Snowflakes & Shutterfly

With another Thanksgiving under our belts, the holiday season is officially upon us. When I start to think about Christmas, even before the decorating, I think about sending holiday cards to friends and family. It’s the one time of the year I actually enjoy checking the mailbox and sending out mail myself. It’s the perfect way to give and receive some holiday cheer.

This year I’ll be sending cards from Shutterfly in the form of holiday photo cards. I always like getting these in the mail and haven’t done them myself since the year Geof and I first started dating. They’re something special and personal, which I think is nice.

I was playing around with creating a few cards on the site and they make the design process simple. That is a huge bonus considering time is limited around this time of year.

There are so many adorable designs to choose from that it’s hard to pick just one. They have something to suit everyone’s taste and budget. Here are a few of my favorites:


I’m a sucker for anything monogrammed or initialed, so this is right up my alley. I also like that you can use multiple photos as well as a personal message.


This one stood out to me for the cute, girly factor. Polka dots and pink…sold!


This is a classic and I love the damask print at the bottom.


If I had the time, I’d love to throw a holiday soiree and use a cute party invitation like this.

Which one is your favorite? Help me choose!

FTC: I was given 50 free holiday cards in exchange for this post. Bloggers head here to claim your free cards too!

That's awesome you got the cards for free. Last time I ordered I was really disappointed with them :( I ordered for my friends and they sent all three sets of cards in one box. No clue how I am going to give them to my pals as Xmas gifts without them getting messed up.
