Christmas Card Carousel

I'm linking up with Faith today for her 6th annual Christmas Card Carousel! How fun!

I wrote a post on how to make your own holiday cards a while back, so click on over there if you want to see!

What do y'all think?
Basically, I designed them in PicMonkey and got them printed through UPrinting. I wanted a black & white photo, and loved how gorgeous the sparklers & my sparkly dress looked in B+W. On the back, I could have printed more pictures, but I always love the cards that have the year-in-review on the back. We took a LOT of trips this year (this isn't even all of them!) and did a lot of fun things, besides getting married of course. This probably took me an hour to get it all formatted and to my liking. The cards came in about a week (awesome) and I think they turned out pretty darn good, considering it was my first rodeo.

Thanks to Faith for having this link-up! I can't wait to see everyone else's cards!!

xoxo,

That is such a cute idea to put your year in review on the back of your card! Never thought of that!

Faith said...

I love this!! It's beautiful. You did such a great job! We did a card one year with the "top ten" on the back and it was so fun. I need to do that again one year. :) Love your list.

Thanks for joining in the fun!! I hope you have a very Merry CHRISTmas!!

CUTE! I love that you did a "year in review" without writing a whole letter - still more fun & personal than just the basic card, but in a short and sweet way :)

Now that it's post-Christmas I have time to catch up on this carousel :)

I am so stealing that idea of the mini year in review. It's the perfect way to share news without writing a whole letter :)

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
