Part of the reason I take family photos in the Fall is so that I can use those photos for our Christmas cards.
Last year I used tinyprints/shutterfly for the first time to make my Christmas cards, partly because I had an awesome coupon and partly because they had a LOT of choices within my budget.
This is last years card:
How cute, right?! The back had an update on how our family was doing and another picture. I loved them!
This year I knew I wanted to go the same route because I had such a good experience last year and this year when I got my new stamp!
How cute are these!?! And when I picked them out I thought they came on that photo paper stuff, but nope it came on like...hard board? I don't know what it's called but it's sturdy and really makes the cards look really cool. And how perfect does the card match our pictures?!
It was SUPER easy to arrange the pictures I wanted on the card, and even edit them if I needed to. There are a TON of options for each card so you really can personalize it to your own tastes. I knew I wanted to showcase how cute my family was but not over kill it and this layout I think does that well.
I, of course, used my tinyprints stamp to send all the letters out, because it just looks fancy and cool and what better occasion to use it then on your Christmas cards? (Heck, I use it for our bills but it's nice to use it for fancy stuff too!)
I hope that people think the same way about Christmas cards as I do and that these are hanging on someone's fridge, or taped to their cabinets. I hope they know that we love them and see this card as an extension of our love to say "Hey! You! We like you, have a picture of our family to remind you of that this holiday season." It's always nice to feel loved and appreciated and I know I feel both of those things every time someone troubles to send me anything, especially a Christmas card.
What do your Christmas cards look like?
