Procrastinate Much? Send New Years Cards Instead!

By December 29, 2014

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got about 500 balls in the air at once. Dramatic? Yes, but let’s face it…the holidays can send even the most organized of SpitfireMoms into a tizzy. This year was no exception. So instead of stressing out as the christmas cards arrived at my door, I’ve opted for New Years Cards instead. And the Huffington Post agrees – giving us 3 reasons to skip the season’s greetings.

I turned to my favorite source – Minted, to find a card that would help help ring in the new year with style. Minted is the world’s premier marketplace for independent design. They source exceptional artists and designers all over the world and bring their work to consumers who appreciate great design (Um, hello…that’d be me.)

To help you out, I’ve picked my top 3 cards, with a sneak peek of our own card at the end.

1. Copper, Silver & Gold – oh my!
Like any designer, I love a good foil pressed card. This one is simple yet playful. Designer: Lana Barakat

2. New Year, Fresh Start
I liked this typography driven design with an upbeat message. Designer: GeeKink Design

3. Send a little Joie De Vivre
This design is perfect for showcasing a family photo. Especially like the type styling. Designer: B.Wise Papers

Our Family Cards
As mentioned above, I am a sucker for foil. Gold foil to be exact. So these cards by Jennifer Wick were just what I was looking for – a bit of shimmer, some playful illustrations and a wide photo well to highlight our family photo, taken by the amazingly talented Sara Hasstedt (that’s right…a SpitfireMom!)


So if you didn’t send out your holiday cards, there’s still time. Send a New Years card instead with Minted!





Minted provided a gift code in exchange for this post. As always, all opinions and styling are my own. If I didn’t genuinely like their products, you wouldn’t be seeing it on the blog!
