I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas cards.
I love when it all comes together and I end up with a beautiful Christmas card to send out to friends and family. And I will admit that I probably spend way too many hours obsessing over just the right photo and just the right layout for my cards.
I hate that in recent years it has been nearly impossible to get a Christmas card picture worthy photo of my children.
But I wasn't about to let the fact that I didn't have THE perfect Christmas card picture get in the way of picking out the Christmas card with the hope that I would get that picture.
I am not at all loyal to any of the stationary/photo websites. And when it comes to Christmas cards I am pretty cut throat if the site doesn't have the Christmas card layout/saying that "speaks to me" than I am moving on.
That is where www.minted.com comes in.
There have a ton of different choices and one of my favorite parts is that minted lets you put different parameters on your search so you are not wading through a million different cards that don't fit your needs. For example I am looking specifically for Christmas cards and I like to have one big picture on the front of the card with the option of more smaller pictures on the back. Minted lets me set those parameters so I am only seeing cards that truly work for me.
I love that because I am always in a huge time crunch and being able to cut out a little of the search time is awesome.
And I love love love their cards!
Some of my top choices right now. (Of course this could all change by the time I get up in the morning.)
I think the "Cheers" greeting is super original
I think this card is soooo pretty!
What can I say but "Yay for Christmas"!
This one is gorgeous too!
Christmas cards are definitely an investment. And sometimes it seems an unnecessary expensive especially during one of the most expensive times of the year, but I love getting all the holiday cards during the month of December and love even more sending them out and getting all the feedback from my family and friends that they loved them. And if you are really feeling that you can't commit to the extra Christmas expensive minted has New Years cards for you. And this point if I don't get my act together I might be doing New Years cards instead of Christmas cards!
Do you send out holiday cards?
Which one of the minted cards is your favorite?
