50 Free Holiday Cards from Shutterfly

Shutterfly is my go-to place for fun, modern designs for cards and other personalized photo items. In the past, I have ordered photo books from Shutterfly to give as gifts. Our trip to Disney was showcased in a lovely photo book and serves as a souvenir of the highlights of our trip. Another way that I love to use photo books is to chronicle the year in the lives of my twin girls. They are growing up so quickly, and a photo book can re-tell the story of a year with school, holidays, dance recitals, birthday parties, and more, all in one package.

Fried Pink Tomato posted a special deal for bloggers the other day, so I took a look at Shutterfly’s options for Christmas and holiday cards and was so impressed with the designs. Bloggers can get 50 Free Cards for blogging about their experience with Shutterfly. Find out all of the details here!

The square cards are a unique twist on the traditional card and are my favorites in the collection. I love the Merry Plaid Christmas card. Besides preppy pink and green, my favorite color in the winter is plaid!


This spring, my daughters will celebrate their First Holy Communion. Wouldn’t this make a delightful invitation for the spring celebration?


There is a special for free shipping on orders of $30 or more with the code SHIP30 right now and many designs are on sale.

Picture Perfect Tips
Now that you've found the perfect card, you're probably wondering which picture to use. There's no need to take a picture specifically for the Christmas card. I love to use gorgeous pictures from other celebrations during the year. Beach pictures are at the top of my list.

Black and white or sepia tone pictures also work really well with Holiday cards, especially cards that have a pattern or decorative border. Wearing light colored tops (even a plain white t-shirt will do) against a light background will really highlight your little darlings' faces and look fantastic in the card.

Personality! Choose a picture that captures the personality of your children. A great smile or even a precious pout will make a memorable card.

Happy card shopping!

xoxo
