Christmas Card Reveal: 2017

Some of the links below are affiliate links-thank you for using these links & supporting Southern & Style at no additional cost to you!
In Thursday's post I talked all about how I wanted to whiten my teeth for our holiday photos with our beloved photographer & sweet friend, Amy of Amy-Cole Photography & that was because I wanted to use those photos for our Christmas cards this year!

I ordered from Shutterfly this year, and I absolutely love them so, so much.
These cards are light, bright, and festive-all the things I wanted to include.
My sister, Trystan, did the calligraphy for our envelopes and y'all-I'm totally obsessed.
It's the perfect personal touch that give the envelopes a little special wow-factor when they arrive in the recipients mailbox.
 She used the envelopes provided with the cards from Shutterfly (these are oversized cards) and we chose gold for the marker to match the gold stripes in the plaid on the back of the card.
Since Forrest wasn't able to be with us the day we had our Christmas card photos made, I took the best picture I had made of him all year & snuck it in on the back-I think it gives such a fun touch (although I guess I should've added his name to the back, too 😉)
I always keep one of our Christmas cards for us each year, it's just special to hold onto one each year & see how we change over the years.
I always display our current card in our Christmas tree, which makes a fun conversation piece when we have guests.

You'll get to see my other fun tree additions when I do my full home-tour!

Do you do Christmas cards with your family? Personalized or store-bought?
I would love to know, so let's chat below!

Until next time. . .
