This is my first year sending Christmas cards because for some reason I felt like I had to wait till I was married to send them (anyone else?), and I am way too excited about it. I’m a bit of a self-proclaimed paper snob, so I absolutely love snail mail and stationery. Sure, e-mail is great (and much cheaper), but I refuse to let this little tradition die. There’s just something so much more meaningful about getting a hand-written note in your mailbox. My nana sends cards for every single holiday, and I swear, I look forward to those almost as much as the actual holiday itself.
It’s like a hug in your mailbox.
So in order to send a dang good hug, I worked with Minted to get my Christmas postcards. Their paper quality is on point, which makes me happy, and they always have great discounts, which makes my husband happy. They also have gorgeous designs from a plethora of artists, which makes everyone happy.
A few contenders…
Of course, in my usual indecisive fashion, I subjected all my friends and family and mostly my husband to help me pick which design I liked. (I may or may not have also had a poll on my Facebook page. DECISIONS ARE HARD, YOU GUYS.) They have so many amazing newlywed Christmas card designs, but I’m loving the simple ones I ended up choosing!
Here’s the winner! Click here to order this hand-lettered design.

Actually I’m the real winner. I mean, just look at my dashing husband. *swoon*
If you’re planning on ordering Christmas cards, now is the time to do it! Minted just extended their Cyber Monday sale until Thursday at noon and all holiday cards are 20% off + free upgraded shipping with code CM2015! Oh, if you’re ordering something else, like wedding invitations (!!!), they are offering 25% off everything else with code CM2015 as well.
Yay for sales!
