Happy Monday, all! I’m super excited to be starting the Awesome People doing Awesome Things series tomorrow, but I wanted to start off the week with a super exciting giveaway to share with you all.
Has everyone heard of Minted by now? If not, they’re an awesome online source for invitations, cards, art prints, and now party decor (more on that to come soon!) They also have a new awesome blog called Julep. What I love most about Minted is their attention to design. Their designs are created by a community of designers who enter seasonal challenges. The designs are then voted on by Minted members (like me and you!) to choose what they sell. Every time I get an e-mail from them with the results of a new challenge, I seriously spend hours sorting through the designs and ranking how much I like them. Its so much fun, especially since the last one was wedding invites ;)!
When I first signed up with Minted, they were offering a credit for filling out a member survey, so I had some Minted Money burning a hole in my pocket earlier this fall. I decided to be absurdly ahead of the game and order some Christmas cards for Erik and I. They arrived already a couple weeks ago, so I thought I’d share with you all the design I chose!
I couldn’t find a picture of the two of us that I loved enough to be the main image on the card, so I stuck to the non-photo card sections. My instant favorites were the Woodland Noel, Christmas Cafe, and Stylized Ornament. So many great options!!
I finally settled on Be Merry Berries because I LOVE red and aqua as a holiday combo, and it has such a whimsical scandinavian feel that I love. Erik and I both have scandinavian roots (Him Swedish and me Danish) so its a fun way to tie that in for our first joint holiday card.
I love that there are a lot of way to customize the cards so you can keep things as simple or as personal as you want. I chose to put a little message on the back with my favorite photo of us from 2012. I also chose to upgrade to kraft envelopes just to give a more natural feel.
Enough of me, lets talk about you guys! Recently Minted reach out to us, and is offering our readers (3) $50 Minted credits. That means three of you can practically pay for your holiday cards by entering (For reference, I ordered 50 cards, with an image on the back and premium envelopes and they cost me $74) Woot! We thought it would be fun to do this via pinterest since their designs are so wonderfully graphic and we want to see everyone’s favorite designs.
