This weekend was our annual Christmas card picture taking event. Saturday we did family pictures at a Christmas tree farm, and Sunday we did the kids pictures with Santa Clause. Both were a ton of fun and I can’t wait to see (and share) how they turn out!
Christmas (er, holiday) cards are always a big deal to me. We hardly ever send out mail and I want really nice ones for our friends and families to have. I always want to go all out for the pictures and have high quality cards that people actually want to hang up in their home. That’s why I’m using Minted again this year. I was so impressed with both our cards last year and Tripp’s birth announcement that I knew Minted is who I wanted to order cards from.
So this year like every year I searched hard to find outfits for us, ordered them with rush shipping to make sure they got here on time, found a mini session with a photographer that I love, and made sure I was on top of things to get them out. The only problem now is deciding which card design from Minted to go with. Last year I was really into the foil pressed cards. I still think they’re gorgeous, but for whatever reason they just aren’t topping my list this year. I’m more drawn to pretty colors and whimsical graphics. I haven’t 100% decided which cards I’m ordering this year, but here are the ones topping my list.
“Merry and Bright” Emblem Holiday Cards
Holly Jolly Cheer Holiday Cards
“Joy” Glow and Glimmer Holiday Cards
