Our New Years’ Cards (and a BIG Giveaway)

Minted New Years Cards and a $250 Giveaway

I decided a few weeks ago that this year I was going to mail New Years’ cards instead of Christmas cards, mostly due to the busyness of my daughter’s Nutcracker schedule.  I love sending and receiving cards, but this year it just seemed like a bridge too far during December.

We always pair up with Minted for our holiday cards; they are so easy to work with and the cards are exceptionally high quality.  And just like last year, they’re offering one of our readers a $250 credit!

If you’re not a slacker like me and have already sent out your cards, you can spend that credit on anything on Minted.com, like stationery, art, or home decor items.

Minted has hundreds of New Years’ cards (search them here); they also have a tool called Find it Fast™ that will show your uploaded photo in all of the photo cards, making it a snap to pick the right layout and colors.

This year, instead of writing a letter to update friends and family with our goings and doings, I decided to create a calendar card with a photo from every month of 2016.

I also take advantage of their free recipient addressing service.  Last year, I entered all the names and addresses on my card list, and this year I opened up the saved address book, double checked the list, updated a few addresses for friends who had moved, and added a few more names.  Easy!

This was my second choice–lots of text areas to hit the high points of 2016:

    Ohhhh looks like a great year and your family looks great. Probably because your a great mom!

  2. What a beautiful card. I love that it holds a picture from each month. Happy New Year!

  3. I did New Year’s cards this year too! There was so much going on. . .and decided not to be guilty about not getting out Christmas cards. When I was at my In-Law’s on Christmas I noticed on their fridge that I did New Year’s cards in 2012 (a calendar card like yours) and decided I could do that again!! Hoping to get them out today — wish I would have seen these beautiful options earlier. Thanks for the review!

  4. I like the Mohawk Home Wipe Your Paws Coir Door Mat.
