I am a huge fan of stationery! So Christmas cards are ultra exciting for me! I love choosing which style I’m into this year, and then a fun family photo to go with it. It’s a process because I’m like, SO INDECISIVE. I have a problem where I have to look at a million cards to make sure I don’t like one better before actually choosing one. But I really don’t complain because there are so many gorgeous and lovely cards out there! I really do love it and it brings me so much joy to send them out to our family and friends.
This year I used Minted, and have the past 4 years. I LOVE their cards. They offer so many fabulous designs and I always find my favorite there! Plus, they offer FREE matching envelope designs and recipient addressing, which is like, AMAZING because it saves me soooo much time to not have to write in addresses myself! Plus the matching envelope designs are really beautiful.
I chose the “Just Merry” design this year. I love more simple cards and the merry script on the bottom of the card was so pretty and simple. Plus, the white and funky script matched our urban photo (see more of our urban family photo shoot – photos by Emily Mitton Photography) perfectly! Love the black and white contrast!

And, I always pay the little extra to do the back of the card. I like to write a little bit about our year, what Ivy and Leo are in to, what John is up to, how my year went, etc., I think it personalizes the card a tad and I know my extended family appreciates the updates!
It’s been so much fun going to the mailbox each day! I LOVE seeing what designs and photos everyone uses. Really enjoy seeing our closest family and friends smiling at us each day on our board! So much cheer :)
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
