The Joys of Creating a Christmas Card + $150 Gift Card to Minted

This year I am scrambling to get a Christmas card put together and out.  I thought about just bagging it in light of the just having a baby thing and all, but I love getting and sending Christmas Cards. They are one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. I love seeing people’s families and their kids thru the years.  Nothing better than opening a mail box filled with Christmas Cards.

 I wanted to wait til after Frances was born to try and get a picture with her and Sterling together.  So after we put our tree up last weekend,  I put them in some Christmas clothes and busted out my iphone to try and snap a few pictures.  I had no idea how difficult it would be to get a good picture of the two of them.  The outtakes however were hilarious.

Sterling bless his heart tried so hard but he just has a hard time smiling naturally for the camera.  His forced smiles made me laugh.  I love the stank eye Frances is giving him in the last picture.  I did manage to get a pretty solo picture of Frances sleeping after all the comotion.

In the past years I have bought the old school kind of Christmas cards where you attach the picture yourself and hand sign them.  I don’t have time for that mess this year.  I decided to use Minted instead.  I had been so impressed with several Minted invitations and cards I received.  They use thicker card stock paper which I really like and I loved their new gold foil designs for this Christmas!  Their quality is really amazing and all the work is done for you!

Minted has a fabulous selection this Holiday season, a few of my favorites:

and in case you are curious this is the card we went with this year.  Some of you should be getting it in the mail soon!  Best picture we could get but they are both looking up with eyes open so I will take it!

Luckily for any of you last minute Christmas Card people like me, Minted is offering one of my readers a $150 giftcard.   You can use this for anything it doesn’t have to be Christmas Cards.  $150 will go a long way towards any of Minted’s fabulous designs!

All you have to do to enter is visit and leave a comment telling  me what you would use the $150 towards.  Giveaway is open til Sunday at noon and I will contact the winner Monday!

    We got so many compliments on the Minted cards that we sent last year, and we've got an even better reason to send them this year with our new little guy born in May. I love the simple gold Happy Holidays card.

    Have been waiting to make a Christmas card since my new baby bump is just appearing and I want to get a cute bump photo this weekend! Love so many designs from Minted but choose the "merry typography foil-pressed holiday" design. Would love to make this card to announce our first baby (a little girl) who is due in April!

  45. Avatar December 6, 2013 / 2:37 pm

    Love the out takes, so funny. Similar experience over here. Since I've already ordered my Christmas cards, I would go with some personalized stationary. I'm digging the painted floral design.

    Oh my goodness! This is too funny πŸ™‚ On cyber Monday I was all ready to buy some minted cards- what a great special they had!- and my husband came home & poo-pooed the idea reminding me of everything else I had to do. Super disappointing! I was actually looking at the same "Merry" one you chose! So, winning this gift card would be a most delightful treat! (Also because finding a good picture with our 6 month old baby girl was hard enough! I'm proud of you to get yours out πŸ˜‰

    I already have holiday cards — I did the "good" pic on the front and had some outtakes on the back. Like your super cute pictures, they are too funny not to share:) But I also LOVE to send Valentines. Minted has great options so that's what I would choose! Thanks for the great opportunity!

    I LOVE Minted! We just had a baby girl last weekend, and I would use the gift card towards her birth announcement! I also ordered samples of New Years cards and love those. My goal is to get some good pictures of her with the tree this weekend and work on putting both cards together. πŸ™‚

    Love the heart snapshot photo art !! Your children are adorable.

    When I saw your Christmas card outtake on Instagram I laughed out loud. My daughter is always getting photos like Sterling was there. I don't think that since my son was born 5 months ago I have managed to capture one that is half decent/not forced/ridiculously funny of the two of them. Thanks for sharing a few more!

    That being said, I have yet to get my holiday cards made. I keep trying to capture that "perfect photo" but let's face it, the outtakes are so much more fun πŸ™‚
    Would love that GC so I can send my family one of my classic, cheesy prints!

    I already ordered Christmas Cards from Minted, but we have a baby coming in January and the gift card would be awesome for some birth announcements!

    I love minted cards! I used them last year to send out a xmas card with my husband and I (+ my baby bump). This year has been crazy – and I would love to send out a xmas card with my little one! I like the gold printed cards.

    I love Minted! I've ordered cards from there every year since they launched. I just received mine in the mail, so I would use a gift card towards their party collection for some paper goods for a wedding shower I'm throwing in the spring. Congrats to you!
