    photoshop. But I guess it depends with what you want to achieve and personal style.
    I made on with zbrush last year and turned up quite good.

    I use Illustrator and Photoshop most of the time . But from time to time I might also use indesign and Cinema 4d - if I am feeling fancy

    I use illustrator for the vector images I plan to use and typically do the layout in InDesign. I use the Data Merge feature of InDesign to do my addresses on the envelopes.

    Overall if you have Adobe Creative Suite any version - you have all of the tools at your fingertips to make great holiday cards. All you need to bring to the table is your inspiration and design concept. Let the programs take care of the rest.

    These programs will aid you in creating a print-quality file.

    I like to do it in illustrator, because then if the client wants an animated gif out of it it is easier to import to flash.

    Photoshop. Most professional printers will also have layered .psd template files of their cards. Its nice to know it will all be the right size when you order them.

    Usually a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop, and occasionally InDesign. I always finish in Photoshop, because I tend to use a lot of vintage effects.

    ADOBE it is

    I always use Photoshop combined with Illustrator. I think that for such a task there is no better tool.

    depending on your personal skills, indesign, illustrator or photoshop will definitely do the trick, but it also depends how complicated you want to go.
