Hard to believe but it's time for holiday cards again! One of my favorite things about the holidays is seeing all the beautiful new pictures of friends and family; I get so excited going to the mailbox each day. With our new little guy's arrival getting closer, I'm trying to get on top of my holiday checklist now, with our holiday cards being at the top of the list. We used Minted last year for our cards, and I was thrilled! Their designs and quality are fantastic and I loved that I was able to customize the back with anchors (of course). We'll be using Minted again this year, and I've starting playing around with options (see below). I took a few photos of the boys which you'll see in the cards, but we just had professional photos taken this past weekend so I'm waiting for all of those to come back; the front photo on card #4 is a sample from the shoot!
1. Spirited Holiday Photo Card with shape cutout (also available in foiled-pressed)
2. Whimsy Stripes Holiday Card with shape cutout (also available in foiled-pressed)
3. Spirited Holiday Post Card
4. Dotted Frame Foil-Pressed Holiday Card
What do you think? Have a favorite? I'm leaning towards #3 (love the postcard idea) but with the front photo of #4. Minted makes it easy to make a beautiful card. They offer so many great features including matching return addressing, free recipient addressing (good motivation to get organized and have a spreadsheet), fun back side design options, cute shape cutouts, foil-pressed cards like #4 above, beautiful designs from independent artists, lots of opportunity to customize the text and many more features to love. So many great options, which also makes it really hard to choose :-) Have you done your holiday cards yet?
Our friends at Minted are offering some great deals this season, especially for early birds- be sure to stop over and check them out. Right now the deal is 15% off all holiday cards with the code CHEER15.
