From Our Family to Yours

Now that our Christmas card has made it into the homes of our loved ones, I can finally share it with all of you!  The night we received family photos back from Kali, I was excitedly putting our card together!  Shutterfly always has so many beautiful options; I can never decided.  So I draft up at least three or more options and have Conor be part of the selection process.  Our recent family photos were  just a delayed newborn shoot, so while I wanted them to have a winter feel, I didn't want them to scream Christmas.  We went with neutral wardrobes in hopes of having a somewhat timeless feel.  With such a beautiful snowy backdrop, I wanted a simple template for our card this year.

I almost went with the "merrier than ever" card, since those words seemed so fitting for a year with a new baby, but instead I fell in love with this simple bow design.  Playing off the color of the bow, I matched that to back of the card as well as the envelop liner.  I love adding little extras like the envelop liner; it just makes the whole thing that much more festive.  It's nearly a little present in itself.  And of course the envelopes with your printed return address are a must; it makes getting them addressed and mailed off that much easier.  I typically like to seal them with some washi tape, but this year I found the perfect gold stickers to tie it all together.  And have you all seen the Snowy Day stamps?! Adorable!

Merry Christmas to you all!  
Thank you for all of the support and letting me share just a little bit of me with you!
