It's the most wonderful time of the year! You know my second favorite holiday followed by Easter is Christmas so when it comes to getting our cards ordering and happy mail along to people we love, I jump on it before the madness of shipping and the postage hits. We used Minted for our cards again this year, making that 7 years in a row and as usual, they're just beautiful! They always have such a range of options and having just gotten our family pictures back, I picked simple and clean with a reminder of why were celebrate: Jesus.

If you're shopping your Christmas cards, use my code for an extra $10 off your order of $100+. It can be combined with the online site promotion making this is the best deal of the season! The code is AUBREYCARDS and valid November 8 - 15th, 2021. I always choose minted for the beautiful gold foil options they have, return address printing and customized addressing for me when I upload my spreadsheet. It gives me an easy button for shopping and checking them off my list.

A fun little hack to make your cards extra festive is incorporating your own scent with them using essential oils! Grab a gallon size ziplock bag and put all your Christmas cards inside. Then grab 2-3 cotton balls and add 3-5 drops on each of your favorite oil that reminds you of the holidays! I love Christmas Spirit for this but others that would be great are: pine, northern lights black spruce, orange, bergamot, balsam fir, peace & calming, vanilla, believe, idado blue spruce or clove.
You get to choose and customize the scent and then when you enclose them in their envelopes, it'll smell like Christmas cheer for the recipient. Allow them to sit in the ziplock 1-2 days before removing and sealing and sending them on their way!

Here are the designs I had at the top of my list when I browsed a few weeks ago before ordering:
