Christmas Card Outtakes | Minted Favorites

This year I am actually on the ball with my Christmas Cards.  They are ordered and en route and should hopefully be in the mail next week!  This year I decided to do a picture of all 4 of us.  I normally just do the kids because it is damn hard to get everyone smiling and looking at the camera.  I decided to enlist my friend and photography Brook Bertschy to snap some pictures to ensure we were all looking good- she does wonderful family photos if you need them!   
I thought I would share a few of the outtakes we didn't use for our card.  There were so many fabulous photos- after my cards arrive I will share the final product!

I went total cheeseball and had us all dress in coordinating Christmas colors.  Normally I am so against the matchy stuff but I guess I was feeling the Christmas vibe this year. Fa la la la la:)

I love to use Minted for our holiday cards.  They are fast and the quality is amazing.  The cards are super thick which I think makes for a more elegant card and I just love the foil pressed cards.  If you have yet to order cards you must check out the Minted site.   There are so many amazing designs, I spent over an hour browsing and picking our card out.   I tried to narrow down my favorites for ya'll to see.
You can shop all the Foil Printed Cards Here.
If you have not ordered cards you can use the code DBDD10FS to save 10% on your order and get free shipping!  If you spend more than $150 you can use code JOY15 to get 15% off your order but that does not include free shipping.

This one is precious if you just had a baby and a great way to tie in a birth annoucement and Christmas card.

This one is great if you want to use more than one picture

and if you don't feel like doing a picture card these are beautiful non-photo cards.

Added bonus they do Custom printed addressing for your envelopes!

I love the coordinating outfits, and they're not too matchy matchy so they look totally subtle! Your kiddos are too cute!
