourself with the help of the tutorial, you can download these and print your favorite one to use at your Christmas dinner.

As you can see in the image on top of this post, the menu cards are blank except for the title text. Since I don't know what you're planning to eat at Christmas you have to fill in the menu yourself. 

There are two ways to add your menu to the cards:

1. Just print out the card of your choice and write down the menu text yourself
2. Add the menu with digital text before you print it. If you don't know how to add text with an image editing program, then please view this tutorial: http://www.thedutchladydesigns.com/2014/07/add-text-to-images-with-photoscape.html
And if you want to use a lovely font from www.fontspace.com but it is not in your image editing program yet, view this tutorial to find out how you easily add these free fonts to your program: http://www.thedutchladydesigns.com/2014/05/how-to-add-more-fonts-to-photoscape.html

The menu cards are 6x6 and 6x4.25 inches in size. They are all high resolution (300 dpi) .JPEG files, so they are perfect for printing. Of course it's up to you on what quality paper you decide to print them.

If you are celebrating Christmas and you've got dinner preparations to make, I wish you lots of success with it! Our family decided to split the work, so my mom-in-law and sister-in-law each prepare a course while I take care of the main course this year. A bit more relaxed than cooking an entire dinner on my own ;-)
