Christmas Countdown: The Christmas Card

There is a reason (well MANY reasons) that this is the "most wonderful time of the year." Plainly put, I love Christmas.  I am one of those people who starts thinking about it and gets excited when Target puts their Halloween costumes on clearance and makes way for Santaland in the middle of October.  I count down the days until the light 40s radio station makes the switch to holiday music and secretly (well not so secretly, I make Mr. R listen) jam out.  Everyone has those little things at they look forward to during the Christmas season.  Between now and the BIG DAY, the Reynolds Wrap-Up is going to be dedicated to the season of giving, peace, love and happiness to celebrate the coming of Christ (as well as Santa Claus...I hear Buddy the Elf knows him!).

One of the very FIRST things I start looking for (and seriously in like September) is the Reynolds Christmas Card!  Most websites have great deals on last year's design or discounts for ordering early.  Unfortuneatly you have to make alot of decisions which I am not very good at...one photo vs. multi photo, 4x8 vs. 5x7, flat vs. folded, photo paper vs. stationary paper.  This year I checked out Shutterfly, Snapfish, Minted, Tiny Prints, designing my own and then finally decided on something a little different...Etsy.


Option #1 via Shutterfly
Option #2 via Shutterfly
Option #3 via Shutterfly

via Minted (obviously NOT my children!)


This design was done by the fabulous Andrea Gerig Designs on Etsy.  She designed the card for $15 and sent it to me as a high resolution JPEG file.  I, in turn, printed to my hearts content via Snapfish as a 5x7 on photo paper.  It could also be done on cardstock.  LOVE!
