I have found the answer to simplifying the Christmas Card.  This year I paired up with Minted to select a card.  The selection has been been the hardest part. There are too many choices that are chic.  I wavered between a Christmas Instagram inspired minibook and a letterpress option.  

They truly have options to suit every single price point and desire.

 I have done a simple Peace * Love * Joy message with a full bleed card for years. This year I wanted to switch it up.

The uploading to the addressing is a whiz.

Cutting out this step will speed up the process immensly. 

Here was my option 1:

I love this because it reminds me of Instagram.

Option 2:

Letterpress.  I am Letterpress crazy.  It has such a nice feel and heavy weight to it. I wanted to also zing it up with color. I chose the hot pink for an unexpected punch!
