Giveaway Holidays

It’s Holiday Greeting Card Time…. (And a MINTED Giveaway)

November 7, 2016

There are two things in this world that I really, really sincerely hope do not get replaced by technology, 1) the hand written thank you note (of which, confession, I have several to write myself), and 2) holiday greeting cards (ones that actually get sent in the mail). My kids and I LOVE getting the mail in November and December. Seeing the smiles of all our favorite people in a beautiful greeting card truly adds to the season’s cheer.

Typically I get a piece of festive string and a set of cute little clothespins, and clip the cards across our big kitchen window. So before you think to yourself, eh holiday cards, are they still a thing? The answer is YES! They are still a very very relevant thing and my kids can sit and eat dinner and point at all of their favorite friends on our clothesline display and I can watch them and smile too (and eat in peace). So for that, I thank you.

Minted is always my go-to for holiday greeting cards and they asked me to take a look at their collection for the upcoming season. The quality of their cards is always top-notch and they have so many beautiful, customizable designs. They make for the perfect keepsake. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of the post!

Here are a few designs I played around with:

Glitter is Gold:
I have never done an ornamant card before, but I love this idea. How cool would it be to collect these year after year until your tree is full with your family’s photos. I’m bummed I didn’t think of this idea sooner!

Minimalist Modern Cheer:
Simple and modern. This design lets the photo do the talking.

Cheeky and Bright:
I love using candid photos for holiday cards! You can even customize the words on this card – maybe it should say, “May your days be filled with PEACE”…….or, “Peace is over-rated” 😉

Birth Announcement + Holiday Card (the good ol’ two-for-one):
Oh poor 4th child. I never did a birth announcement for this little guy. Minted has so many cute cards that double as a birth announcement and holiday greeting.

And lastly, if you can’t find that perfect photo, I can’t stop thinking about this adorable option. No photography required!
