Our First Married Christmas Card!

I was sooo excited to see the UPS man show up today because I knew he would be bringing our Christmas cards with him! After searching high and low on every card-selling website that I know, I ended up creating our cards on Shutterfly. I decided on Shutterfly because they met all of the items on my wish list for our Christmas cards. I wanted our cards to be: photo cards, less than $100 total (for around 40 cards), good quality and just plain CUTE! Here is what we came up with:





(sorry about the photo quality - it was hard to figure out the flash on these!)

I am SO THRILLED with how these turned out because as much as I love the design, I was SO afraid of what kind of quality the paper was going to be when they arrived. Honestly, I could not have been more impressed with them. And no, Shutterfly isn't paying me to say this - although that would be great! ha ha! I chose the "matte" option because I am personally not a fan of the photo paper cards (nothing against them, I just never end up picking them!) These are very heavyweight and come with envelopes that are equally as heavy.

I ended up ordering 40 cards and paid less than $60 including shipping. I googled
"Shutterfly coupons" and found a % off coupon and a free shipping coupon and was able to use both.

And of COURSE I will be using Preppy Bride Design calligraphy to address them ;)
