Holiday Cards + $125 Minted Giveaway

It is that time of year to start ordering Christmas Cards!  I have to admit I love Holiday Cards.  I get so excited when I go to get the mail and there are Holiday Cards in our mail box.  I love seeing pictures of my friends and their children that I don’t get to see on a regular basis.

 Time and time again I always find my favorites on Minted.  I especially love their Foil Collection.

The past two years I have done cards from the foil collection.

Right now you can use code CHEERS for 15% off + free recipient addressing on your card!

Our card from last year:)

I rounded up my 10 favorite foil designs on Minted but there are so many more fabulous options!

ONE | Happy Holidays

TWO | Wreath

THREE | Dots

FOUR | Its a Wonderful Life



SEVEN | Tree

EIGHT | Christmas Love

NINE| Square Border

TEN | Wreath

and if you want to do a New Year’s Card these are my favorites!

I love the idea of a New Year’s Card.

    Love the foil cards! #8 Christmas Love is my favorite of the bunch, but it was hard to choose, they're all great!

    I love the wreath (10) because it seems to consolidate all the attention to whats inside the wreath. Gorgeous!

    Natalie – Thanks for hosting a great giveaway!

    I love the very last card that you have shown. I agree that New Year's cards are a great idea. Sending them allows you to get through the hustle of the holidays while still showing your friends and family that you're thinking of them.

    Love your picks! The winter wildflowers design is one of my favorites, but the foil is so pretty that I think I would have to use the $125 towards the amazing frame foil cards. It's my 8 month old daughter's first Christmas, and I can't wait to show off her photo! I love minted!

    I love Minted for their cards and invitations as well as their affordable art work. I would use the $125 to purchase my holiday cards. At no other time of year do I bound for the mailbox! Holiday cards are one of my very favorite parts of the Christmas season! I have a number of favorites, but I love the simplicity of the Cheers Triangle Holiday Photo Card

    My family and I love Minted products! My favorite card is "It's a Wonderful Life" because my husband is a head high school football coach in NC. His team's mascot are the "Wonders" – so in our Christmas card we would dress up our 3 year old girl as his little cheerleader and our 2 year old son as a football player to tie into Daddy's team and his hard work.
