unique christmas cards

I am totally excited about our holiday cards this year. First of all because it’s early in November and my cards are already in envelopes, ready to be addressed. And secondly because they are so cool.

We ordered our cards through Minted, an online stationery company that does not only holiday cards but baby announcements, weddings, and basically anything awesome relating to paper.

I was really impressed with the huge selection of Holiday Cards from Minted; in fact it was the first year I’ve had such a hard time narrowing down my choices, they were all so different from your run-of-the-mill holiday card.

In the end though, I went with the Vintage Bicycle card, and how great did they turn out? I adore the fact that I found a card with a bicycle on it to go with the photo of our family riding across the Golden Gate Bridge this summer.

    What fantastic cards! I am still waiting to do mine because the lady at Great Clips butchered my sons hair. Hopefully in around Thanksgiving it will lay flat. it sticks up in every direction. Ugh!

    At least little boy hair grows fast right? It will grow out in no time flat!


    Thank you, I'm so excited about them!


    Seriously, the selection is swoon-worthy.

    That's so cute! I have no idea if I'll ever do Christmas cards but if I do they must have class like that.

    You have to do Christmas cards! Don't let the paper tradition die. It's honestly one of my favorite parts of the holiday season, getting cards from friends I haven't seen in a while.
