It is the most wonderful mail time of the year! Christmas card season!
Last year, we had just moved into our house and I was (literally) posting to my Facebook page asking how to mail stuff from a house with no mailbox(really!) But this year, we are now friends with our walking, door to door mailman and had so much fun putting together our family Christmas cards and giving them to him to mail off for us!
I partnered with Tiny Prints this year for our family Christmas cards and could not be happier with how they turned out!
After our family pictures last month, I had to go back and forth and back and forth and back and forth some more before finally deciding on what pictures to use!
I love the simplicity of one photo on the front, but I wanted a little something to jazz it up, so I ended up selecting “Scintillating Snowfall” red foil stamped holiday cards.
These family Christmas cards are just perfection!
I debated between vertical or horizontal family Christmas cards, red or gold font, the card shape, and more! But Tiny Prints made it so quick and easy to toss around all of my ideas. All I had to do was upload my photos and then I could plug them in and out of cards that I had already favorited (with their simple to use favoriting system!) to see how they looked.
Of course, as much as I wanted to use just one photo on the front, I couldn’t leave the back of our card completely blank!
So, I used one of my very favorite pictures of the girls from our photo shoot.
This moment was so funny while we were taking pictures, because Mabel had been so horrible the entire time but she was suddenly smiling and squealing and happy because we were letting her play in the rocks. And we got these amazing pictures of her. Meanwhile, Abigail is holding rocks up to her eyes. LOL. It’s just so ridiculous and perfect and I love it.
And I just had to include a short verse to really share what we believe that this season is all about. Hope, joy, and peace. All because our Savior came down to us, to dwell with us. Our God, Emmanuel.
But my very, very, very favorite part of our family Christmas cards this year?! The personalized stamps!!
I got to pick just one more family picture to include in our stamps and they make me SO happy. They are such a fun touch to add to the front of our envelopes and I just love them!
These officially went out on Monday, so they should be arriving in many a mailbox(or mail slot in your door, if you’re like us!) this week! 🙂
