I know some of you like to get a jump on your holiday cards, so today I’m sharing a look at my favourite new offerings from Minted, plus a sweet giveaway you’ll love. It’s the most, won-der-ful tiiiiiiiime, of the year! (Well almost. But I’m feeling festive.)
If you don’t know Minted, I promise yule love it. It’s a design marketplace of independent artists from around the world, known for its gorgeous assortment of stationery, art, home decor and more. You can order everything online (the company is based in the US and ships to over 200 countries) and the collection is always growing.
What I especially love about the holiday cards (besides the cheery designs and matching envelopes and the thick and luxurious paper) is the free addressing that’s included. I used the service last year for our cards and oh em gee mes amies — how fun it was to see them arrive with the addresses already done so profesh! ‘Course that left me no excuse to send them late.
Midnight blues, graphic black & white, botanical wreaths, and glittery foil are all big this year, along with foil-pressed holiday cards in gold, silver, and rose gold and photo letterpress cards paired with unique inks and vibrant colors.
Minted also offers postcards, ornament cards and eight unique die-cut shapes. (I like the snowflakes that come tied with ribbons so you can hang them on the tree or wherever.) And this year you can chose from a variety of options for the back of the card too.
What do you think? Do you love?
