The weather has been so beautiful here in New Jersey that we’ve been spending our weekends at the park or in the woods. A few weekends ago, we decided to have an impromptu photo shoot in the park. We mainly went so I could take photos of the fall foliage and snap some cute photos of Hunter. My father recently gave me one of his camera tripods, so I lugged it along with me on our walk. It was a gorgeous day, so I took advantage of it and snapped a few family photos, as well.
I was super happy with how our photos turned out! I immediately thought, “That’s it! We’ve got our Christmas card pictures for this year!” Then, of course, the hunt was on to find the perfect Christmas card design. Minted definitely helped me choose the perfect Christmas card this year. Well, actually, I chose three. Yes, we have three different Christmas cards this year!
One of the first things I noticed when browsing through Minted’s collection was that they had a lot of pet focused holiday cards! So if you’re like me and you’re constantly taking pictures of your fur baby, you can create a holiday card with their photo.
Whether your pet has been naughty or nice this year, there’s a design for every fur baby you want to feature! I was able to put one of our many new pictures of Hunter to good use and created the perfect pet holiday card! We chose the super cute Doggy Nice List design. It’s a perfect fit for our sometimes naughty, sometimes nice pup!
I think part of the reason I got three different holiday cards this year was that there are so many beautiful designs in Minted’s holiday collection. The foil pressed cards are absolutely beautiful. They would have been my first choice. But since we took photos in the middle of the park, surrounded by trees, I wanted a card with a natural theme. So I did a search for cards with a nature theme and fell in love with the Snowy Splash card. The design fit our photo perfectly!
I also had a second, similar photo to the one above and made it black and white. I wanted to choose a simple design this time and picked the Roadside Attraction card. This card has a simple, white border with “Oh What Fun!” printed in script at the bottom.
Minted makes it so easy to create the perfect holiday card. You can personalize your favorite card design with a ton of options like photos, shape, color, and text. Want to make it even easier? Use their Find it Fast option. Just upload the photo you want to use and then preview the photo in hundreds of card designs!
Once you’re finished designing your card, use the Address Assistant to get free matching envelopes already addressed with your recipients’ information! And when you’re not ready to personalize your cards, but want to score a great deal on Minted, you have the option of coming back later to finish them.
Speaking of coming back, be on the look out for a follow-up post from me. I’ll be revealing all three of my Christmas card designs! I have to say, I’m super impressed with the quality of these cards and I can’t wait to share them with friends and family this year!
