This post was compensated by minted, one of my favorite stops online for paper products long before we partnered up.
This is our holiday card from last year. I'm really particular about my paper products and I went with minted after searching high and low for design and quality that I like. I hand made (yes, handmade) my Christmas cards for years, even after I started having babies, but last year decided that I couldn't handle that task anymore. Minted provided the same kind of idea I wanted without the hand cramps.
This year I've partnered up with minted for a giveaway for the fabulous HH readers who still believe in the beauty of holiday cards. They've unveiled some new features this year that I just love.
The foil press cards are gorgeous. (That's what I went with for our cards this year, but there won't be a reveal here until I've mailed the suckers out.) The design I used last year is also available in the foil press, if you're curious.
I also heavily debated something super cute like this, with movable elements on the card (movable meaning you choose where they fall on the card, not that they start dancing magically upon opening or anything). You could chose little designs or their names or something. This sort of has the trendy Instagram feel to it.
HH will be giving away one $150 gift card to minted! Just in time to knock these babies out and have them in mailboxes before the holidays. You have until Friday night, November 22 at 11:59pm EST to enter. You must leave a comment on this post telling me something you love about holiday cards. You can earn an additional entry in the giveaway by "liking" minted's facebook page and another by "liking" the Hollywood Housewife facebook page. If you already like the pages on FB, just click the button for an automatic entry. Good luck!
