Minted’s highly-anticipated holiday photo card challenge is here! Every year, Minted hosts a mammoth competition in search of the best and freshest holiday photo card designs. Independent designers participate from all over the world. There are an astounding 4108 entries this year! So, yes, the stakes are high!! I submitted 31 designs this year. It was a bit of a mad dash to the finish line since I was really pressed for time, but hopefully I’ve got a winner in here somewhere. 😉 Of course, you can help improve my chances by taking a few minutes to vote on my entries! Voting is open until Tuesday, May 27th at 9am and my designs can be found at the image links below or look for Hooray Creative starting on this page, right here. You can rate designs on a scale of 1-5 and Minted sells many of the high-scoring designs.
