Confession time. I hardly ever remember to send out holiday cards. Every year I mean to, but life gets in the way and before I know it the window has passed. This year I’m going to try to do better. I browsed through Shutterfly’s huge holiday card collection to find the perfect card for us, and and I thought I’d share some of my shortlisted cards with you. What do you think?
I love the simplicity of this design, and the gold foil really pops on the black and white photo!
I love how this card just cuts to the chase. “Merry Everything!”
I’m loving the vintage black, white, and red palette of this Banner Blessings card.
I always have a hard time deciding which pictures to send, but this Magic and Wonder tri fold card has room for five on the front, plus room for more photos and wishes on the back, too. Win!
I think this one was made for us. This is me almost every year!
I was happy to see that Shutterfly has some new card designs for 2013. They’ve got 5×7 folded tri fold and back of card designs. This year’s collection includes:
- Classic: Traditional colors, iconic illustrations, aspirational sentiments, snowflakes, monogram
- Contemporary: trend forward colors, texture and layering, water color techniques, shine, glitter, Instagram pictures are perfect for this style
- Whimsy: humor and nostalgia meet, fun sentiments
- Merry and Bright: all about color and having fun
- Religious: metallic type treatments, incorporated story ideas
- Photo Basics: multiple colors, vertical type, family name highlights
Don’t forget that Shutterfly also has great photo gifts! Last year I made personalized photo plates for my daughters. They’re nice and big so we like using them for cut veggies at dinner. The girls absolutely love them and still get excited when it’s their plate’s “turn”. While I was checking out cards I saw they’ve got some new ornaments this year. I think I’ll be picking up at least one for our tree.
