Minted - Holiday Cards Giveaway- Over $100 Value!

Most of my holiday giveaways won't start until after Halloween, but I had to get this one in now. If you are like me, you are already booking your Christmas photo shoot this month. (If you don't book ASAP all the good photographers will be full!) I wanted to make sure you got this fabulous prize pack in plenty of time. 

(Scroll to the bottom of this post for some of my photographer recommendations.)

I am a bit of a stationary guru. I really really love stationary. I have the worlds worst handwriting, but I still love to send snail mail. And the very best stationary?


I can honestly say I have tried out almost every major card company out there. Last year I ordered Christmas cards from three different companies. I wanted to see the difference. Minted is light years beyond anyone out there. First of all, their paper is gorgeous. Incredible quality and feel. You can upgrade to pearlescent paper or even recycled. The ink is crisp and rich. Second, the designs are darling. Always the most updated looks, because it is a community design team. They take designs from upcoming artists, let fans vote, and they sell the most popular. So you alway know that your design is a winner.


And the best part? A designer personally makes sure the card is just how you want it, and even sends you a digital proof! No way to goof that up.

Some of my favorites from this year.....








Rustic frame (almost all the photo cards have a non-photo version)













I am sooo tempted by the varsity holiday card. Yellow!!! Hard to find this color for Christmas time.
Yellow not your thing, no big, you can pick from several colors for each different card.


How about red? or blue or green?

Pick the color that best matches your photo.



And then you have all the backers for your card to choose from.


Or if you wanted it to be a folded card, you can design your interior.


Slip in envelope liner, so very posh.


And don't forget the skinny wrap address labels. Not only do they add that extra something, they keep your card protected. 


Want something totally over the top this year? Try the Minibooks



Last year I ordered some holiday nostalgia minibooks and they turned out amazing. 


Like a little gift. These would be great to order for family members to hang on their tree every year.

Pretty much I'm obsessed with Minted. Can you tell? 
As soon as you order from them, you will be too.

One natalie's sentiments reader will be receiving 50 holiday flat cards along with backers and skinny wrap address labels. 
Oh yeah! 

Everyone gets 15% off when you enter EARLYBIRD15 by Oct 17th!
To enter:

Head over to Minted and then come back here and let me know what holiday card you would choose if you won.

For additional entries, let me know in a separate comment if:
I'll announce the winner on October 25th. Good luck!
US addresses only

I think I'd have to do a year in review card...anything to not have to write a christmas letter!

I won last year! My cards were so chic and I got a ton of compliments on them. I would love to win again, but it doesn't seem quite fair. There are so many great cards to choose from, and the quality is very luxe.

Oh wow, I LOVE Minted. They had a sample invite in Real Simple (an actual sample so you could feel the paper) and it was totally luxurious. I'd get the Simple Charm Christmas Photo Cards... but those mini photo books are amazing, too!

Your Christmas cards last year were AMAZING! I'm sure the cute family on the pages had something to do with it but the print quality was also awesome. I love those minibooks... the winter berries print would totally match the portrait outfits I have picked out this year. :-)
