About Christy: I am married and have two young boys, ages 3 and 8 mos. We are a busy family but choosing the perfect Christmas card is important to me. I like to be the first to discover fun new designs, and try to send a card that doesn’t look like everyone else’s.
Card she chose: Colorful String of Lights – Christmas Cards
Why did you choose this card?
The first instant I saw this card I knew it would be the one I would choose for my holiday cards this year. It was like nothing I had ever seen before and I knew it would ‘wow’ my friends and family. Also, getting the perfect family-of-four photo is not easy with little kids, and this card is perfect for solo shots. I think we can manage those!
Did you do anything special to personalize it?
I chose the two-photo version of this card (we also have a 3-photo version and a 4-photo version) because our two kids are the lights of our lives (okay, and because I didn’t have any other photos I liked). But this card is very flexible. Depending on how many photos you have, you can put one, two or three little messages on each of the other lights. I wanted to tie my message into the light theme, and finally settled on “hoping your holidays are merry and bright.” Hope everyone likes it! Now I just have to convince my husband to string them.
