Holiday traditions have always been a big deal on both sides of our family, and I am really enjoying this season of creating our own traditions with our littles. One tradition that we started when Brooke was born was fall family photos to go on our Wintertide. This year, pictures were a little different from last year, because we were chasing a mini toddler around that just wanted to explore. I know next year will be so interesting chasing Brooke around and trying to get our little man to smile. It makes my heart so full just thinking about it.
Once we got our photos from our photographer, I couldn’t wait to check out Wintertide Holiday line up this year. They always have the most unique selection of cards and I love that you can get everything to match all in one place. I always have them print our return address on the cards, select an envelope liner and get a custom stamp that matches. The absolute BEST FEATURE of Minted to me is their FREE recipient addressing. You can add all of your contacts to your address book on your Minted account, and then you just select the people you want to receive your card. This saves so much time when it comes to addressing all your cards, plus it allows you to keep all of your contacts in one place for each time you need cards.
I use Minted for all of our card and invitation needs, so its always incredibly convenient to have all of my addresses in one place. Before this feature, I use to spend hours tracking down addresses and hand addressing each envelope one they arrived. Now, when our Minted Holiday Cards arrive, I just slip in the envelope liners, stuff the cards in the envelopes and place the stamp on them. It is such a simple process and everything looks amazing because it matches perfectly!
After carefully looking through all of their designs for this year, I selected this Wintertide, because I am really into the holly wintergreen look right now. I think it just looks so classic and perfect for the season. I am in love with how they turned out and I can’t wait to get them in the mail at the end of the month. I am sharing my cards slightly early this year, because I have an awesome opportunity for you.
