Our 2014 Christmas Card

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Today I'm super excited to share our 2014 Christmas card. Creating our Christmas cards every year is one of my favorite things to do. I actually started thinking about our cards back in October. I came across this cute design through an email from Minted, and then brainstormed the perfect set up for our pictures. It takes a lot of thought and planning to figure out how to pose 3 crazy dogs who couldn't focus if their life depended on it. But after taking about a thousand pictures, we finally got one that would work. So here it is...our 2014 Holmes Family Christmas Card.

Minted has been my go-to card source lately. I ordered last year's Christmas cards, as well as our wedding Save The Date postcards from Minted, and love their designs and their quality. Their customer service is very good as well. I was having some issues using a coupon code I received in the mail for our cards this year, and used the IM feature on the site to chat with a customer service representative. She was very helpful and friendly, and resolved my issue very quickly.

I always love to use a cute picture of the pups on the front, and then a picture of us on the back. This year I used one of our wedding pictures with a burlap banner I made that says "Just Married."

And here is a close up of the final photo. The dogs look so thrilled to be having their picture taken. And Napoleon is so funny because he is sitting so far away from the girls. He's like "I'm too good for this!"

I don't blame him considering Abby tried to sit on him earlier on in our shoot. Oh these pups...gotta love their quirky little personalities.

  1. That card is so precious!!!!!

  2. LOVE IT! Cannot even handle the cuteness of the front!!!! It's like a magazine shoot cover! :)

  3. This is SO adorable!! And I'm really impressed that you got three dogs to sit and look at the camera at the same time! Love it :)

  4. Oh my gosh, I LOVE THIS CARD!!! What a fantastic idea and I just LOVE Minted, too. I love how you always feature your pups :) Thanks for linking up!!

  5. Adorable! I cant' imagine trying to wrangle three dogs for a card! Getting two was an adventure...

  6. Oh my gosh! This is seriously SO cute!!! I love this! Thanks for linking up :)

  7. So cute! But I have no idea how you get your dogs to sit still and all look in the same direction! Unless I'm sitting with my two {and holding them down} they would never cooperate!


We love hearing from you!
