You guys, I’m notorious for procrastinating when it comes to sending out holiday cards. Early in our marriage we started sending them around New Years, which wasn’t horrible, but then the timeline got pushed back even more…to Valentine’s Day one year, and then another year it was closer to St. Patrick’s Day before people received them…for our holiday cards (at least they’re all holidays). I figured our family and friends didn’t really mind since snail mail (that isn’t junk or bills) is fun to get no matter the time of year.
Needless to say, but my goal this year is to get our cards out by New Years. That’s the goal, people; hopefully I can stick to it and actually make it happen.
Thankfully, Minted contacted me to see if I could share their latest holiday card collection with you guys. Seeing as how I’m trying to turn over a new leaf and get myself organized this year, I figured it’d be great to start the holiday card hunt sooner rather than later!
They’re even giving one of you a little something as well (keep on reading to find out about the giveaway)!
Over the weekend I did some digging around and I’m here to share my favorite New Year’s cards from Minted. They had close to 400 cards in their “New Year’s” category, so I narrowed it down to my favorite half dozen—which was much harder than it sounds.
Here’s the thing about Minted cards that has me totally drooling over them: You can change so much about the design! There are different shapes, colors, and even sayings you can pick from. So even though I’m featuring “New Years” below, they can all be easily switched to a holiday or Christmas version. Pretty darn cool if you ask me!
These are my six favorites (and if you’re friends or family, pretend you’re seeing our card for the first time whenever I get around to sending them out):
|I’m a sucker for the “happy” font. (Chic Holidays)|
|Digging the font and the fact that we could use three photos (Happy Kisses)|
|The font and simplicity got me again for this card, although you can bet your bottom dollar our photo won’t include us wearing white at a beach…to each their own! (Frosted Watercolor)|
|Loving the water color and the option for three photos. (Watercolor Warm Wishes)|
|Pretty wedding photos aside, I like this one. It’d be cute if we could get pictures of us hugging and kissing, and then a family shot. (Clean Merry Wishes)|
|Like the card’s name, I like that this is just simple and classic. A nice family photo wishing everyone a happy new year. Keeping things classy. (Classic Holiday)|
I definitely have a few top favorites from the bunch, but I need to wait and see what our family photos look like before I take the plunge and order them.
