I’m not going to lie – when Tom and I got married one of the things I was most excited about as a newlywed was sending out Christmas cards! Sure you can do it when you’re not married, but it seemed a lot more normal to send them out once we were married, and I was able to use a wedding picture on them that year which made it extra special. And of course I added a picture of our cat too.
Every year our Christmas cards get more and more special though. Two years ago we were able to include a bump picture, and last year the first Christmas card with Maddie Grace on it made its way out to our friends and family. This year we have a bump and Maddie Grace in our Christmas card picture, and nothing is more special than that. We had some pictures taken at a local Christmas Tree Farm by Amanda Nicole Photography to make sure we had the perfect picture with all of us.
Since I get so excited about Christmas cards, it’s probably no surprise that I go all out on Christmas cards and look for the best quality ones I can get my hands on. For a lot of people it’s the only thing we send them all year, why not make it extra special? That’s why I teamed up with Minted this year to create the perfect Christmas card.
Minted connects regular people like us with independent artists to produce holiday cards that you aren’t going to find anywhere else. I love their assortment of designs and all the add-ons they have to make your holiday cards extra special this year.
I’m incredibly happy with how ours turned out. I’m obsessed with foil-pressed cards and it was hard to choose because Minted has so many but ultimately this design won because I thought it was gorgeous and looked perfect with the picture I wanted to use. Plus I’m kind of in love with the little special touches I was able to add on with Minted. The shimmery silver envelopes that are so pretty, return address labels, and the delivery address printing (which didn’t cost anything extra).
Plus there are some awesome deals going on right now with Minted – right now you can save 20% off holiday cards for Cyber Monday so order quick!
