Holiday Card Giveaway

Image taken from Shutterfly
Last year, Shutterfly had a great promotion on holiday cards so I took advantage of it and ordered some for Christmas. I used to make all of my own cards and really enjoyed the process. Plus, it feels great to give something handmade. With Shutterfly, you get to be involved in the design of your own cards so the feel good factor is still there, but its a lot more affordable and takes A LOT less time to order them than to make them yourself. There are people who will say it's cheaper to make your own cards from scratch, but I've been there and know the truth. lol

Shutterfly has hundreds of card styles available and each design appears to be fully customizable. You can choose the card size, the fold, the colors. They even do photo cards, which is really neat.

For our Christmas cards this year I plan to order a 5x5 (I LOVE square cards, always have!) folded photo card with a black and white photo of my girls. And, since I'm on a major turquoise kick, there will definitely be some of that colour in the design! Probably with a little pop of red.

Although all of the opinions expressed in this post are purely my own, I have been compensated with some free cards!


Shutterfly is giving away 25 cards to 3 lucky readers! Includes free shipping to the USA or Canada!
