I feature my own work on here all the time, but there are many other designers’ whose work I truly admire. Today, I wanted to share some inspiration and a few of my favorite holiday cards and gifts from Minted and the talented designers behind these fabulous products.
NEW Foil Pressed Holiday Cards
I am completely in love with anything shiny and metallic and Minted’s new foil-pressed holiday cards are gorgeous! The entire collection looks beautiful, and I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites, but you can shop the entire collection here.
I love this awesome design, Modern Pine, by Oscar & Emma. Perfect for those who might want to skip the family photo on their cards this year. Loosely drawn branches and berries and a bright fuchsia and chartreuse color palette with real silver foil – this one is begging to be my Christmas card!
This exquisite multiphoto holiday card, was created by designer, Kelli Hall. The gold foil design elements in Dazzling Glitter are super chic and the clean layout and white space allow your photos to shine.
If you’re looking for a full-bleed photo design to really show off a stunning photo, I adore All Aglow by Olivia Kanaley. Her hand painted Merry is beautifully simple but still makes such an impact in glitzy gold foil.
Alethea and Ruth does bold, quirky hand lettering just right. I love the whimsical vibe in Merry Typography, and the lettering looks soooo lovely in foil. Love the mint colorway too.
NEW Personalizable Wrapping Paper
Minted has lots of great new products and options to satisfy holiday shoppers this year and I’m excited about their new customizable gift wrap! With lots of photo and non-photo designs to choose from, you can make your gift-giving extra special this season. They have cute designs for the kiddos and more sophisticated personalizable designs for the grown-up gift exchanges too. Also for available for sale – matching gift tags and stickers!
NEW Holiday Ornament Cards
The new Minted ornament cards come in 3 different die-cut shapes with a luxe linen ribbon. I love that these cards can double as a keepsake and even be hung on the Christmas tree.
Honestly , I could go on and on about all the fab products on Minted and the great work from my fellow designers. Not only does Minted have a fantastic selection of holiday cards, but they also have lots of great gifts (ie. art prints, calendars, notebooks, personal stationery) and party decor for your holiday soirees. Head over to Minted now and get your shop on. Happy Holidays!!
If you haven’t done so already, NOW is the time to buy your Holiday, Christmas and New Years cards! The other day I posted a feature on my 2013 holiday collection, exclusively available at Minted.com. Feel free to take another look at my Minted designs. However, if you can’t find a design you like on Minted, I have many more holiday cards and party invitations for sale on Zazzle. Check out just a few of the options below and get your holiday shopping underway.
Hooray!! My Sweet Embrace save the date design has now been shared and repinned on Pinterest over a 1000 times! I am thrilled this design has spread so far and so fast. Its success has certainly exceeded my expectations.
For those who arrived at his blog post because you’re looking to purchase this design, it is now exclusively available for sale at Minted.com!
I think this design has been successful thus far because it pairs sophisticated, clean type with a beautiful, professionally photographed engagement pic. If you’re recently engaged and planning a photoshoot, I have a few tips if you hope to use this design for your Save the Date cards.
- Go for great natural light. Late afternoon or sunset can result in some beautiful pics.
- Make sure to get some nice vertical shots of you and your honey standing close together, holding hands, sharing a kiss or ‘sweet embrace’. Look in love!
- Full, head-to-toe body shots work best, so the photo can be cropped, scaled or repositioned around the text to achieve a flattering layout.
- This design looks great with white text, so what you wear matters. A little color or similar tonal qualities in your clothing can help.
- You probably don’t want the environment in the background of your photo to be too busy, but you still want some color in your surroundings so the text in this design is legible.
- Get creative!
For a little extra inspiration, here are some of examples of photos that can work with this design:
FYI: You might notice in few of these examples that there is a pink tint overlay or outer glow around the edges of the photo. These filters can add a pretty effect to your photo and the overall design. However, what looks best totally depends on your photo, so you’ll be able to purchase this design with or without any tint/filter.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! After the turkey feast and pumpkin pie, the holiday shopping season will officially kick into high gear!

I’ve been hard at work designing wedding invitations for the past couple weeks. I entered 2 of Minted’s big wedding invitation design competitions. (The Fall in Love challenge is for digitally printed and foil-pressed invitations and the Make an Impression challenge is letterpress!) I’m really hoping to make a splash in the wedding market this year, so your support (and especially your votes ), would be greatly appreciated.
I have a variety of entries, including gold foil and letterpress designs, some formal and classy, others fresh and modern. So, voting is open, now until December 9th, and my designs can be found at the links below or on the challenge pages here and here (just look for Hooray Creative). Please be awesome, and vote on some of the other designers’ entries as well right here . Thank you sooooo much for taking the time to look at my work!

And then, there’s Letterpress (a technique of relief printing using a printing press). Minted’s beautiful letterpress invitations are printed with 1, 2 or 3 ink colors on luxurious cotton paper. The photo below includes designs from Minted’s existing Letterpress collection. You can see the texture of the paper and impression of the printing, right? Gorgeous! I want to be in this collection.
So, without further ado, here are my Letterpress entries! FYI: I was allowed to enter the same design into both Minted challenges, as long as they were suitable for both digital and letterpress printing techniques – so a few of these will be familiar.
