I was quite excited when the good folks at Minted asked if I would like to give their photo cards a try for my holiday cards this year. As much as I would love to plaster our holiday cards with photos of my three boys, all of my guys are camera shy and hated the idea. However, here is the best thing about photo cards…your photos do not have to be of people. Maybe your Blythe dolls want to be featured on your holiday cards this year? You cat, dog, goldfish? Or maybe unlike me your family wont object to photos ;) For our family I went with vintage Santa dolls. We have four of them, one to represent each person in our family, and the quirkiness fits us well.

The only hard part is choosing a design, there are so many good ones to pick from. Luckily you can upload photos and play around with colors and text before you place an order. I’m still not 100% sure which one we will go with, but I think I have it narrowed down to the one above this text, or the lower left hand corner pinkish card. I might just end up ordering half of each. Minted also has a great blog full of DIY tutorials, so check it out!
