New Holiday Card Collection from Shutterfly + Giveaway

I can hardly believe that it's already time to start thinking about Christmas cards! As I've said before, Hubs has a pretty strict rule about giving Thanksgiving a chance ... meaning he does NOT like to see Christmas decorations, hear Christmas music, or even think about Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. Generally, I agree. 

With some things you have to plan ahead, though. And Christmas cards are one of them. :)

Since I'm the one who takes care of Christmas cards, I get to cheat a little, and I'm excited to share a little bit of my cheating with you today and show you some really great card options from Shutterfly. Here are 5 of my favorites!

 I just love the bright colors! It's a fun option if you don't want a balance between traditional and super-contemporary. (And this card has a really cute stripey design on the back!)

We don't get a lot of snow down south, so I find myself gravitating toward snowmen, snowflakes, and pretty much anything snow in my decorating. Add in the aqua color, and you know I'm sold! 

 Tri-fold designs are new for Shutterfly this year! This gives you lots of options to show off your kids, dogs (please, no!), or whatever else is special to you.

I wrapped everything with craft paper last year and just loved the clean, crisp look. This card captures everything I love best the look.

I think this one is my absolute favorite of all the designs I looked at. It's pretty simple, but then you've got the sparkly glitter borders around the photos for a little jazz.

Be sure to check out Shutterfly's new tri-fold cards (so cute!) and back of card designs (love them!).

There are lots of options to choose from (for cards and photo gifts!), depending on your design preferences. Here are a few of this year's design collections ...
  • Classic: Traditional colors, iconic illustrations, aspirational sentiments, snowflakes, monogram
  • Contemporary: trend forward colors, texture and layering, water color techniques, shine, glitter, Instagram pictures are perfect for this style
  • Whimsy: humor and nostalgia meet, fun sentiments
  • Merry and Bright: all about color and having fun
  • Religious: metallic type treatments, incorporated story ideas
  • Photo Basics: multiple colors, vertical type, family name highlights
