Advent Cards :: free printable

Can you believe that tomorrow is already the first of December?  Every year, I think I have so much time to prepare for Christmas & somehow it sneaks up on me each and every year.

This year, I decided to throw together some advent cards to prepare for Christmas…& remember it’s meaning.  A little walk through Scripture day by day as we get closer to the 25th.  I started with this set.  It is the classic Christmas story from Scripture.  A great place to start when looking at what the Bible says about the day we celebrate as Christmas.  Classic!

And then as often happens in my world…I got a bit carried away.  Heaven forbid I do anything just a little.  It’s a blessing.  It’s a curse.  So I also came up with this set with a different name of Jesus for each of the 24 days leading up to Christmas morning.  I absolutely LOVE this set with it’s different Scripture passages than what I am normally reading at Christmas time.  I see these as a great reminder of who we are celebrating this season…Jesus!

And again because I seldom just stop with “that’s good enough” {hence the name of my blog} I took it another step farther.  And let me tell you, this may be the creme de la creme of my advent card ideas.  Perhaps you’ll hate it.  That’s ok.  I adore them.  I decided to create a card for each day leading up to the twenty fifth of December that paired a Christmas carol with a Scripture passage.  I.  Know.  Why haven’t I thought of this before.  I’m so very, very excited to listen each day to the carol and read over the passage with my family.  I.  Know!  So here’s that set.   Some of the carols are old familiar ones that you’ve likely heard a bazillion times & know by heart.  Others may be brand new to you.  I’ve tried to include the artist who sings it {or at least the one who sings it that I’m familiar with}  so that you can easily find it.  All should be available on iTunes.  {please note this set will not print out in numerical order…it makes me a bit anxious 😉 but it is what it is…good enough}

I printed these off on some 65# white cardstock.  Then I cut them apart using the cutting guides on each sheet and used my ever-trusty corner rounder from Creative Memories to finish them off.  So easy!  I think we’ll have all 3 sets around the house this Christmas.

I hope you enjoy these} and that the Scripture of the season fills your home.  Jesus is the entire reason for everything we are preparing for this time of year & taking just a moment to learn a bit more about him & the story we celebrate is a treasure worth unwrapping!  Let me know which set you like best & how you’re using them this Christmas!

  1. Hi, I love your cards; thank you for the blessing of allowing us to use them. I have one question, what size is your corner rounder? I tried mine, which is too big, it cut into the numbers (I was so sad). Thank you for the time you put into these.

    God Bless You,

    Erlinda

  2. Where did you get the clip art that you used? These cards are beautiful! I have a project that I’m completing with my 2nd graders and I think the clip art would be perfect! Thanks!

    1. Hi Lyndsey, All the artwork was purchased from Fotolia.com – my favorite! So many wonderful things there!

  3. These cards are just what I need as I start to plan fall/Christmas season! Thank you so much!

  4. Thank you so much for the cards, especially the ones you used during the time of your son’s treatments. I hope all is well. My daughter is going through a time of depression and anxiety due to a not-so-great marriage and I hope these will help her.

  5. Your advent cards are BEYOND beautiful. However, we use a slightly different version of the Bible (The King James Version). I’m wondering if I could get your template and then retype the slightly different words.

    1. Audry,
      I had the same question as you and asked in a separate post before I saw your comment (sorry, Kim!).. I have since edited them with the KJV scripture (they aren’t as pretty… for example, I didn’t make the actual “name” stand out in the scripture, it’s all the same font/color/etc). I’d be happy to share.. email me at lemf87@gmail.com… or if you’d like to update this blog post w/ the KJV, Kim, I can email you the pdf. Blessings!!

      1. I am so sorry that I was unable to do these in the KJV. Thank you Logan for doing that. If anyone is interested in them, perhaps they can contact you? What a great blessing! Thanks!

  6. These are beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing these so generously! Can I ask what you put on the bottom of the clipboard to get it to stand up? I love everything about this. <3

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I bought that cute clipboard stand at Michaels. It works just perfectly for displaying these cards!

  7. Love, love, love this!! It’s exactly what I have been looking for ❤️Question, do you do all three of the calendars at the same time or just one each year?

    1. Thanks so much. I have all three displayed throughout my home::1 in the kitchen, 1 in the hall to the kids room and 1 in my office. I hope you enjoy!

  8. My church group wants to make family advent calendars using your beautiful cards. Can you please tell me the finished size of each card so I can share with them how big to make the pockets on the calendar? Thank you for creating these!

    1. What a fun idea. I’m so glad you’re able to use these cards.
      Finished size, each card is 3.75″x5″.
      Id love to see the finished product! Have a wonderful Christmas!

  9. Thank you for all your work on these! I love them (especially the names of Jesus one). I teach my children by the KJV. Is there anyway you could send a editable file to me so that I could edit to fit our family? I would not share and would be using them for personal use only, of course.

  10. I love these so much! We shrank down the names of Jesus cards and the hymn cards to make tiny two-sided advent cards to fit in our advent tree for our family. We tried the first one today and it was a huge hit! Thank you for helping us glorify God during this happy time of year! Merry Christmas from Colorado!

  11. Your cards are so beautiful. I wanted to thank you for making them and thank you for
    generously making them available for free. I was curious how your son was doing? I hope and pray he has been completely healed. I have an amazing friend who is fighting a similar cancer battle with her son too. Her name is Coral and her son’s name is Dempsey. I wanted to share her info with you because she added a few natural remedies in combination with the chemo that has been extremely beneficial. The doctors tell her whatever she is doing to keep it up because her son doesn’t look or feel like any of the other children they are treating.
