Tis the season! One of my favorite parts about the holidays is walking down my long driveway to the mailbox with the kids to find out what has arrived today! Receiving cards from friends and relatives is like a mini-gift for our family with each one that’s delivered. Of course getting it together each year to send my own always adds that little bit of stress, so Breezy Mama compiled a list of ideas to help you get a head start.
Bright Baroque — Aqua Photo Holiday Card
The pop-out star card above is a favorite! I instantly picture my own li’l twinklers in the photo. Even better — if you order 96 or more, the pricing gets down to $0.91 each! If that still scares you, skip the next two options for cheaper alternatives. Or…pssst… for you crafty types, consider ordering one and re-creating your own version! To order ($27.99 for 24), click here.
|Mantle Joy–Photo Holiday Card
Talk about an early stocking stuffer! This card is so adorable with a peek-a-boo photo present inside.
To order ($27.99 for 24), click here.
|Ornamental–Photo Holiday Card
If you send a lot of cards, you tend to get a lot of cards! For those lucky types who run out of room to display them, this card is great as it doubles as an ornament! Even if you don’t get a tree, this can easily hang anywhere. To order ($27.99 for 24), click here.
|All Wrapped Up Photo Card
Admittedly, this starts to get on the pricey side, BUT it comes with return address labels, too. The design really does give that unwrapping of a gift feel! To order ($64.99 for 24), click here.
|To get costs down, consider just the flat photo card either from Shutterfly, Kodak Gallery, or any other favorite photos site you use. Pear Tree offers them as well, with plenty of great designs to choose from, starting at $19.99 for 24! Click here to see what they’ve got.|
|And if you want to go ‘ol school –as in no photo — check out the hand painted card created by Designs by Lenila. Including, well, yes, the Seahorse version. To learn more, click here.|
|To make life easier and not have to hand write your address several times, check out the cost effective return address labels from Vista Print. The designs are cute and $1.99 for 140 (!!!!), you can’t go wrong! Click here to get started.|
