{Giveaway} minted holiday cards

The giveaway is now closed. Thanks for visiting!


Is everyone in the full swing of the holidays? I want to say I am, but in actuality I spent much of last weekend trying to finish off the new nursery, and writing thank-you notes for the baby shower. Right after I finished the last thank-you note, I realized I had to do Christmas cards – it’s going to be one long card-writing marathon for me this week!

I thought it was serendipitously appropriate then that I was contacted by minted, an online paper goods store that features designs from independent designers around the world. I’ve actually received cards from friends who use minted, and I’ve found them fresh, unique, and well made. minted offers access to some really talented artists, a wide range of products that makes them a good one-stop shop for your paper needs – from invitations to business cards to stationery to calendars, and even the ability to customize your cards: minted designers can tweak the layout of existing designs or work with you to create a completely custom design.


The existing, constantly evolving selection of designs has enough choices to intrigue my non-designer self. Now that we have a dog and another family member on the way, the photo cards are looking like an appealing option for future cards we send out. And now, here’s your chance to try out minted, maybe get some last-minute holiday cards, or make some other custom card if you have some big announcement coming up in your life – like I do!

To enter: I’m happy to offer a $50 minted credit to one lucky winner.  Simply leave a comment below on your favorite design from minted’s holiday card page. The winner will be announced next Monday Dec. 17.


In between bouts of card writing, I’m working in some holiday baking – look for a recipe post in a day or two. Teaser: think cranberries. In the meantime, don’t forget to enter the giveaway – good luck!

    I just ordered my Christmas cards, so much fun with pictures of a little baby to use! I love the White Christmas design.

    I’ll be sending out cards for my daughter’s first birthday in March, so I’ll be back on the card hunt soon enough!

    I like the card that says “be joyful”. A good message for all no matter what holiday you celebrate or where you are, a little more joy in the world would not be a bad thing. Happy Holidays!

    I really like the Merry Modern Holiday card. I live on the west coast but have family in Chicago. That card reminded me of my family in the midwest. Touches of modernity throughout the city, but that midwest warmth came through. I don’t know if any of that is what you were going for, but I liked it. Merry Christmas.

    I love the “joyful season” card. We actually used Minted for our son’s birth announcement in May. I’m sure your other readers are also eager to see your baby announcement. Congratulations and hang in there =).
