2013 Christmas Card

Right now Santa’s elves are delivering our Christmas card to friends and family all over! I’m a little late in the game this year but better late than never, right? This year I ordered our cards from Tiny Prints again and am so glad I did! It took me forever to pick out a design because there were so many great cards to choose from. Once I picked the card it was an equally difficult choice to decide on which photo we would use since we had so many amazing options from our photo session with Allison Kuhn!

 In typical Tiny Prints fashion, our beautiful blue box was waiting for me on my door step a few days later and I ripped right into them…



Since Tiny Prints offered me a very generous credit towards my Christmas cards I decided to splurge on matching return address labels instead of making my own and upgraded to the red envelopes.

I picked up a gold calligraphy paint pen from Michael’s for addressing my envelopes and also some festive poinsettia stamps! I absolutely love how our cards turned out this year and am super happy! 

 Each year I frame our card and add it to the counter display. I love looking back on our previous cards because they are such fun reminders of our years together. It’s hard to believe that next year baby Caroline will be in our Christmas card! I can’t wait!

    LOVE your cards (all of them!) I save them as well each year but never thought to frame them and put them out on display as added decor (and cute reminders of past years!) What a fabulous idea/tradition that I am now going to start. Thanks for sharing!

    i love the idea of framing your cards each year. I am just never on the ball to get a card out. I will have to change that whenever we have kids because Christmas cards with kids are just the best. But yours are pretty amazing!

    Picture Christmas Cards are so fun! Love all of yours and thanks for the motivation for framing them! I am upset that we didn't do one last year, which was year we were married;( I think I just got overwhelmed with all the wedding stationary and lazy by thinking of doing cards:( I may just go back and make one for a frame for the sake of a framer;)
