My mom has always told me that you have until after the new year to send out holiday cards and this year, well that's basically what's happening. I was a little slow on the draw when it came to shooting and putting together my cards, but thankfully, after teaming up with Minted the process was made infinitely better. You can literally make your cards from your phone, which I did, with ease. I ended up creating two different styles for this year's card, both postcards and foil-pressed. It took me a while to decide on my two designs, because real talk, the options at Minted are basically unlimited. They have something for absolutely everyone and every celebration. I think the red version, "Lots Of Dots" is my favorite of the two, the red matched up perfectly with our pajamas and the gold shimmer is just the right amount of sparkle for a postcard heading out into the world. The Rustic Branches (the green card) actually has a gorgeous glitter foil finish. It definitely stands out way more in person. The pictures don't do it any justice.
As for the back, we were able to add our announcement of the year with a picture on each. You can skip the picture in favor for text but in our case a picture was worth a thousand words. I mean, those faces. Another perk was having our return address already printed on the cards for sending out. We had the option to pre-address the cards but I decided to skip that and do it by hand, just in case I miss someone. Talk about a win.
So, on the off chance you haven't started your cards for the holidays I would check out Minted, they're actually offering FREE rush shipping until 12/27 with code: NYSHIP
