Help me choose our holiday card + $250 Minted giveaway


Now that we’ve had both the oldest two girls’ birthdays, I start to think about Thanksgiving and Christmas. I know, it’s soooo far away. Except it’s not. And things pop up. And, I’m scrambling on December 15th to address and mail out Christmas cards.

This year, I’m going to be on the ball. I’ve already got family photos booked, so once we get those, the cards will be ordered.

But, I need your help.

Minted has offered me a credit to purchase our holiday cards (and if you keep reading, one for you to enter to win a $250 credit as well). But, picking out cards is hard. There are so many great features, designs, layouts and colors.

For example, this might be top on my list. The Merry Christmas Sparkle Snow Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards actually sparkles when you move it. I love the clean lines and yet poop of glitter effect.

Then I see the Happiest of Holiday card and like the super simple nature of it. I like that it focuses on the family and I can see that a family of six will fit on the front.

Then, I spy Four Warm Wishes and I love that each of the girls could get a little section that is the same size (so no favorites) and then we could include a family picture on the inside or the back. Plus, I like the blue an gold.

But, I can’t stop there. I must keep looking and I find the Vintage Christmas card, again with four sections so each kid could get equal real-estate. People worry about this, right? That all kids get the same size square?

Oh…then I find the Modern Display Holiday Card. Each kid can get equal space AND it has room for a family picture. I like to include a family picture just in case people don’t recognize our kids (like that’s possible, right?)

When I was looking around, I found a couple cards that had different state images on them (I’m looking at you Texas, Michigan and Florida). I guess Georgia’s state outline is too boring. But, when I searched I found the Southern Charm Holiday Card. There’s just something about a card that says “y’all” on it. And, I sort of feel like I need it.

The cards all have great inside options if you want a folding card.

Or you can choose from the backer options that coordinate with the card.

Basically, Minted is a dream and saves me so much time trying to come up with a new design every year. I’ve done it. It can be done and there are some cute cards, but this is so much easier.

Plus, they offer FREE Address Assistant makes addressing holiday cards so easy.

This makes the ordering and addressing process so much easier! No more writing them out by hand and no more printing out labels and fighting with them.

Minted also has a find it fast option that is a super helpful tool to find the perfect holiday card design. Simply upload your photo, then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs. This saves a lot of time on individually clicking through and uploading photos to holiday card product pages.

You can always buy your holiday cards now and personalizing them later saving you time and money (“BNPL” option).
