Christmas cards - a serious pain for me at chritsmas. I always forget someone, don't buy enough, post them too late. I find time to sit down and write them and still and still end up forgetting someone. Even if I have a list. But I love them. I love seeing them strung up around the front room, see friends and families sending well wishes and love and christmas Joy. With M first school year we have already started reciveing cards home from his little friends - and he sat down a wrote all his over the weekend too.
The lovely people over at minted asked me if I would like to try out their site for some Christmas cards this year. Their site is beautiful - stylish designs, lovely ideas and the abilty to personalise them. There is photo cards, non photo cards, gold foiled cards and you ca even upload all your addresses to get the enevelopes printed for you!!
They are based in America, but I placed my order last week and they arrived on Monday - super quick and really well packaged. The postage to UK was super resonaable too. I was able to upload the photos directly to site, your able to make minor edits to the photos too.
I decieded to try something a little different and opted for the Photo Ornament Cards. They include envelopes and and ribbon. I went for a double sided version. There are lots of designs to pick and you can change the shape of the card, and edit the text. I went for a small order to send to family mainly - as who else would want our pictures on ther christmas tree! plus i put the boys picture on the front as that really what they want anyway!
I'm so pleased with them! Such a lovely keepsake for our family members!! Super excited to give these out now!
