I think it’s safe to say that, for the most part, everyone on our Christmas card list has received our card. I’m one of those very neurotic organized people who sends their Christmas cards the day before Thanksgiving, knowing they will arrive the day after Thanksgiving (or somewhere safely in the realm of acceptable Christmas card receiving dates). What can I say? I just really love Christmas and when Christmas and my love of stationery intertwine..oh, it’s such a beautiful mash-up.
Buying cards this year was a no-brainer. After the success of both last year’s card and our save-the-date cards, I knew that Minted was our only option. From their array of cards, I had to narrow down which one I liked the most, which proved to be incredibly challenging. At first I was only using one picture, no–now wait, I think two. Wait just a second, I like this collage card with 6 photo spots. Ohh, pretty foil cards…they would sparkle so much in the mail! Do I include more photos or a life update blurb on the back? It just went on and on..thank goodness for options!
When I saw that Minted offered holiday postcards, I was sold. For anyone that doesn’t know Dane and my love story, it all started with handwritten letters and postcards. JACKPOT PARTY! As soon as I spied the multiple photo layout, I was sold. Without further ado…
|Minted includes your return address custom printed in the top left
corner. I love you all dearly, but I’m not ready to divulge our home
address to the interwebs 😉
Not to be outdone, my parents also got in on the fancy card action this year! Aren’t they the cutest?

Merry Christmas from our house(s) to yours 🙂
