"I make an ornament of the Holiday card every year. My favorite ornaments. ; )"
"VERY pleased with the final product of these cards. They look great and are sturdy. I didn't like that when I went to check out it kept telling me I'm missing something with my card (a border or something similar), and would take be back to "edit", but wouldn't show me exactly what it thought I was missing. Also, I don't like that I couldn't just add 5 blank envelopes (I have my envelopes addressed) and cards for those "extra". I had to order them separate and pay separate shipping. The cards I give 5 stars to, but the website is 3 stars at best."
"Thanks for helping me with our Christmas cards! I have a lot of extended family that doesn't live close and we don't see each other very often.... I have used Shutterfly for 4 years now and get compliments on the cards every year! Thanks Shutterfly!"
"My order turned out great, I would order again"
"This card is great quality from Shutterfly."
The most festive time of the year is also the coldest time of the year, in many places. The cold weather brings with it some hazards that everyone traveling and staying home need to be aware of and plan for. As you prepare your grey Christmas cards to be stamped, sealed, labeled and delivered, we also have some tips to help you prepare for grey and stormy skies.
For those who travel during this season, that means snow tires and chains for your wheels, if necessary. You will also want to pack a blanket for each person and a battery-powered space heater. A few snacks are also a good idea, just to be on the safe side. Before setting out on a long journey, make sure your phone is fully charged and that you have a car charger to keep it going through any eventuality.
If you have a wood-burning fireplace, then you need some firewood on hand to burn. A crackling fire is not just useful to warm your home but looks festive. It makes a nice backdrop for an intimate holiday gathering or can be where you and your children roast marshmallows. Just be sure your camera is snapping pictures because these are some memories you will want to print off and share. Maybe on next year's Christmas card?
Plan to have your parties inside to avoid any cold or snowy weather. It's easy to get some personalized holiday decorations to make everything look more festive. You can go for a natural approach with greenery inspired by the season or fill your home with handmade snowflakes.
While planning ahead for the cold holiday months, don't forget your holiday cards and invitations. Rustic Christmas cards don't have to be as dark as grey, cloudy days. They can be elegant while evoking beautiful foggy, chilly nights.
