Oh my can you believe there are only 87 more days until Christmas! Yikes!
Each year I try to have a family picture taken that we can use for Christmas Cards, and each year…it seems like I end up failing! This year I was so determined to get one while we were on vacation in August. We were on a cruise, and there are so many chances to get portrait pictures done – and yet…we didn’t. We even went with my parents, so barring an actual professional picture, we could at least have my mom take one. Well we got ONE (yep, just one)…and there were a lot of shadows on it, so it is a no go as far as cards are concerened.
Thankfully, there was one good picture of my husband and I, and one of our daughter, so that I could splice them together for a card from Tiny Prints! I LOVE Tiny Prints’ selection of Christmas Cards – what makes them so appealing to me is that you can change just about anything on the template to make them ‘yours’. Colors and words allow you to make a card that suits your family to a “T”.
I’m a firm believer in having my Christmas cards say CHRISTMAS on them. Tiny Prints is a store that features lots of ‘Christmas’ cards (and many where you can add the word “Christmas” in if you like), and I found a card that reflects our family perfectly for this year’s mailings.
This is called ‘Snowing Happiness’ and I love the muted colors on it, plus the big bold typography. In the past I’ve been more of a traditional “red & green” card person, but these truly are the colors we tend to decorate with around our home and the color palate of my husband’s wardrobe!
Do you send out Christmas/Holiday cards each year? If so do you include pictures of your family on them? What kinds of cards do you like? Share with us all, so we can get some new ideas!
Disclosure; I received Christmas Cards from Tiny Prints as a thank you for sharing their selections with you through this post.
