My love for sending Christmas cards is well-documented, and choosing our first cards featuring Charlie felt like such a special rite of passage! We had originally planned on sending birth announcements, but the way the timing worked out with getting things organized (turns out, organization with a newborn is not the easiest thing!), we ended up deciding to combine the announcement with our Christmas cards. It makes these Minted beauties even more special to us, and I’ve loved hearing from our family and friends as their cards arrived! I shared my favorite designs in this Christmas card round-up, and now I’m delighted to share the one we chose!
As you can see, we used photos from our newborn session with my sweet friend Callie of Nancy Ray Photography. For the front of the card, I fell in love with this photo paired with one of my other favorite designs that said “Let Heaven and Nature Sing” because I think it looks like baby Charlie is singing!! But, the “Christmas Blessings” card was our absolute favorite design, especially in the Winter Mint colorway that picked up the color of Charlie’s swaddle. The solution? We took advantage of Minted’s amazing customizability by changing the text from “Christmas Blessings” to “Let Heaven and Nature Sing.” Perfect!
We also very happily used Minted’s Address Assistant for the third time–I have most of our loved ones’ addresses already saved, and with a few quick updates for folks who have moved, it made addressing our envelopes SO easy.
What do you think of our finished card? Hugs to all who shared their favorites in my previous post! :)
Thank you so much to Minted for partnering with me on this post! They graciously provided our cards this year, but I would have used them even if they hadn’t :)
