We are ahead of schedule this year and my Christmas cards are here! Signed and sealed! Just waiting to be delivered. This year we were so happy to be invited to a personal session with the fabulous Lauren from Lauren Beglin Photography here in Phoenix. A true gem and a master behind the camera. She got a ton of candid shots of us and of course I used them on our Christmas cards!
A great photographer is such a blessing and she definitely knows how to make families relaxed and get personalities to shine.
For this years cards I wanted to showcase a TON of pictures for our family and friends. I’m actually not on Facebook at the moment,(I just felt like I needed a break), so most of these pictures will be new to everyone! Which is exciting right? Just like years in the past. Shutterfly has a few options to choose from when it comes to a cards so I was excited to look around!
New GateFold Cards
The Gate Fold cards are new this year and are the perfect way to wish everyone you know a Merry Christmas. I love the simplicity of it and the use of space!
Try out this style here!
Tri Fold Cards
I ultimately decided on the tri-fold style because I could personalize it a bit more! We ended up wearing hunter green in our photos so that’s the color I decided to highlight with our cards too!

I also slipped in a cute plaid liner into the envelopes for a nice surprise. I love all the details they have to offer!
I also ended up getting 10 different cards for other acquaintances! This is a great idea if your sending a card to someone you may have just met, teachers, or if your sending it into dental or doctor offices! I loved the simplicity and classiness of the script so much. I also got it stamped in a gorgeous copper color that shimmers in the light.
To make it bit more personal I also changed the shape and added a coordinating insert to the envelope with some extra love on the front! You can do the same as well and even choose from a few more like scalloped or rounded like the one above.
Shutterfly can also address AND send out your cards for you! One year when I’m a bit more organize I will totally do this! haa!
