All The Shimmer: Holiday Card Picks

I know this is my second Christmas post already this year, and I swear that there will be a Thanksgiving post on this little blog sometime soon, but I had to share this with y'all today!  For the second year in a row, Mike and I decided to go with Minted for our holiday cards.  Navigating to their website last week, I found that they're having an awesome "foil" event that ends today - hence the importance of this post going up today!  20% off is definitely a good excuse to get your act together and order cards in November.

We knew we were using Minted but debated whether or not to do photo cards again this year.  Last year, it was a perfect reason to share a few wedding photos with family and friends, but is it weird to do a photo card of a married couple without kids?  Well, we took a few anniversary photos this fall, so we decided to combine those for the card with photos of Charleston at Christmastime, and I'm excited to see how they turned out!

Here were my picks from Minted's foil-pressed collection:
snowflake squares
simply christmas
season of love
gilded tree
moments of jolly
stunner
gold illume
Lastly, I want to share a link-up that two of my favorite ladies are hosting next month.  I love seeing bloggers' Christmas cards, and this also helps us make sure our cards are out by mid-December - haha!  I hope you'll consider linking up with Macy and Mary on December 14th!

Love these picks! I can't wait to see your cards. I think it's totally acceptable for a married couple to send out photo cards.. bonus points if you include the pets ;)

I love minted!! We're actually ordering our cards from there this week - they have the cutest stuff and I'm so happy to be getting it done early this year!

The foil pressed collection has got to be my favorite - I love them ALL! I'm eagerly awaiting next Christmas when we'll send out our first Christmas cards. Guess I should figure out Save the Dates in the mean time? :)

Jen said...

I normally would have my card picked out by now but I am totally slacking.

These cards are so pretty! I definitely need to check out Minted this year instead of going with the ol' tried and true of Snapfish and Shutterfly <3

That gilded tree card is just darling! I'm a sucker for foil cards! I wanted to send out cards, but I sent save-the-dates so close to the holidays that I'm thinking to skip it this year which makes me sad!

Jessica said...

I love all of these! Minted has such gorgeous cards. I had been planning on splurging and getting them from here for us this year but when I look at the prices it makes me reconsider. I need to count how many I realistically want to send and use that to help me make a decision. I can't wait to see what you picked, no matter what I'm sure they will be beautiful!

Super cute card ideas. Can't wait for the linkup!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Oh my goodness! I seriously love all of this, I can't even choose just one! Obsessing over all things gold foil print lately too so these are just perfect! Can't wait to see what you picked out! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

I think you can't go wrong with any of them. Mine are ordered, and will be mailing them out the day after Thanksgiving. :)

The Southern Thing said...

Love these! I'm hoping to start a new tradition with Christmas cards. We've never sent one out as a couple yet!

Emily said...

Very pretty picks! I'm always a fan of shimmer and sparkles. Too bad I already ordered my holiday cards.

Veronica-VeroSays! said...

Thanks for sharing about Minted! Totally forgot about them! Still undecided about our cards but I'm definitely linking up! So fun!!!

Nichole @ casadecrews.com said...

So cute! We missed out on photo cards last year, and I snagged Tiny Prints for 40% off and I ordered them last week. I feel so on top of it this year! woooooo

Leigha Gardner said...

I love them all! So cute, I just love getting all the Christmas cards from all our family and friends this time of year.

Eat Drink and Be Mary said...

Yay, I can't wait to see your cards! I'm so excited for this link up and all things Christmas. :)

Carly Blogs Here said...

I don't know how you could ever decide! haha I love all of them and can't wait to see which you picked!

Julie said...

We get our pictures done on Saturday, I'm super excited and we get cards with it so once I see those, I'll decide on ordering more, etc. Can't wait to see what you picked!
