Our Holiday Cards + A Giveaway!

Our Holiday Cards + A Giveaway!

I wanted to share our holiday cards with you guys! We had so much fun putting these together. I chose a design from Minted called minimal joy. This card by Nikkol Christiansen made my modern and mininal loving heart go pitter-patter. We used a photo from Thanksgiving to make it easy on ourselves and so we could get them out sooner than the day before Christmas like we usually do. If you are last minute like I usually am, Minted has some great deals right now to help you out including:

FREE rush shipping using code: SHIPNOW
15% off holiday cards with code: WINTER16
20% off holiday cards for new customers with code: NCJOY

Or would you rather win your holiday cards this year?

Lucky for you, I am giving away three $100 gift cards to Minted!

I don't know about you, but I am terrible at picking a favorite design. Something that really helped me was Minted's Find It Fast Option. Rather than individually clicking through and uploading photos to holiday card product pages, you upload your photo and then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs. It seriously saved me.

Another thing I LOVE LOVE about Minted is they offer free recipient addressing. I have never taken advantage of this, and it seriously SAVED ME SO MUCH TIME! It's easy to do too. If you have a mac like me, you can export a contacts address group to an excel spreadsheet. And from there just erase the columns that don't apply to the Minted template.

The paper is similar to a felt paper. It feels really high quality.

I also did the return address printing pictured above. This also saved me a huge amount of time. I would have normally stamped them one-by-one. For both addressing options Minted has designs that are intended specifically to match the card you choose. You can also choose another design they offer.

We are up in Telluride, CO right now, so I HAD to get a pic of the cards in the snow. It was Flynn-man's first time seeing snow. He loved it. It was so much fun watching him. I hope he never loses his sense of wonder.

If you order from Minted, make sure to check out the holiday delivery deadlines. Don't forget that Minted is also offering FREE rush delivery with code: SHIPNOW. December 17th is the last day for rush shipping to get them by December 20th.

Here is a look at everything together. I think the addresses match the cards perfectly, don't you think?!

I could stare at this lil guy all day, especially since our days are numbered with just him around.

Major props to great grandma for this cutie patootie sweater. She has always had such good style.

Flynn-man likes the cards too :-).


How do you think they turned out?! Now drumroll please ... it's time for the GIVEAWAY!!


The contest will run from December 13th to December 20th, and Minted will contact the winners. Don't forget, you can get FREE rush shipping using code: SHIPNOW. Good luck you guys!
