Incredible Holiday Card Selections from MINTED – $100 GIVEAWAY – #Holiday2016

One of my favorite holiday traditions each season is creating our McClelland Family holiday card. Ever since we were first married, we’ve sent out holiday cards. I remember feeling so excited that first Christmas back in 2001 being able to send out cards from “the McClellands!” It brought such a big smile to my face. Since then… well, our family has grown (quite a bit!). With 5 kids, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a fun family photo and be able to share it with all of our family and friends (you know, beyond just the walls of social media!). It’s a time to wish all of our family and friends well wishes for the upcoming holidays and bless them with tidings for a fabulous New Year ahead!

This year I wanted our holiday card to be a nautical theme. We purchased our 1st family boat this past summer, so for us… everything is anchors, ocean and Vineyard Vines! It only seemed right to take our holiday photo on the boat this year. After all, it IS the newest member of our family! ♥

I partnered with Minted this year to order our holiday cards. They have the most incredible and beautiful 2016 selections! I love 2 BIG things about Minted:

    1. There is a style for everyone

There is price point for everyone

These are 2 HUGE things because it’s important to know going in that you’re going to be able to find something for you that makes you happy and makes you price comfortable. I sat with my husband and literally poured over all the holiday 2016 selections. There’s… foil pressed cards, photo cards, letterpress cards, ornament cards, booklette cards, non-photo cards, custom cards, postcards and petite cards!!  It took us 45 minutes to decide on our final card design, there were so many we loved! What I personally love about Minted is that they partner with artists and illustrators from all over the world to bring to their customers designs that speak to their hearts and styles.

Minted’s community of independent artists and designers are located in 48 states and 43 countries. They are illustrators and textile designers, painters and packaging designers, marketers and stay-at-home moms. Some have design degrees, and others are participating in Minted competitions to learn design for the first time. They share a deep love for creative expression, personal development, risk-taking, and most importantly, paying it forward by helping each other.

I’m not kidding, we isolated about 8 designs before picking our final one! We even had to get the kids involved because it was too difficult for us to narrow down!

Here are some of our faves from Minted’s 2016 collection… I’m not sharing what we ultimately picked (yet!), it’s coming soon and I will do a big “reveal!”

The best part, you can take your card and turn it into a print, too for your wall! This is something we’re DEFINITELY doing with our cards this year. But that’s not all, on Minted you can also get personalized stationery, invitations, art for your walls, home/party decor! I’m telling you, there’s TONS you can get – right on Minted!!

Right now… at this moment… I’m all about our holiday card, but I can’t wait to order more from them after my cards are out and delivered (and off my mind!).

I’ll give you a little sneak peek at our holiday “nautical” photo shoot today… outtakes! LOL!

Now… don’t forget, ordering from Minted gives you some amazing perks for ease and convenince.


Check this out…

1) They have a FREE Address Assistant that makes addressing holiday cards so easy.

2) They have the find it fast option that is a super helpful tool to find the perfect holiday card design. Simply upload your photo, then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs (we did this). This saves a lot of time on individually clicking through and uploading photos to holiday card product pages.

3) Buying holiday cards now and personalizing them later can be a very useful option. Customers can take advantage of a promotional offer “now” and come back to finish personalizing with photos, text, or addresses “later”, even after the promotion has expired.

Believe me, the elegance is priceless over at Minted!

Check them out!

I also have a $100 CREDIT GIVEAWAY!!!

How can you enter?

Leave me a comment as to how many cards you usually order (we’re around 300!)!

I’ll choose a winner on Dec. 10th!! (still plenty of time to order!).

  1. We need around 60 or so, but I usually panic and order 100! We use Minted every year, their selection and designs are great.

  2. I usually do about 25 cards, but this year my fiancé and I will be combining our Christmas card list so I think it’s going to be about 75 this year.

  3. We send out about 50 cards. Would love to try Minted. Looks like there is so many choices to choose from. Merry Christmas!

  4. All the designs look fabulous and pictures are very sweet. I also like the address assistant option. Great review. I order around 25 cards

  5. Hiding my head in shame–I don’t send out holiday cards. I have been to Minted for various other possible purchases–just not cards.

  6. When we lived in the states I would always send beautiful Christmas cards but since we have moved overseas it is far too expensive to order them and send them out. It makes me sad! Minted makes beautiful cards for all holidays and occasions.

  7. I send out about 100-150 cards, no I don’t have that much family, I send cards to people who have no one to send them cards, veterans and some social media friends. I love sending cards.

  8. I love the designs of the cards Minted has to offer. Every year I say that I will take a family photo and send out holiday cards, but I’m always procrastinating!

  9. I send out 75 cards for myself and I send out 50 for my sister. When my younger sister became a mom, 12 years ago she blessed our family with a sweet baby girl, a December baby to boot! I remember her saying I just can’t do holiday cards this year it was too much for her to care for this new sweet baby and to worry about writing out cards. So I said don’t worry about it I’ll get it done for you. 12 years later as a gift for my sister and brother in law I still do their holiday cards they send me the pictures they want to be included and I get it done! It is my favorite gift to give because they never know what their holiday card will look like until it arrives in their mailbox!
