Minted Discount & Holiday Card Feature

I did not think it was possible for Minted to top the holiday cards they created for me last year. Somehow, they did!!!

This year I decided to go with their Holiday MiniBooks TM  for our family Christmas cards. Oh, I am completely smitten. This seven page "booklet" as they call it, is filled with text and photos, hand-grommeted for a perfect finish.

I found this style card perfect for a combo "New Address" and Christmas card, which is exactly what I was looking for. You also know from my blog posts that I enjoy writing, a LOT. The Holiday MiniBookTM gave me the chance to write three paragraphs, each to their own page, sharing everything I wanted to with our family and friends. I also was able to share 4 photos, thus no hard time deciding which photo to select this year!

One thing I did have trouble with was selecting a Holiday MiniBookTM design. There were just too many fabulous ones to choose from. SO, I decided to order not one but TWO designs!!! The reason this was even an option for me, was that Minted allowed me to order in small increments (15 the minimum, which was just the right amount for my second design).

The heavy cardstock and crisp print quality thrill me. With a passion for paper and years of experience in the high-end stationery industry, I have seen and felt a lot of paper, and a lot of holiday cards. These cards are certainly among the best, and recipients of the cards I sent last year went out of their way to tell me so.

The first design I chose was a classic, Warm Wishes, which worked beautifully with our family photo by Liza Voll Photography, featured on its cover.

I loved how we could customize the text on the cover with "Our New Home"!!! The second page featured one of my favorite photos of Noah, also by the incredible Liza of Liza Voll Photography.

The second design I chose was "Merry Bright Cheer" in non-traditional green and yellow. I was drawn to all details of this card, and the "preppy" stripes sealed the deal for me with this one.

I chose to go with a sepia-tone for all photos in this card, as it coordinated and didn't compete with the colors of the design. Perfect!

So excited to put these in the mail this week. All-time record for me, getting out cards out by Thanksgiving!!!

Ending today, Minted is offering a 20% discount on holiday cards orders of $150 or more, and 15% orders of $100 or more!!! Use code BFHOL13.
