Christmas Cards~ For Free!

I am one of the few people I know who mail out Christmas cards each year. After having a child, I found it even more important to and special to share a little about our year with our friends and family. I have typically found it less expensive to throw a 3x5 into a cheap card with a short letter than to buy a fancy photo card. But then you have to actually sign each card. Not that big of a deal, but it does sort of start to feel insincere writing the same well wishes in each.

Enter the Shutterfly photocard. And getting 50 for free!
Shove 'em into the envelope and slap a stamp on those babies and you're set!

I found their small, but very nice selection of 'religious' cards and saw a few that are on the top of my list.

love that scripture, I can hear Handel's Messiah playing in my mind

Cute and trendy with the non traditional colors, and I like that you can use more than one photo, total bonus!

Every good gift most certainly does come from the Father!

Do you send out Christmas cards? How do you decide who makes the cut?


  1. Thanks for the tip! I'm going to have to try this out, too!
    Meanwhile, I was curious what you would charge to make a t-shirt quilt. I keep thinking I will learn how to quilt, but I'm not sure I want the shirts to continue to pile up while I wait. :P Feel free to email me at tiffanydavisnorris at yahoo.

  2. I'm still a card-sender! I love getting Christmas cards (and especially ones with photos) in the mail, and it's also just a nice little gesture for those you're not able to send gifts to. I'm going with this year for mine--I had Amelia's birth announcements printed there and I really loved how they turned out. They're definitely not free, but I got a discount and I'll actually be trying out a postcard format this year--so no envelope stuffing and cheaper postage, too! I was a little iffy about whether a postcard would seem too casual, but then I figured it's better than no card (which most people do)! I can't wait to see yours this year! (I loved the collage photo you did a couple years ago, and I still have it of course!)
