holiday cards

The holidays are quickly approaching and I've been trying to figure out what to do for Christmas/holiday cards this year! Being that this is my first year signing our cards as "The Peters," I want to make sure I pick something perfect as this was the biggest and best year of our lives so far! We actually did our wedding invitations & thank you notes (still working on those...) from Minted and there's a lot of cute designs that kind of go along with our gold foil and calligraphy wedding theme, so maybe I'll go with something along those lines, or a cute red & white design to stick to more of the "holiday cheer" theme.

The options are endless as there are so many adorable ones this year... so, I teamed up with Minted to help you all narrow down the choices. Below, I did a roundup of my absolute favorite card designs from their 2016 holiday card collection.


Minted's cards cost around ~$1.25/card so are a pretty great deal already, but I'm giving away 3 $100 gift cards to my readers. Enter The Urbanite Insight giveaway on Minted here between 11/15-11/22!


See more details about this cute holiday design here.

This cute card comes in a variety of options with words like "merry", "joyful", "blessings", and "cheers" in the middle box. See them all here.

I can't tell whether it's the gold foil or the cute little boy in the photo, but there's just something about this design that I LOVE!

I like how this one appeals to every faith and holiday in saying merry "everything."

Loving the font on this gem!

This gold + black & white combo is 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

Loving this card since it doubles as an ornament!

This simplicity is perfect.

Loving the rose gold and the Christmas tree backing on this one!

I really like how the note on this one is New Years focused! See this design here.

Here are a few additional pointers to keep in mind that will help making holiday card creating easy when using Minted:

1. Minted's FREE Address Assistant makes addressing holiday cards so easy.

I used this for my wedding "save the dates" too and it saved me SO MUCH TIME!

2. Minted's find it fast option is a super helpful tool to find the perfect holiday card design. Simply upload your photo, then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs. This saves a lot of time on individually clicking through and uploading photos to holiday card product pages.

3. Buying holiday cards now and personalizing them later can be a very useful option. Minted customers can take advantage of a promotional offer "now" and come back to finish personalizing with photos, text, or addresses "later", even after the promotion has expired.

Here are some promos going on right now that you won't want to miss:

  • Use code "FOIL20" which gives you 20% off all foil-pressed cards through 11/16

  • Use code "MERRY16" which gives you 15% off holiday cards $150+ and 10% off holiday cards $100+
