Holiday cards + $250 giveaway


Hello friends. I’ve heard that some of you have actually started to decorate for Christmas while Thanksgiving is just a few days away. I think the early snow put all of us in the holiday mood for sure. The other night while the white stuff piled up outdoors I was snuggled on our couch designing this years first family photo holiday card from It was such a hard decision to choose which card we would send as Minted has so many gorgeous card layouts even this graphic designer was impressed.

While I typically wouldn’t share a card that I am just getting ready to send off in the mail to my family and friends (what’s the point right?) my friends over at are offering one lucky reader $250 towards their holiday card order, so I couldn’t help but share.

photoWe chose a lovely Foil Stamped Holiday Card format using a pretty shade of rose gold foil on top of our black and white holiday photo. The talented Suzanne Price of Suzaran Photography took so many wonderful images of our family it was so hard to choose just one shot. For the back of the card I selected a multi-image format in order to squeeze in a few more images of us in our backyard.

Did I mention they even imprint addresses your envelopes? Yes indeed, no more labels or long address writing, you just upload your own address list and they imprint them onto each envelope in your font of choice. Makes mailing so much easier.

Want to win this generous gift? You can win one of two ways. A) leave me a comment below letting me know which holiday card you would pick if you won the $250 gift or B) tweet me “@iheartclev I’d love to win the giveaway from @minted to put towards my holiday cards” Winner to be chosen at random, Wednesday December 3rd, 2014. Good luck.
