best of the nest | minted holiday card reveal

A few weeks ago I shared that I've had the privilege of working with Minted this holiday season to design our Christmas cards and I revealed my Top 5 favorite holiday card designs in addition to the one we went with. Today I'm so excited to finally reveal our cards!

In my first post I talked about one of the reasons I love Minted so much is their support of independent artists, which leads to the widest selection of unique and creatively designed cards for all events, occasions and styles. TODAY ONLY for Cyber Monday, you can save 20% off your holiday card purchase using the code CM2015 at checkout! 

For our Christmas cards, I chose the Triple Monochrome design. I love being able to incorporate photos into our cards and something that initially caught my eye with this design was the ability to have three photos on the front, since I always have such a hard time deciding my favorites! I also loved the division of the top and bottom so I could have one in black and white and two in color. Minted also offers the ability to have a single photo or photo collage printed on the back of your cards, so I was excited to integrate one more photo of Olivia and Dustin -- those two are the very best of friends. 

I chose a wavy border to add some elegance and always love including our girls' middle names on cards. You can shop the design I chose here and find all other holiday card designs here. You'll have options to customize your wording, border, backing, envelopes and more! I love love love the brown Kraft envelopes with this card (and all Christmas cards, really!) because there is just something so childlike and special about Kraft paper. Maybe it's the song about brown paper packages tied up with string...or just that it's rustic and different than standard white. Either way, I just love the overall look of these, how personal we made them and the extra touches.

And if you create your holiday cards this year with Minted, I'd love to see them! Don't forget to use the code CM2015 at checkout and be sure to tag me on instagram @blessednestblog with your final product! Shop all holiday cards here. Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!! XO
