Tis the Season for Christmas Cards!

Holiday card season is upon us, and oh how I do love a good Christmas card!  My parents always sent Christmas cards out by the dozens, which in turn meant we received a bounty of them ourselves.  I fondly emember stalking the mailbox with my sisters, pouring over the new cards, the shining smiles, the gold embossed into the paper, arranging our new cards and adding them to our artful display in our kitchen.

For many years, my mom handmade all of our Christmas cards, which I appreciate now more than ever as an adult, being able to now fully recognize the amount of time and effort she invested into this favorite tradition.  Nowadays, the templates available online are light years ahead of the options available when we were kids.  Again, I'm turning to good ol' dependable Tiny Prints for our first holiday card as a family of three this year, whose printed cards always turn out polished and classy (also because they frequently offer sweet discount codes!).

Some of my favorites include...
 {Christmas caroling}
{Bold and bright}
 {Simple and sweet}
{Arrows and snowflakes}

Are you a Christmas/holiday card giver?

It's become one of my favorite traditions as well. My boys love getting the mail every day to see what cards we got! I usually go with Minted, but I went with Tiny Prints this year too. Beautiful and easy!

Oh I love all of these. We decided not to do any this year since it was too hard to send from abroad. Next year! :)

My favorite is the top one! I love sending and receiving Christmas cards, and displaying them as Christmas decorations. My grandparents always had the back of their door filled with greetings from friends and family, and I loved looking through them all.

I got mine the other day -- I ordered the bulk through Minted this year. Their Black Friday/Thanksgiving deal codes were slightly better than Tiny Prints, who we usually go through...the nice thing is that I left a project in my Tiny Prints cart -- they sent me a $30 off coupon to finish my order, so I got a small order of cards from TP too!

I'm all about the 2nd to last with the car and the tree on top. Of course you don't get the picture with the card, but I think it's cool! Make sure to post yours when you decide. ( :
