Now that we’re halfway across the country from some of our closest family and friends, holiday cards this season are more important that ever. What better excuse than the holidays to write a hand written letter and send it to our loved ones via snail mail? I wanted to have something special to send out to our nearest and dearest. The obvious choice was a photo card of Pat and I featuring one of our amazing wedding photos by the wonderful Kinsey and Josh Mhire. With literally hundreds to choose from, it was so hard to narrow it down to one! We eventually went with one of us with the swing that Pat made.
Minted is an online company based out of San Francisco, and I’m such a fan of all of their pretty paper products. When they reached out to me about providing our holiday cards (and a discount for you!), it felt like the perfect opportunity. We chose one of their new foil-pressed holiday card designs. It was so easy to upload our photo, click through the options and submit. Really, the hardest part of the process was picking just one design! We eventually narrowed it down to this festive Cheerflake design.
Opening the box was such a treat. The cards were wrapped in ribbon and the package was signed by the designer. The cards are perfect. The photos are matte, so they don’t show fingerprints and look so professional! I am so happy with the quality and with how great our photo looks. There were so many options to choose from. Here are a few more of my faves:
I chose to leave the back of our cards blank and my intent is to fill the space with a hand-written note. One of the benefits of being so on the ball with holiday cards this year is that I’ll actually have time to do it! I love sending and receiving hand-written notes – it’s one of those small thoughtful things that is so meaningful.
