My Holiday Cards from Tiny Prints are Here!
I get so excited for our family holiday photo day and then the holiday cards! Getting mail is so lame most of the year with bills and junk mail. After Thanksgiving, I love going out to get the mail and seeing all the different color envelopes with my address handwritten on the front from family and friends. We like to hang all the cards on a pretty length of ribbon with the tiniest clothespins. The kids, now getting older, can read the sentiments and see pictures of our family from back home in Rhode Island.
Well, today the mail carrier dropped my Tiny Prints box of cards to the front door around 8:30am! They are working extra hard making sure every package is delivered and I was wondering if they would arrive during the day of in the late afternoon or evening. I was hoping to get some cards back into the mailbox before the second mail run in the late afternoon today! Christmas is just eleven days away!
I have been ordering my holiday cards from Tiny Prints and Shutterfly since Gabriella was born. They have tons of designs to chose from. The cards are totally customizable by YOU, and they are just gorgeous quality. The paper is a nice weight, you can get a flat or folded card, add as many photos you like, or none at all, even have them mailed right to the recipient if you are short on time.
I am really loving the elegant simplicity of the card I selected this year. It is a Flat Foil Card with a simple design to compliment our photo. This card has some elegant foil touches which I just love for holiday cards. It is such a classic touch. The foil-stamped cards are debossed with real foil for a stunning statement. This card is called the “spotted snowflake” and is a 5×7 flat card. I love how I could opt for adding another photo and text on the back of the card too. I love adding a photo of just the kids together! The day we took our photos this year was insanely windy and cold. We typically shoot our photo in late September, but last year it was a heat wave the day we went out for the photo. My husband was in layers including a wool sweater! He wasn’t a happy camper that hour but the photos turned out great! You can never tell from the photos if we are hot or cold, but there is always a good story! So, this year we waited until mid-October and it was a blustery cold day. At least it was sunny! You just can never predict the weather for these things!
Look at how the custom envelopes give the card an added touch. The whole thing comes together like a little package for your recipient. If you add the custom envelopes as I did here it includes free printed addressing. The liner really makes this come together like custom stationary but at a fraction of the cost. Right now you can still order your holiday cards with guaranteed delivery before Christmas. Order today, get your cards in two business days with 50% off rush shipping. I even like the idea of a New Year’s card if you just don’t have the time to get them out before Christmas.
