I am so, so terribly bad at sending out holiday cards. I have every intention to do so, and then I get distracted by end of year projects, shopping, traveling, and just general holiday craziness. This year, however, I was determined to send out cards, especially since we moved away from our families this past year. So when Minted contacted me and asked if I'd like to try out some of their new holiday cards, I knew this was my chance!
You know I'm a black, white, and metallic kinda girl. It's how I decorated my apartment for Christmas. I just can't quit it.
So naturally, I jumped at the chance to make a black and white photo card with gold metallic lettering. I chose the All Aglow card, which comes with gold, rose gold, or silver lettering! Isn't it just gorgeous?
funny story: we took this photo ourselves, with the camera on a tripod sitting on our bed. I had to push the shutter so it would start the timer, then run over to Nick who then draped me with lights and we posed, all in under 10 seconds. You should see the outtakes. Actually...no, you shouldn't. Our neighbors thought we were crazy, surely.
My favorite part, aside from the gorgeous cards, was that you can opt into printed envelopes! This means that if you have your addresses ready, you can input them into the site and Minted will print them for you, return addresses and all. So all you have to do it lick them, stamp them, and send them off!
There are so many different typefaces and fonts to choose from for your envelopes. I love this feature because who has time to address all of those envelopes anymore? Not me!
And exciting news! Minted is giving away $125 worth of New Years cards! Didn't get around to Christmas cards this year? Or are you the type to send out an end-of-year card instead?
