Christmas Card 2013

I'm actually semi-on top of things and took Jackson's Christmas picture today to use on our Christmas cards!  Last year I had a brand new baby and didn't get around to ordering cards until mid-December and so most people got them on or after Christmas.

The past three years I ordered them from Shutterfly...

But this year I went with Vistaprint.  Why do you ask?  Well Shutterfly doesn't have the option of making your own custom photo cards.  They have different layouts and designs to choose from, many of which I love but it just wasn't what I had in mind.  Thanks to Pinterest I had a specific very simple idea and Shutterfly just didn't have that option this time.  Sooo- I tried Vistaprint.  I have ordered from them before (business cards from when I subbed) and they had what I was looking for- A flat 5x7 Photo card in portrait orientation and that I could also print on the back.

So without further ado- here is our Christmas card for this year!!!
Here is the front

And here is the back!

I toyed with the idea of doing a folded card but decided it wasn't worth the extra money.  I'm so happy with this year's design and I cannot WAIT to get them here!  I will post again when I do get them in and let you all know what I think of them in person.

Oh and another bonus?  I got 4% cash back through E-bates!  (If you do any kind of online shopping, click here to sign up for e-bates.  It's free and there is no catch!  You get rebates and coupon codes for shopping online.)

If you do photo Christmas cards for your family link them in the comments if you want to share! :)
