Holiday cards don't have to be a headache! In fact, all you need is your iPhone and an Instagram account to create an easy, free holiday card to share with your friends and family...and it only takes about a minute. You can watch our quick video tutorial, or here it is broken down, step by step:
Step 1: Go to Primary's Instagram and tap stories.
Step 2: Take a screenshot of the background template. (Pro tip: tap and hold to make the profile overlay disappear before taking your screenshot.)
Step 3: Open your own Instagram stories.
Step 4: Swipe up and select your screenshot to create the background of your card. (Notice these other templates? They're available in our Primary stories highlight for you, too!)
Step 5: Now open your photo library. (Don't worry, we'll be coming back to Instagram soon!)
Step 6: Select the photo you want to feature from your photo library. Once selected, click on "copy photo" at the bottom of your screen.
Step 7: Now head back to your in-progress Instagram story. Your selected photo will pop up with the option to "Add Sticker." Add the sticker and place the photo on the background. (Cool, huh?!)
Step 8: Use the GIF menu and text option to adorn your photo and add a greeting. (We highly recommend the "primarydotcom" GIPHY stickers. Just sayin'.)
Step 9: Finally, share your e-card to your stories, or send to individual friends. (Don't forget to tag @primarydotcom - we'd love to re-post your cards!)
Step 10: There is no Step 10! You're done! Go you!
