Our Minted Holiday Card
I’m so excited to share with you all our Minted holiday card 2018! I always love sending and receiving holiday cards. Snail mails aren’t sent out as often because of how accessible emails, texts, and apps for messaging are. Which makes me kind of sad because they’re so exciting to receive!
I love that during the holiday season, snail mailing your holiday card is still a thing! I get so excited whenever we get one in the mail. It is so fun seeing everyone’s holiday card style, reading their messages, and life updates!
Our go to for holiday cards has been Minted. As you can see, last year was from Minted, the year before where we went to a tree farm was from Minted, and the year before that we used our wedding photos, you get the picture we love using Minted.
If you are interested in getting your holiday card through Minted, they are currently offering 20% off their holiday cards with the promo code WINTER18.
This Year’s Photo Was Different
Usually, we like to theme our Christmas cards around the holiday season/winter season. And of course, Tre loves the traditional Christmas colors. This year was a little different.
As you can see, this photo is not related to Christmas or Winter. It was a photo taken over the summer on our three year anniversary post. Somehow it snuck up on us that we didn’t take any holiday photos together. So by the time we realized we should start ordering our photos, we didn’t think there would be enough time to get the photos taken and order them.
Also, the colors aren’t Christmas colors. But it worked so well with our photo! This year was filled with joy compared to last year, and it was just so fitting for us. We wanted our Minted holiday card to express what our year has been like for us!
Our Minted Holiday Card is called Laurel Ring, and it is created by the artist Baumbirdy. The artist is from Chicago which makes me even more happy we selected this design. I feel like I am supporting a local artist. If you didn’t know this, Minted utilizes designs from independent artists. This means you will not find the same design anywhere else except from the artist or in Minted. I love the uniqueness!
You could also get the ‘Joy’ foil-pressed if you want to add more “oomf” to your card! Minted has a section dedicated to Foil Pressed holiday cards.
Why We Love Minted Holiday Cards
Aside from Minted having the cutest and most unique holiday cards, we love that it is a hassle-free holiday card. Our favorite feature is the free recipient addressing. All we have to do is upload the names and corresponding mailing addresses of the recipients, and they are printed on each envelope. So all we have to do when we receive the cards is stuff the envelopes! Well, I also love to add cute washi tapes to seal the envelops, but otherwise there is little to no work to it.
The free recipient addressing on the envelopes has been a huge time saver (and we all know our time is so valuable especially around the holidays) because I have a large family. So trying to address every envelope would take forever! In addition to family, we wanted to send out cards to our friends and people who have been there for us especially when I was diagnosed with cancer. How about you guys? Do you like sending out holiday cards?
Hope you like our Minted Holiday Card 2018 from the DiMares!
