Can you believe it’s almost time to start sending out Christmas cards? Every year we take our Christmas card photos with plenty of time to get them printed, but then every year I put off printing them until two days before Christmas. Then those same cards I planned to have as Christmas cards end up becoming New Year’s Eve cards, it is a yearly struggle. So, this year I teamed up with Shutterfly and got my Christmas cards ready with plenty of time to spare.
Shutterfly offers plenty of options to help you design a special and unique card that you will want to share with all your friends and family. When creating your card, you can select from hundreds of different designs and customize it by selecting your preferred color, paper type and what kind of trim you would like. You can even customize your envelopes. They offer envelope color and design options and they also offer patterned and solid color envelope liners. I went with a solid cream liner for my envelopes. For my cards, I decided to go with gold foil stamping and round and ticket edges. After scrolling through all the beautiful card designs they offer, I selected three separate designs: Simple Rustic Flurries, Merry Gilded Foliage and the Gilded Statement Christmas Card.
I absolutely love how they all turned out! I had to hold myself back from running straight to the post office to send them out. The only problem is now I can’t decide which one I should send. So, I need your help to decide. I labeled each card option with a number, so you can vote in the comments on which card you think is best. You can also go vote over on my Instagram.
After I used Shutterfly to design my Christmas cards, I learned that they also offer lots of really awesome personalized gifts for your loved ones. This year my dad, brother, brothers in law and David went on a fishing trip to Alaska. It was a really special trip for my dad because he rarely goes on vacations and Alaska is his happy place. So, getting to spend quality time with the boys in Alaska was really special for him. I ordered a big canvas printed with a photo they took while in Alaska, so he can hang it in his office at work and remember all the wonderful memories from his trip. I really think he is going to love it.
Whether you want to send out beautiful family Christmas cards or personalized gifts, the options are endless. Visit the Shutterfly website here to design your own Christmas card and to shop for gifts. I am so very excited to send my cards out this Christmas season, don’t forget to vote for which one I should send in the comments.
Thank you Shutterfly for sponsoring this post.
