Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Card



I take Christmas cards pretty seriously. I’m actually super nerdy about them. I think about them months in advance- always trying to come up with something extra special. This year got away from me though. I thought it was going to be a wash but then one day as I was looking on Minted, I realized I had forgotten about the idea of a New Year card! Boom! Minted has such a great selection of New Years cards to chose from. I am pretty obsessed with all the foil stamped ones they have. Did any of you get Christmas cards from friends with the foil? We did and they were instantly my favorites. Anyway, we decided to go with one of their Booklette cards. We have so many friends and family members scattered across the country and Canada, we figured it was a great way to catch everyone up to speed really quick on our year. The quality of the cards can’t be beat (love the gold staples they used in the binding)! I am pretty smitten with how they came out! Plus! Don’t get me started on how excited I am that all the envelopes came addressed already!

If you didn’t get around to getting out a Christmas card- try sending a New Year card instead!! Best part about it? I would say any time in January is still an appropriate time to send one out! No rush needed. If you are interested in winning a $300 gift certificate to use on New Year cards from Minted, head over to Instagram and tag your favorite photo you posted this past year with #newyearswithminted to be entered. One person will be randomly selected from entries.





Here are a few more photos from our photoshoot for the card…

  1. Wow! I have never heard of New Years cards but I love this idea and I know some grandparents and other family members that would cherish these little gems. Happy New Years!

  2. These cards are absolutely beautiful! New Years cards are a great idea- I will have to remember that for next year when I’m stressing about Christmas cards getting out in time.

  3. That mistletoe one with Kev and Rowan will go down in history! Definitely wedding slideshow worthy in another 20 years 🙂

  4. OK….I love your cards every year–but these…WOW! I can’t decide which is my favorite! They are all so stinking cute!! (I’ll be checking my mail! ;))
    XOXO Happy New Year–I’m hoping for some great times with you in 2015!
