Every year I love receiving Christmas cards from family and friends I haven’t seen in a long time. I especially love the ones with family photos because people change, especially kids, and it’s just nice to see how they have grown.
I even like reading the letters people send out updating everyone on what their family has been up to the last year. Milestones, achievements, activities. It’s so hard to keep in touch some times, I like at least that little bit of connection.
One of the challenges I face every year when making our Christmas cards is in finding a design I like that also goes along with the photos we have. I want something fresh and unique and unlike anyone else’s Christmas cards. And while I like receiving those Christmas letters, I just can’t seem to find the time or motivation to write one of our own, so I like a Christmas card that allows me some flexibility to put a little more than just a picture on it.

When it came time to design our Christmas card on Minted I was faced with a very difficult decision.
Which one to choose!
They have so many unique designs it really was not an easy choice, but in the end the one I did choose fit our picture perfectly.
The design process on Minted was very straightforward and I was impressed that each card came with so many different options available to make them exactly suit your needs and your budget.
