Christmas Cards + Minted Giveaway

With good old fashioned mail between friends becoming a thing of the past, one of my favorite things about the holiday season is sending & receiving Christmas cards! It makes getting the mail each day so much more fun, Harper especially loves to tear open envelopes to see all of our sweet friends’ smiling faces on cards. And my love for design & type makes me especially excited to pick out our card!! I finally narrowed it down to the two below, and decided I am going to let Harper pick her favorite to send out! πŸ˜‰

  1. I would definitely have to order the It's A Wonderful Life cards. This would be perfect because a few days ago I had decided I just didn't have the time to send out cards this year with a toddler running around!

  2. Both cards are beautiful options! I love So Much Fun by Jessica Williams or Winter Brights
    by toast & laurel. So many great options. How to pick JUST ONE?!?! Maybe I'll buy some of both and then what card I send to people will be a SURPRISE!!!!

  3. Minted is one of my go-to websites for online cards! I actually ordered our Christmas cards through minted this year! LOVED THEM.. and so did our friends and family! I've started a Snail Mail Revolution and send out 10 cards a week to different family and friends all over the world! I would love to have some cards ready made to send out! I love the 'brushed up' stationary, Impression 2, Poppy talk! Gosh, honestly, I love all the stationary!! haha!! Thanks Minted for being so kick butt at what you do! Happy Holidays to all!

  4. I love your blog! The girls are always adorable and you are super mom! I'm a new mom to a beautiful little 4 month old girl and love shopping for similar outfits to the girls. Your writing style is awesome and I always enjoy catching up!
    For the Minted giveaway I would love the New Years Sentiment card. We already ordered Christmas cards but everyone loves pictures of babies right?!

  5. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our first child, a baby boy due 1/4! πŸ™‚ So we will be planning on sending a holiday birth announcement! I love the "counting our blessings" card and would love to send those out! πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas and I love your holiday cards!!

  6. I already ordered our cards through minted- love them! Great designs and quality- it was hard to narrow it down. I love both your options above- they're both my favorite! πŸ˜‰

  7. I would order the "More The Merrier" design. Our newborn under the "peace" caption, hubby and I under "love" and our silly, funny, wonderful 3 year old under "joy"! Merry Christmas to your sweet family!

  8. Oh I would love to win! My christmas cards are sitting in my minted shopping basket, but they aren't really in our budget this year. It is our first christmas as a married couple and I really want to commemorate it, but i'm not sure if I can justify the price :/

  9. I would get one of their birth announcement card options for the arrival of my little babe in the spring! Love your photo Jessica!

  10. We got the one on the right, with the gold frame. And I got crafty and cut out the center of one and used it as a mat inside a black frame and a photo from our last vacation. So special with the gold!! I think that the navy/rosegold version would be fantastic too.

  11. I love both of those options! I am so behind this year, but my husband, two year old daughter and I all dressed up in our matching elf pajamas over the weekend and took our own photo, haha. I love the card that says "MERRY" in all different colors!

  12. I LOVE Minted! I have too many favorites but I love the "These Wonderful Things", I'm a sucker for foil! But, "The More The Merrier" card might be a perfect way to announce our pregnancy (yes we are expecting#2 πŸ™‚ !) to family and friends, instead of the traditional Facebook post.

  13. Really love the painted foliage frame foil-pressed holiday card.
    I've never commented before but have been following your blog since pregnancy #1. Love seeing your post and reading all the funny and sweet moments motherhood holds. Thanks for continuing to blog!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!


  14. I love the Cherry Merry one! I think I would put a pic of my daughter Fiona and do some New Year's cards since I missed Christmas this year! That would be an unexpected surprise for my friends and family!

    Love your card by the way! How do you look so great after 3 kids!?

  15. I love minted! and I've loved watching your fam grow since Harper!
    Christmas would have to be Stylish and Merry
    for New Years, I would love the handlettered charm with round edges. Timeless, and perfect to showcase our new family of 3:) or Burst of Happy!

  16. Being a Mom of two under two (20month old and 3 month old) we have not had a known for Christmas cards…so…i would totally order New Year's cards!!! My favorite…Glamorous Confetti!!!

  17. I LOVE the gold foil cards! My two favorites are the "Snowflake Wishes" and "These Wonderful Things." I think the "These Wonderful Things" cards are perfect for our family; we have a 5 month old little girl and we are so over the moon to have her, we are always saying that we wish we could just stop time and savor every wonderful moment with her! πŸ™‚

  18. Love all of the designs, but Merry Holiday & Hand lettered Charm are favorites. I would love to use Minted for my thank you cards for my wedding that is only two weeks away, the Gold Rush and Midnight Foliage.

  19. Hands down it would be the "Let Joy Overflow" design if I still needed cards! Simple, timeless and heart happy message for the win!

  20. What an awesome family photo! You look HOT Mama πŸ™‚
    We just had a new baby and would love to send out Christmas cards to show off our sweet boys! I love all the card options but the simplicity of the Holiday Revelry photo card is amazing! πŸ™‚

  21. We're using our holiday/new years card this year to announce that we're expecting! We LOVE the "the BEST is yet to come" saying on the Bright Future card. Taking our photo today!!

  22. It's a Wonderful life-foiled cards! Gorgeous!!!!
    Our 10 month old daughter has completed our family (she has a 2 year old brother). My life is complete and wonderful and I can not wait to celebrate this year.

  23. I have never used minted, this would be a great chance to try them! I like the Amazing Frame card, I think it would be a great invite for our New Years eve gathering. Addie M.

  24. We're moving into a new house this Christmas, and I would LOVE to send combined Christmas/new address cards. I've been coveting the ones on Minted's site forever! Plus, they'd be such a great way to send an "extra" wedding picture to our friends & family (wedding was in April). πŸ™‚

  25. Oh Jessica, I love the cards you do each year! Beautiful family! Love your dress! I would absolutely LOVE to order the script frame, heaven + nature, splash, or burst of happy πŸ™‚ PICK ME!

  26. Love your Christmas cards!!!! Great idea for a tree farm and obsessed with your dressed. I have already done my Christmas cards but I would love to have a more recent family photo and do some happy New Years cards from minted if I won:)

  27. I am IN LOVE with the gold pressed cards too! I would order the Whimsical Branches cards if I won! πŸ™‚ What an awesome giveaway, and your cards turned out adorable!!

  28. Omg yes please. I totally dropped the ball sending out birth announcements and Christmas cards οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½. I love everything minted but especially the "pure happy" new years card οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½

  29. I would love to win this and use it to buy some prints from Minted. Their products are amazing. I don't think I'd have time to get Christmas cards out in the next week but I'd love to use the credit towards some prints for my 2 year old daughter's room. Your my favorite blogger by the way! And your Christmas pictures are gorgeous.

  30. Well, I've already finished my Christmas cards, but last night we just found out we are moving across the country in a few months, and I absolutely love the "A New State" moving announcements! It's hard enough to move cross country, but I know our friends won't forget to write down our address with these cute cards!

  31. I'm a big fan of the foiled pressed New Years card "Elated".

    The message on the card is exactly what we all need to remember going into the new year, especially with all the hard times our world seems to be having. Let's not forget to share peace love joy and happiness to one another! Happy Holidays Garvin and Co!

  32. As much as I would love to send out Christmas cards this year my procrastinating tush says haha that wont happen ! But I do love the bold sparkle foil-pressed holiday card for the new year !!

  33. I am loving the Glimmery gold cards! Your family is just so adorable. You are my inspiration. My little boy was born only a few days after Claire πŸ™‚

  34. We already ordered our christmas cards from minted. Amazing designs, love the free printed addresses. We ordered the gold it's a wonderful life but would love to have a beautiful framed picture of our precious card along with countless other things. Thank you!

  35. I love the Wonderful Life card as well! It's one of my favorite holiday movies! (Although, I think all holiday movies are my favorite :)) With our wedding coming up next year I'd love to send a new years card with some of our new engagement pictures we just got taken! Exciting things for us in 2016! πŸ™‚

  36. Active Duty military, pregnant with number two, living in Japan- sadly won't be seeing extended family this year but at least my husband and son are here! Would love to send some late Christmas/ New Year's cards! Love the gold foil pressed cards!!!!

    On a side note, I've been reading your blog for years now! Love it! Helps to keep me sane when I feel like the world is just spinning around me!!!! Merry Christmas!

  37. I discovered Minted last year through Little Baby Garvin. Since then, I have fallen in love with all of their beautiful designs! I love the Merry Scriptmas foil-pressed card!

  38. I would definitely choose Heaven + Nature Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards! We spent last Saturday morning at the holiday beach run, our version of a "white Christmas." Perfect combination of Heaven & Nature!

  39. I love the "Season to be Jolly" card and have even gone so far to pre-order it, but am now banging my head against the wall since we have yet to take a family photo that doesn't include the back of my threenager's head! I will even settle for a scowl at this point (which would actually be quite cute and ironic, considering the card says Tis the Season to be Jolly πŸ™‚ I should've gone with a New Year's card! Ahh well. Happy holidays to you and your adorable family!!!

  40. I love the It's A Wonderful Life card too with white writing and either the second to the far right edge or the last option(scalloped) if I could order some for myself and my family. We haven't gotten ours yet (oops!)

  41. Jessica! Your Christmas card is absolutely beautiful! I love your outfit and the babies all look so sweet. I have always wanted to order from Minted…fingers and toes crossed. My favorite is the gold foil, Burst of Happy New Years card. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Xo

  42. You have a beautiful family! We already ordered, received and sent out our Christmas cards (So Merry) from I loved the ease of downloading your addresses to be printed on the envelopes. I would use this credit for some mintedart!

  43. It's my daughter's first Christmas and we are in the process of moving into our first home. Needless to say, our holiday card has not gone out yet since we are still living out of boxes. I would love to get these cards to send out, plus with the giveaway, it would really help us out since all our current funds have gone to the move! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity!

  44. There are waaaay too many amazing options but I think I would have to settle on the gorgeous "Winter Botanicals" Design Challenge Winner card. Beautifully festive while not being too over-the-top.

  46. Dang I tbought I commented last night but I don't see it. I Totally dropped the ball this year with both our seconds birth announcements and Christmas cards ??. I'd love to win! Minted has some super cute birth announcement holiday/new year card which would be perfect! Best of both worlds!!! ???

  47. love your cards so much! it'd be hard to pick but i'd go with the 'winter botanicals holiday card' in the latte color. it reminds me of something from my favorite store, anthropologie πŸ™‚

  48. I have had my eye on the Big Baby Name Birth Announcement postcard for months now, not as a Christmas card but for when our first baby arrives in a couple months! I love everything Minted puts out and especially love the option to have addresses printed. The $200 credit would let me order these beautiful birth announcements without worrying about the extra cost when our sweet baby girl gets here!

  49. I absolutely love the gold foil pressed cards! 1. Because well it's gold! And 2. I feel like it ads a personal touch! Just love them!

    Your cards are super cute and I especially love the one on the left. We also have three little girls and this time of year is so much fun with little ones. Merry Christmas!

  52. I love the It's a wonderful life card and used that this year for our Christmas cards. I also love the one that says "We wish you a Merry Christmas" in the shape of a Christmas tree, I also used those to send as cards as I couldn't decide between the two πŸ™‚

  53. The winter pines foil-pressed holiday cards are so beautiful and I would love to send them to our family and friends back home in Virginia as we are living overseas and miss them dearly!

  54. Ok that was way too hard! I really like the Merry Sparkle Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards, because I can use individual photos, which lets face it, is way easier with a 2 year old and 6 month old πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. I always love their rose gold foil pressed cards BUT my new favorite is the Reindeer Love by Cass Loh! If you haven't seen it, check it out-so beautiful!! I would even want to keep one to frame πŸ™‚

    And that is such a sweet idea, letting Harper have the final say for the holiday cards β™‘ They are both beautiful, you can't go wrong πŸ™‚

  56. This would be so perfect since I am not on the ball this year and still haven't ordered our cards yet, oops! I love the it's a wonderful life! You have a beautiful family!

  57. Already sent out our Christmas cards, but would love to use the credit for first birthday invitations! We prayed for our sweet babe for so long that I love using every excuse to see her sweet mug in print!

  58. They're all so beautiful. Because my daughters bday is right before Christmas I'd choose Best of the Best postcard to highlight her biggest milestones this year!

  59. Oh this would be a dream!!!! I would love the Merry Triptych! I never sent baby announcements when I had my new baby, Dottie, in the spring so this would be a great way to show her off to all our family and friends!!

  60. Great Christmas card!! We've already sent out our Christmas cards for the season, but we would use the credit towards our wedding invitations! I love, love, love the "watercolor floral" design! Thanks!

  61. We'll be using our Christmas cards to announce the birth of our daughter. I'm torn between Life is Wonderful and Christmas Blessings. Both are fitting as she arrived following a serious automobile accident!

  62. The more the merrier is the card I would choose as we just had our second baby on the 3rd of December and just had the cutest newborn/sibling pictures taken. and id choose a pic of the kids to put on it! How cool, thank you! Beautiful Christmas picture of your family.
