Our 2016 Christmas Card

This post is sponsored by Minted.  My obsession with their cute Christmas cards is all my own. 

Now that (most) of the people on our card list have received it in the mail, I can share our 2016 Christmas card with you guys!

I feel like I do this every year...I have a great plan for what gorgeous card from Minted I'm going to use, and then I completely change it when I actually order the card.  I feel like you kind of have to have the picture you're using when you actually choose the card, you know?  But, just like I've done for the past few years, the one we actually chose doesn't appear at all in my planning post. Darn you, Minted, for having too many cute choices! ;)



Once I put the picture we were using in Minted's handy dandy Find it Fast feature (which lets you plug your picture into multiple cards at once), the choice was really a no-brainer.  Noah and I both chose this kind of retro card...it's Minted's Vintage Christmas Script Holiday Photo Card.  It worked perfectly with the feel of our picture...and that striped backer was so completely perfect with Jackson's outfit!


I might or might not have done a little happy dance in the middle of my kitchen when we got these in.  I thought it would be a cute idea to add the striped back to our cards, but I mean really...it just worked out so well with Jackson's outfit.




I don't think these are the printed envelopes that go with this card, but with the red striped backer on the cards I absolutely had to have the cute candy canes on my envelopes.  Minted printed my loved ones' addresses right on the envelopes (for free!)...those are edited out of the picture for privacy reasons, but just imagine a cute matching address to the right of the candy canes. I love that Minted addresses your envelopes for you...one of my favorite things about ordering Christmas cards from them!


So, to all of my friends out there in blog world, consider this my virtual Christmas card to you and your family.  The people that read this blog are such a special part of my life...I know I say it every year, but I wish I could send each and every one of you a card in the mail!  The readers are what keep this blog going - consider this a big huge Christmas hug going out to each one of you. 😉
