Elsie’s Holiday Cards

‘Tis the season for holiday cards!! Today, we’re partnering with Minted to show you my family cards for the year as well as all my favorites (they have A LOT of good designs … it was not an easy choice!). Minted offers unique cards from independent artists around the world.

Since we have MAJOR news in our family this year with a new baby, we knew we wanted an option where we could share a LOT of photos. So we chose this design for the front of the card and then added a nine photo collage to the back.

Here’s another very similar to the one I chose—I love how you can change the colors!

Some of my other favorite designs were …

1. It’s A Wonderful Life! Super classic and photo forward.

Love this version too!

2. This one is so simple and lovely!

3. If you moved into a new home this year, this is a fun way to share your new address with family and friends.

4. Merry Everything.

5. If you want a collage front, this is my favorite one. Real talk—group photos with little kids are SO TOUGH. This collage is more forgiving if you couldn’t get that ONE perfect photo. I also love this one!

6. Love this painted look!

I love that you can upload your family photo on Minted and then scroll through all the cards seeing how YOUR photo would look. You can even text them your photo and their designers will recommend five different designs. You just send your photo to 22737 and they’ll help you style your card for free. It is way more efficient because you instantly know which designs best complement your image!

Have fun picking out YOUR holiday cards. I love this time of year so much when they start arriving every day!

xx- Elsie
