Christmas Cards/Minted Giveaway

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

If you've been reading 3 peanuts for a while, you know I love Christmas Cards. In fact, my good friend Shana and I have an ongoing joke about how early our cards are done each year (I win every year BTW). And we text one another all year long joking about our cards.

I have used a few different companies over the 17 years we've done family cards but Minted remains one my favorite.  They offer fabulous designs (both modern and classic) and the quality is outstanding.  Minted has hosted a giveaway on 3 peanuts for a few years now and I would love for you to have the chance to win this year. This year Minted is offering my readers a chance to win a $250 credit.  Thank you Minted!!!!  You can enter the giveaway here.

I have picked our cards courtesy of Minted but I want to keep them a surprise.  So, instead I created some cards with old photos just to show you some of the awesome styles Minted has this holiday season. I had so much fun plugging old photos into their great designs. I might have gotten carried away but I wanted to show several of their great selections this year.


Love this one!  



I thought this one has a touch of whimsy especially if you have young kids.


I love the ornament shaped cards and use them sometimes.




This is simple and classic.



I really love this one too!




Don't forget to enter the giveaway.

You'll have to wait until December to see our card this year but I am really excited about it.

  1. Those are all so beautiful! I love Christmas cards, too, and look forward to them every year. Last year was the first year ever that we didn't a card. I was so busy with the kids, graduate school courses, and taking care of my mom through cancer treatments (for two different cancers...back to back). She finished treatment and was doing least we all thought so. Two weeks later, it was a different story and she passed away the day after Christmas. Receiving the annual photo cards from us (of her only grandchildren) was a highlight of the season for her. I just signed up for the giveaway. Winning would be a nice way to jump start my enthusiasm about getting cards done this year!

  2. Thank you for hosting! I have had my Christmas card in the Minted shopping cart for weeks now...hope I win this. :)
