"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.) Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere. There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card. Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card. Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."
"Just what I wanted looks great! I never need a lot of holiday cards so this was just right and they are beautiful."
"I was very pleased with my Christmas Cards and people have commented to me that they loved receiving them. The only thing I would have changed is that the message inside was printed too large, but that is the size I chose and I'm to blame for that. I wish I could have seen it better and had known it was so large."
"I love cards with different photo options! I have a large family, and I love to have cards with an individual photo of each child, plus at least one group photo. This card is easy to personalize, and has a lot of different color options too! I don’t always plan a holiday photo, so this way I can make the card look good with whatever pictures I end up using. The snowflakes are an added bonus, they’re my favorite holiday card background!"
Have you ever imagined how dreary December would be if it wasn’t the proud host of one of the most adored holidays around the world? Christmas (also known as Navidad) is a time when families and friends take time out of their busy lives to gather together and celebrate. If you’re planning to throw a Feliz Navidad party this year, here are a few tips that will help you make the occasion as festive and enjoyable as possible.
No Feliz Navidad party is complete without the pleasant aroma and taste of delicious, authentic Mexican food. Purchase or prepare traditional Mexican dishes such as ponche, bunuelos, posole and more for your party. Invite your friends and family over for dinner, then exchange gifts after your bellies are full and satisfied.
Rather than giving your guests edible party favors that provide fleeting pleasure, send them away with custom Feliz Navidad cards instead. Design your cards with a photo of yourself or your family on the front, so your friends and family members will never forget the occasion or your friendship. Not sure what type of photo to add to your card? Shutterfly has plenty of Christmas photo ideas that you are sure to love! Depending on the type of budget you are dealing with, you can also include a small customized gift with your card, such as a personalized mug for hot chocolate or a cozy custom fleece blanket to help bring warmth and comfort to long winter nights.
When midnight strikes on Christmas Eve, step outside and set off a few fireworks in remembrance and celebration of the first nativity. If you have never taken part in this Navidad tradition, you will be amazed at how breathtaking the colorful fireworks look against the cold December sky. Depending on how late your guests wish to stay, you can even culminate the celebration by taking turns trying to bust open a piñata full of candy and toys. Ending the night in such a grand way will help ensure that the occasion is remembered for many years to come.
