Our First Christmas: Card.

First let me say that there are a butt-load of Christmas card options out there!

With that, I narrowed down our search using the Sarah Method; Whatever is Cheapest.

Armed with my coupon codes for Snapfish and Shutterfly, I scoured each site, looking for a card the best complemented our formal wedding picture...

We found SO many cards...

But our picture was not working in ANY of them!  I really wanted my bouquet to show and not be too zoomed-in.  Also, we just wanted one picture.  The small card looked SO busy with more than 1 photo. 

And, well, our picture is formal.  And many of the cards are a bit more whimsical, which I am typically into but felt like that look wouldn't be a match.

So after much debate, we decided on a classic look...

This isn't the exact card we selected but it's very close (Snapfish doesn't offer the design anymore... I'm sure it was because it was sooooo popular :-)  ).  The green ribbon is more of a green scroll on ours.  And the year is framed with scroll work as well.

Anyhoo, I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS METHOD OF CHRISTMAS CARD GIVING!!!  It's so easy to print, stuff, address and send. 

Do you send holiday cards?  Do you go with the standard card with a note or the photo card?
