christmas cards

Merry Christmas from our family to yours! It was our first year sending out Christmas cards. I think having family pictures taken this year gave me the confidence I needed to go for it :) I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to stuff like this. Jeremy can tell you I designed about five different cards before coming up with this one. 

We ordered from and while I was so very happy with the way they came out, I will admit the pearl finish probably isn't best for a card like this. It's so pretty but I felt it came off looking a little pixelated. Nothing awful though. And my other lesson learned was if you're putting a border around your own design (as opposed to a predesigned layout on a printing website) be wary that they  may be cropped a little funky and not how they looked in the preview! 

All in all though, so happy! I'm looking forward to carrying on this Christmas card tradition for many years to come :)
