Free Printable Elf Card

Want your elf to send *someone* a card? Then you need an official elf card, right? These sweet little cards are perfect to print for that little buddy that you have to remind yourself to move...every ding dang night. This elf card is great to send to explain why your elf didn't move...or whatever you need it for! 

Printable Elf Card
For the first time in years, we are elf-free (I didn't mean to sound that excited, but, well...ya know). Our teenager practically rolled his eyes right out of his head at the mere thought of the elf returning. And his brother had similar sentiments. But, for those of you still elfing through the season, this free printable elf card is the perfect accessory for a forgetful parent (that was always me!). Print one whenever you need it...this elf card is even a nice way for your elf to say good-bye, too. Download yours below.

Elf on the Shelf Card

Free Printable Elf Card

This sweet little elf card features a classic red elf on top of a green gingham pattern. It is blank on the inside so your little elf friend can write whatever is needed. 

Fun Elf Idea:

Need a break from your elf? He or she may need to disappear for a bit (so mom and dad can have a much needed break, right?). Send this elf card in the snail mail to your kids so your elf can explain their absence (be sure to mail a day or so before your elf makes this *temporary* exit). Even if there are frowns for the elf leaving for a bit, what kiddo doesn't love to receive actual mail, amiright?

How to Print and Use this Elf Card

  • Download your elf card here or below.
  • Print your card onto white cardstock. Regular paper isn't recommended for these (it tends to curl up on the corners). I buy my white cardstock the cheapest on Amazon here.
  • Cut out your card on the inside of the red hairline. Fold and send. Envelope information is available below.

Envelopes for Your Elf Card

I use A6 envelopes for all of my printable greeting cards. My standard ones are pictured above on the left. They are very budget-friendly. You can grab them here on Amazon. The ones pictured above on the right are a fancier, contoured-flap envelope with a bit of metallic sheen to them (they're fun for the Christmas season). You can grab those fancier ones on Amazon here (a bit pricier).
