The Perfect Christmas Card...

One of my favorite parts of Christmas would have to be the whole Christmas card process. From designing them, to ordering and receiving my shipment in the mail, to addressing them and mailing them, to receiving them in the mail from friends and family--I love it all! There is something fun to me to about picking out the perfect Christmas card that truly reflects my family for the year.

I Love Storkie Invitations

I recently found what could possibly be my new favorite card site, Storkie Express. Storkie Express is the cutest card shop that I have ever seen! They offer a huge card selection from wedding invitations, shower invites, to all of your holiday card needs.

Storkie's selection of holiday and Christmas cards does not disappoint. When you first log on you can pick from Christmas, Hanukkah, or holiday. I knew that I wanted Christmas so from there I chose photo Christmas cards. I loved the option that you don't have to use a photo if you don't want to--but I knew exactly the picture that I wanted for my card this year and I decided to go that route.

Picking which card would be the card was so hard! There are so many fantastic Christmas photo card options to choose from that I browsed and browsed until I found the card--the card that just popped out to me. Once the card was picked you can watch a clip on how to take full advantage of customizing your card so that you will be 100% satisfied. I went to editing and had a blast! I LOVE my end result:

 I also had my envelopes add my address to the back flap in the same fun pink font. They are perfect and I am thrilled with my choice to use Storkie Express. Storkie is fabulous for many reasons:

  • Their prices rock--seriously. The end product is amazing and the prices won't break the bank.
  • Shipping is fast. And we all know how hectic the holiday season is--this is a huge plus to me.
  • The cards' cardstock is of amazing quality-my cards are durable and not flimsy whatsoever.
  • Free digital proofing
  • Raised, digital and foil options are available
  • Wonderful customer service--which is an important part of any company's success

I can't believe we're talking holiday cards, Chelle! This year my holiday card gets to be a birth announcement! I've always wanted to make one of those :)

P.S. that picture of the girls melts my heart EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

I am obsessed with the perfect Christmas card too. And then I'm always pleased when the others start rolling in and mine is cuter than all of them...is that mean? I feel like some people just throw any picture on them, but my husband and I really take our time getting the perfect shot of our son.

Look at how organized you are! Your card is super cute!

I, too, spend quite a bit of time planning my Christmas cards. We don't see the out of town relatives much, and it's a nice way to keep in touch.
