One of the joys of parenthood, for me, is around the holiday season; yes; it is fun shopping for gifts for my boy, but...in a selfish endeavor, I get overly excited to design and send out our holiday cards. My whole life we received holiday cards from families with their gorgeous family photos on the front, and a
small large part of me couldn't wait to have my own children to show off share on our holiday cards. When Minted approached me about trying out their holiday cards this year, I couldn't have been more excited. With a plethora of gorgeous designs for every family type and holiday, Minted is the number one spot for picking out your holiday cards.
However, I'm going to be honest with you: there is one thing I absolutely adore about Minted. You can upload your photo and see it on every design! In one place! You don't have to click your favorite designs, upload your photo...and then realize it doesn't work with the card design. Now, all you do is upload your photo and bam! You can see how it would look on all the designs at once. Brilliant!
See what I mean? I have a ton of photos from our family shoot with Molly Leon Photography, and this is one of my faves. Check out that boy's smile! But more importantly...see how awesome it looks on all those designs!
Not only are there hundreds of holiday designs to chose from, but you can pick a color scheme, and of course, totally personalize the card for your family, too. You can chose a flat card (which I love), a folded card, the type of paper, the envelopes, the shape of the card...basically, you can spend all of naptime playing with your holiday cards on Minted and still need to finish up at the next naptime.
Another reason I love Minted, from a work-at-home-mom standpoint, is that it employs independent artists to create their designs; hailing from 48 states and 43 countries, as they say, "They are illustrators and textile designers, painters and packaging designers, marketers and stay-at-home moms. Some have design degrees, and others are participating in Minted competitions to learn design for the first time." I love that! Minted isn't just about creating beautiful artwork out of your photos, but it's about creating artwork which fits your lifestyle, and which will no doubt become a family heirloom.
