Yes, I KNOW it is still just the beginning of October, and the holidays are quite a bit away still (As of today, October 10, there are 75 more days til Christmas!) But, I wanted tell you about Minted.com. The Minted website is a place where you can design your own holiday cards. They have over 400 designs to choose from. You can pick postcards, folded cards, petite cards, cards with different shapes. And, with most of them, you can choose different colors for the printed message. And you can get flat print or foil pressed print. That is a lot of different choices to make. But really, after you decide on a design, it is easy to set up the rest of the card for ordering. Did I say that you can get these cards with your own photos on them, too?
While I was looking through the different designs, I found several that were perfect for me and Fabgrandpa. We are not much into Christmas, or Holiday, or decorating of any kind for that matter, but I was impressed that some of these cards expressed US so well. For instance:
People who know us know that we laugh. A lot. This card would be perfect for us to send out. With our photo, of course.
Or, this one, because we are known for nor putting a lot of emphasis on Christmas decorating or all things glittery associated with the holiday. It is us, to a T:
And then I saw this one! I am a country girl, through and through, and y’all is a word firmly embedded in my vocabulary. I LOVE this card. It’s like this one was designed with me in mind:
But then, I couldn’t decide if I wanted straight edges or shaped edges:
And I was still not done yet. I could choose different designs for the inside:
And different design options for the back:
With all these choice, you need more time to decide exactly how you want your cards to look. And, with Minted.com, you can guarantee that your holiday cards will be unique, and that they will be ones that really show your own personality.
