Giveaway Goodness: Minted Holiday Cards

So remember last week when I shared about how to create a gorgeous gallery wall, including my favorite picks from Minted's art marketplace? Well, my friends at Minted have followed up with a generous giveaway for you awesome readers: $350 of Minted credit towards your holiday cards! Crazy amazing, right? Check out 10 of my favorite picks from the Minted holiday collection and then enter to win via the Rafflecopter widget at the end of the post.

First, worth noting: the Minted holiday card collection offers wonderful flexibility; in most cases you can opt for a flat or foldover card (depending on how much content you want to include), choose from different colorways, and change the holiday greeting. Also, my mind is sort of blown that right now you can opt for free recipient address printing. No wrangling with mail merge -- YAY! Now, here are 10 of my favorite picks from the collection:

1. This Happiness Is... single-photo card cracks me up. I'm pretty certain "blankie," "milkie," or "chocolate" would be one of Violet's top words.

2. Break up the visual lines of the usual photo block card with this four-photo Prismatic layout. So modern and simple and cool! I am heavily leaning towards this one for our holiday cards.

3. This Merry Streamers design is bold, pretty, and so very festive.

4. Try a new approach to holiday cards (and create a keepsake for your family) with this Sparkling Be Merry ornament card.

5. The sparkly minimal aesthetic of the Modern Shimmer design gives a tasteful touch of bling, while otherwise allowing the beauty of a single family photo be the focal point.

6. The holidays or the turning of a new year call for the shimmery confetti in this cheerful Sprinkles design.

7. Want to create something more involved? This Family Recipes Holiday Booklette takes thoughtful correspondence to an entirely new level and would make for an incredible gift and keepsake.

Now, sometimes you just don't manage to capture a great holiday card photo...most of the time you're the one shooting all the pictures. BEEN THERE. No worries, there are many (close to 500!) gorgeous non-photo options.

8. This Modern Confetti design fulfills my obsession with gray and gold.

9. I love the symbolism of these Paper Cranes For Luck.

10. This Holiday Splashes design is so unusual; full of unique artistry and light.

Now, surely you're eager to order some gorgeous holiday cards, yes? Enter to win the Minted $350 gift credit giveaway!
