This is our second year sending out personalized photo holiday cards,Â and since most of our family (and some of ourÂ friends) live far away, they haven’t seen Sophie for a while â€“ or even met Alice! We have a lot to catch our family and friends up on, and it seemed like it might be too big of a challenge for our annual holiday cards. But when I heard that Minted released a brand new holiday card format called the Booklette, I was dying to give them a try. Today I’m excited to share the cards that we chose!
Minted currently offers 43 Booklette holiday card designsÂ â€“ ranging from clean and modern to playful hand lettering and everything in between. I’m a big fan of sending out New Year’s cards (gives us procrastinators a bit more time!), and I love that this particular card design uses one of my favorite calligraphy fonts â€“ Asterism. With eight pages of photos and text, we were able to include a few sweet photos of the girls (taken by the fabulous Sweet Root Village) and an updated family photo, along with a brief text update about Sophie and Alice. It was the perfect fit for our growing family!
I also love love love that Minted introduced coordinating envelopes with recipient address printing! Not only are the new envelope designs totally cute, but they’re such a lifesaver for those of us who struggle to find the time to sit down and address dozens of cards all at the same time. It took me weeksÂ to address our cards last year â€“ when we only had one child â€“ and they were ridiculously late as a result. I’m so grateful to be getting them out on time this year!
If you’re still in need of holiday cards â€“ there’s still time to send them out! (Or just go with New Year’s cards like I do.) You can browse the Minted Booklette holiday card designs right here!
