Minted Christmas Card & $150 Giveaway

Minted Christmas Cards-6

I’ve been a Christmas Card girl as long as I can remember. I would run to the mail box as a kid the whole month of December looking for more Christmas Cards to open and hang on the fireplace mantle. Our first Christmas as “the Mayberrys” I took full advantage of the chance to make Christmas cards! Do something once around me and I like it? I’ll make it tradition! So we’ve been doing it ever since. I’ve also saved every card and one day I hope to do something cool with them all  (let me know if you have any fun ideas!!!)

Every year I slightly agonize over our Christmas cards. It is slightly embracing but I just really like them to be cute, affordable, and um, cute! Haha! There are so many designs on Minted that just narrowing it down to the one that “totally represents us this year” is not always an easy task. This year when I was asking Bruce about my top 4 choices, he said that they all look wonderful and no choice would be the wrong one. I needed that and went with

It was 2013 when I made my first Minted Christmas cards and I loved them so much I made it tradition (see a pattern here?!) Last year I was able to give you the chance to win $150 to Minted to make your own cards and this year we are so excited to be able to do it again!!!

    I LOVE Minted and the wax seal idea! Beautiful cards

    • Lauren S.

      …and my favorite is the Winter Brush (sorry! got cut off)

    i’m leaning towards that classically scripted christmas cards – sooo beautiful!

    I love the Simple Elegance cards. Also, I was listening to a program on the radio the other day and the lady was saying that every year, she puts her family Christmas card with their family Christmas letter in a scrapbook/photo album that she gets out every year to set out on a coffee table. I don’t know if you write a yearly letter with your cards, but I thought that was a super great idea. It’s so cool to reflect back on the year and see what God has done and then to have a beautiful card that goes with the year! Just a thought, since you had mentioned in this post that you wanted something to do with your old cards 🙂

  • I love Minted’s designs every year! My favorite this year is the Embellished holiday card (http://www.minted.com/product/holiday-photo-cards/MIN-YVW-HYC/embellished?ccId=630353&agI=0&org=title) because the logo with the last name is lovely!

  • I love all the journal designs so much!!! 🙂 Especially this one 🙂 http://www.minted.com/product/notebooks/MIN-MBX-NBK/amaryllis?ccId=354215&org=photo

  • I love their it’s a wonderful life card! Your cards are so lovely, Beth! Christmas cards are the best!

  • Look at that fancy wax sealed stamp 😀 Beautiful Christmas card!

  • I am soooooo excited to send out our FIRST Christmas card this year!!! This holiday season is going to be so fun and full of wonderful “first” memories.

    My favorited Minted card is the “winter brush” with gold foil-pressed lettering! Oh lala!

  • valerie

    ok this is kind of funny….but my favorite design is the ‘winter botanicals’ — the exact design you have! and i actually ordered mine last week and am supposed to get them in the mail today (which i am so so excited for :)). i got the ‘latte’ color though, so they are not the exact same. i guess great minds just think alike ;). if i won i’d love to use the credit for some wall art for our living room! we just painted it white and since nothings hanging on the walls yet it’s lookin’ rather bleak hahah :p

  • Katie Purnell

    Ah I love Minted so much! My husband and I got married last year, and sending Christmas cards has been a fun new tradition to start. I would love to purchase some this year. I would definitely get the “splash” gold foil cards. (http://www.minted.com/product/foil-pressed-holiday-cards/MIN-XSF-HFS/splash?ccId=626935&org=ql) Gold foil = swoon
