happy holidays with minted!

Full Disclosure: Minted provided a complimentary set of holiday cards. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support Cornflake Dreams.

 now that thanksgiving is over, the holiday season is here!!! this year we got our cards from minted, my go-to spot for printed cards, invitations and stationery. they have a lot of beautiful holiday card designs to choose from. i decided to go with something simple and add a collage of travel photos from the past year! i made the collage using InDesign, saved the final design as a jpeg, and added it to my minted card design. easy peasy! i added our return address with a custom stamp (from MaeMae Paperie) on the back of the envelopes with gold ink, to finish the cards. 

[we hung up our stockings this weekend! mine was made by my great grandma and we found h's on etsy]

Do you send out holiday cards? 
If so, do you shop for cards online or in stores?

xo, 
Jillian

  2. The cards came out so cute! I was just looking into cards yesterday but decided against it for this year because I didn't want to rush to pick out a design just for the sake of sending one out!

  3. I love your photo collage. You world traveler, you :) I love Vistaprint for things like this, but don't know if I'll get around to making my cards this year. We need a good picture first!

  7. Love both of your stockings...so cool that yours is so personal. My mom made my brother's and mine and she also made Mila's. She's going to work next year on Phoenix's because they are all needlepoint....amazing, but takes forever! :)

  10. Cuuute! I love the cards, and love the stockings. Guilty confession: I've never sent out holiday cards. I was aiming to this year but I feel like I'm already behind! Maybe I'll get it together this weekend...
    Isn’t That Charming.
