Holiday Cards with Tiny Prints {Giveaway}

This post is part of Tiny Prints holiday cards blogger campaign. 

I love holiday cards and now that there are so many kids in my life and friends I don’t see enough I love them even more. Nothing makes me smile more in December than  seeing all the different photo cards from friends and family filled with faces I don’t see nearly enough. Despite the perils of family photos  and the trying to find the perfect outfit and pose planning, out our yearly cards is my favorite thing. Last year we did a tri fold using this:

Each kid held a letter for their individual picture, well except the baby, she was terrified of the Christmas lights! This year I am thinking of doing something like this:



With the kids running amok, being blurs. It’s kind of what life feels like right now. My calendar says it’s Thanksgiving but my head is still back on October 1. Thankfully Tiny Prints has always made me look way more put together than I am. We have ordered Holiday Cards, Birth Announcements, Business Cards and Invites from them and they are always great looking high quality cards. This year they introduced the new Premium Double Thick Matte Paper to make their cards even nicer.

Now to try to choose a style with so many awesome cards! My husband is a little more classic:



I'm a little more fun and I love the Vintage line, like this one:


or this one:


Something like this might be really fun, and I already have some photo shoot ideas going through my head:

I'm all about classic and traditional - I want my cards to say Merry CHRISTMAS and have some saying or verse about the real meaning of Christmas, but I also love a fun/festive design.

Jen said...

I almost always send classic and traditional. Mostly because I am always running late getting them so I scramble for a quick pic and go.

Toni said...

Last year, we did a card that had a picture of us doing something each month of the year. We did a LOT that year so we easily had enough impressive pictures :) I would like to do that again because everyone seemed to like the small "timeline" of our lives. :) Thanks!

We are planning something fun and whimsy this year. Tiny Prints has the best cards!

Katie said...

I like a little bit of both--class and traditional, but I make sure I always HAND SIGN our names. I try to add a personal note too (that's not too time-consuming). I think people appreciate a little personal touch, instead of just stuffing envelopes. We don't get that very often these days, y'know?

I am usually pretty traditional when I get my cards in the mail.

I'm all about the classic and traditional. But I have too many friends to be straight up Merry Christmas. Sometimes I do two sets of cards though ;)

Jenn [ Crippled Girl ] said...

Definitely fun & festive!

I love Christmas cards too!! I think ours is more of a fun one and I add the dreaded Christmas letter with it. However, my Christmas letter is usually a poem set to a Christmas song. Certifiable, I know. I have nothing ready this year, it's still October, right?

Unknown said...

I typically send a holiday card with a little whimsy and fun(ny) as that is what our life is with little kiddies. If it wasn't full of whimsy and fun - we'd all be too tired to move :)

Love those vintage cards!

Tara Burghart said...

On Christmas cards, I tend to go more classic and traditional .. for birthday invites for my daughter, I'm a bit more flashy! Thanks for a great (and timely) giveaway!

Colleen Pierre said...

I tend to go more traditional but with a modern design. I've created my own cards for the last 3 years but love the designs at Tiny Prints. Thanks for the chance!

jdkampa said...

I tend to lean toward more traditional. But this year I'm looking for something that is along the earthy/nature line because we're using a picture from our family vacation to Yellowstone.

Adrienne said...

I do love Christmas cards! I think the last one is my favorite...probably cause it has a "scrapbooked" look to it!

Heather EO said...

I love silly cards, that are still CUTE, of course :)

Julie said...

fun and festive :)

I like fun and festive cards

Whitney Smith said...

Mine have always been classic and traditional looking, but I would love to try something fun/festive one year. I absolutely love the pic above with the parents tied up in Christmas lights.

jennafish said...

we love classic and traditional to celebrate the spirit of the season. We also like to include pictures that highlight or past year. thanks for the opportunity!

Keely said...

I try to send fun ones so that family far away can get a glimpse of what we're really like on a day to day basis. I also save them every year - not sure what I'll do with them - but I hope to make something with them like a holiday card scrapbook of us as we grew as a family.

We almost always do a photo card and have done both traditional and fun-- haven't decided what we will do this year. Once we have picture we will decide,
