One tradition I always grew up with was my mom was religious about sending out Christmas cards every year. I loved getting holiday cards in the mail from friends and family while growing up because my mom would tape all of them to the back of the front door. I loved sitting there looking at all of the friendships we made and people I loved.
I really wanted to pass on this little tradition with my family because I believe it’s so important to stay in touch with people you care about who live far and near. During the holiday season it gets so crazy busy that a lot of times I end up waiting to the last minute to do Christmas cards and then end up not doing them. I really wanted to send out a holiday card for 2014 because we have some exciting news. We’re expecting our second baby!
Shutterfly contacted me and asked me to pick out and customize my holiday card of my choice, I was thrilled because what a fun way to announce to everyone that we’re expecting. Last year I chose something something glittery, gold, and glamorous. This year I wanted to go something more traditional and whimsical.
This year I decided to go with the Wintering Wonders Christmas Card this year. It was a hard decision because there were so many I liked but I really loved the whimsy and more traditional look of this card. I personalized the card by doing the Pearl Shimmer card stock and in the ticket shape. I love how they turned out.
On the back there’s room for you to put another picture on and text. There’s dozens of backgrounds you can choose from and I went with the green and gold dot background.
Here’s the fun announcement on the card. We’re so excited to be expecting in spring 2015.
