It’s the most wonderful time of the year: your favorite candle is lit, you’re almost done re-gifting all of last year’s fruitcakes, and hopefully you’ll get to enjoy a few days off with loved ones.

We made this list (and checked it twice!) of our most favorite holiday card designs on Dribbble. No need to leave out milk and cookies—just scroll down for a jolly good time.

Justina Cesnauskatie’s adorable card makes us want to dance in the snow. Lovely textures and details.
Prima Leta spreads all of the Christmas cheer with this vibrant geometric illustration. (It’s available on Society6, too.)
A gorgeous floral holiday card from our pals at Sprout Social. (Pssstttt… Did you catch our feature with them a few months ago?
“I thought it might make a nice wrapping paper print too,” says UK-based designer Jasmine Whiteleaf of her card design. Put that on our wishlist for next year!
Such a sweet hand-drawn card by Helen Owens—her family couldn’t possibly look any cuter or cozier.
Modern and elegant, this card by Tad Carpenter belongs in a frame. Check out the matching wrapping paper!
First we liked the colors, then we liked the textures—and then we couldn’t get over the adorable detail of Santa stuck in the chimney. Great work by Daniele Simonelli.
Cleverly titled “Jungle Bells,” this card was created for the Rainforest Alliance. Linework by Justin Valdes, and fills by Mason Phillips.
We’d be beyond stoked to get one of these beautiful letterpress cards by Steve Wolf in our mailbox.
Really cool shading in the 3-D lettering of this card. “I hummed Christmas songs the entire time making this,” says designer Chaz Russo.

An understated, timeless card design from The Abbi Agency.
You can’t help but smile at this whimsical card design by Patricia Mafra.
Loving this fun card design by Tom McQuaid. The ice-skating Christmas tree needs to be on a t-shirt.
