(We have yet to have holiday photos taken, so you can just look at the nugget for now.)
I haven't sent out Christmas cards for years, to be completely honest. First of all, I am easily stressed out—even more so during the holidays. Adding one more thing to my plate stresses the heck out of me. Second of all, I refuse to send out cards without photos, and Jay and I rarely have decent photos taken of us together. It's a little depressing, actually. Third of all, I'm a non-decision maker and it takes me forever to settle on what cards to actually send out.
However, considering we are now officially a tiny, little family, I know this year is the year I'm going to finally buckle down and send out Christmas cards to our loved ones! Now that I think about it, I'm a little bit excited.
Anyhow, I was asked to take a peek at the selection of holiday cards over at Shutterfly, and was quite pleased with the gorgeous designs they are offering this year. I've ordered prints (and a photo book!) from Shutterfly in the past, and have always been pleased with the quality, price and quick shipping. I'm very eager to see how the Christmas cards I end up choosing look in person! I knew I wanted to find something unique and colorful, and (although I have yet to make my final decision, as per the usual) I have a feeling I'm going to adore our first family Christmas cards.
Here are a few things I like about the selection over at Shutterfly:
- There are hundreds of designs to choose from, which make it easy to find one to fit your personality.
- When you choose your card, you can order either matte or glossy (I'm a matte girl, so this is really appreciated!). I'm not sure if this goes for all the cards, but the designs I was head over heels for all had that option.
- Typography, typography, typography!
- I've recently discovered the bold and bright style of Erin Condren, and she has a gorgeous line of holiday and New Year cards through Shutterfly. I know many of my bloggy friends swear my her planners (I adore the one I have!), and I'm sure her cards are going to be very popular this year, too.
Here's the best part: Shutterfly has given me the opportunity to give 25 FREE holiday cards to three of my readers! Hurrah!
