My mom has sent out Christmas cards all my life and I have often thought about when I would be able to send them out for MY family. I sent standard Christmas cards out the past two years while living on my own just to family, but now that we are married we are sending out REAL Christmas cards (real as in the kind with pictures on them lol) to our family and friends. I have put so much thought into these little things and I am SO excited with how they turned out. I checked different websites and finally found the one that we like best through Minted. I finalized our order and they should be here by the end of next week. I know it's early, but that's when the best deals are and I want to have them ready to go and mail out the first or second week of December.

Last week I put this together and it will really help when it comes time to address them and send them out! 

I can't show you the card we designed yet, but I'll share some other ones that I really liked from their website.

I absolutely LOVE the gold foil, and I think it really adds to the Christmas card.

I really like how they give you the option to change the shape and color of each card. That makes even more options!

A Newlywed Christmas card...absolutely adorable!

Of course we are using a wedding picture for our Christmas card this year, and probably the next 5  years because I just love them all. 

Do you send out Christmas cards every year? A friend of ours sends out a little update with her Christmas cards every year, telling how their year went and any big events or trips they took. Matthew and I love that idea and will probably do one next Christmas since we've only been married a couple of months.
Do you send out anything special with your Christmas cards? I love hearing new ideas! 

Also, in case you were wondering, 63 days until Christmas! :)


  1. My family always sent out Christmas cards when I was growing up, so it was something I knew I always wanted to do, too! Freddie is all about puns, so our Christmas cards have had to have something "punny" on them for the past couple of years. I love Minted and their great variety! Gah, I think looking at and hanging up everyone's Christmas cards is one of my favorite Christmas traditions!

  2. Love the ones you liked and can't wait to see what you picked! We need to try to get my dad to take some pictures for us, when we see them towards the end of November, to use for our card. Minted always has the best cards :)

  3. What a great idea to organize your Christmas card list! I love the cards Minted has. :)

  4. That is an AWESOME way to organize your Christmas card list, I love it! My family NEVER sent out Christmas cards when I was little and I always wished we did. Now, as an adult, I started sending them out with my boyfriend and I think it's an awesome tradition to have! I can't wait to see what yours look like!

  5. My parents always sent out super traditional cards with something religious on the front, never a photo card! Now that I'm married and sending my own I am all about a good photo card!

  6. The Merrily Ever After is great for newlyweds. I send out religious cards, but they can be hard to find.
