Our 2017 Christmas Cards


Thank you so much to Minted for partnering with me on this post! They graciously provided our cards for this year, but I would have used them even if they hadn’t :)

Only four more days till Christmas! Are you ready? We’re cozied up at my in-laws’ house in upstate New York where it’s looking like it’ll be a white Christmas–so fun! The day before making the drive up here, we got all of our Christmas cards in the mail, and since they should be in all our family members and friends’ mailboxes by now, I wanted to share the Minted design we decided on. We weighed classic, whimsical, and minimalist styles here–thanks so much to everyone who weighed in!

I think having a sweet little toddler in our photo is what pushed us over the edge with a whimsical card this year–I LOVE this “Merry Dots” design with gold foil details, and even though it’s a little bit playful, I think it still represents our classic style perfectly. This is actually my favorite card we’ve ever sent!

Along with taking full advantage of Minted’s envelope address printing, we also created a little newsletter for the first time using their template. Graphic design is far from my forte, so I was very grateful to be able to simply plug in some favorite moments and memories of the year and call it a day.

Wishing you a joyful, blessed, and merry Christmas from our family to yours!

    Love these! What do you do with your christmas cards every year? Do you keep them to look back on? Trying to figure out what to do with mine.

    I didn’t know they had a newsletter template! I’m totally going to use that next year!
