Minted.Com Holiday Cards!

Its that time of year again to whip out the camera and snap some awesome shots so you can create your own personalized holiday cards!!
Here's MY story: So I am the type of person that sends Christmas cards out every year no matter how busy I am, but in a rush I use to just pick up those packs of mixed cards you see in your local discount store and figured they'd do the trick. Thing is...they don't. As the holidays came and went I started noticing how awesome some of the cards were that people sent me and how boring mine were in comparison. Not Cool because I am not a boring person. I wanted nice writing and cool pictures and pretty envelopes!! I wanted people to get my card and say "Wow, this is neat!" and by them remembering my card they should also remember the message it came with! I know some of my friends do theirs at supercenters and they turn out okay too but I needed something simplier...I have 4 kids...theres no way I can make my Christmas cards and keep my sanity intact at a store. Then came Minted! I can now do everything I wanted to and more from my computer chair!  I can make cards with unique shaped edges, add my kids pictures to it or have no picture at all, pick out my font design and its size! I control the thickness of my paper and the color of my envelopes and can even make return labels to jazz my card up even more!! A professional will even check over your creation and fix or let you know of any problems and make you a proof to see!! The quality and designs are great, the customer service is excellent if you need any help and the price is right! So if your looking to wow your friends and family with a card this year and show them your not a "boring christmas card picker-outer" its time to start your holiday cards with Minted!!!
P.S. The style above is what I picked out! Its bright and beautiful and has plenty of places to add your own touch to it! I also decided to not have it like a traditional card but to have a family picture put right on the back (so its only front and back...no inside!) and I picked out silver envelopes instead of "boring" white and made some return labels to spice it up even more!! I hope you enjoy making your holiday cards as much as I did!! Remember to be creative...especially since you can be!! ;)
