2012 Holiday Cards
"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."

"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium.
I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."

"I took advantage of the 10 free holiday card offer, and "only" had to pay the almost $7 shipping, which I felt was rather high. The card itself was a beautiful design. However I was a little disappointed with the quality of the print of the picture. The black jacket my husband was wearing appeared purple-ish, seeming to indicate to me that Shutterfly's printing color was running low. If I had paid $.80+ and per card and gotten all my Christmas cards here, I would have been very unhappy, as the picture I submitted was fine, and the original photo showed the jacket black. I will continue to order through Shutterfly, however, since they usually do quality work."

These cards were a success
"These cards were a hit with everyone this year. Loved all of the pictures I put on the card - both sides. Writing is small and needs to be enlarged. Love the bright colors. Very happy with this purchase"

Love the Card, Except the Signature
"The card is beautiful. The picture quality is perfect and the text is nice. However, the signature is tiny and didn't allow me to make it multilined which frustrated me a bit. Not a big deal but please consider a multiline signature for this in the future."
Christmas at the Cottage
Twinkling lights, boughs of garland and singing Santa Clauses are not everyone’s idea of an ideal holiday season. For some, a quainter approach to holiday décor captures better the warmth and togetherness of the Yuletide season. From rustic holiday cards to ribbon-laced pine cones, here are some ideas to inspire the pastoral side of your holiday decorating scheme.
Less Is More
The key to a rustic holiday theme is downplaying your décor. Instead of relying on bright lights and sparkling tinsel, use muted, earthy tones to make subtle features pop. Wooden objects, such as decorative pine cones and woven branch wreaths, add a tasteful, yet textural design palette, especially when contrasted with deep reds, silvers and golds.
To add a twinkle to your décor, use candles instead of Christmas lights to create a soft shimmer, like stars glistening in the country sky. Natural firelight adds a quiet ambience to any room, opening a warm, inviting space for the entire family.
Decorating for the Senses
Though much of your holiday décor is based on how it looks, adding fragrance takes your theme to a whole other level. Scented candles, fresh pine and a wood-burning fire bring the true scent of the country into your living room. There is nothing like the scent of fresh cinnamon and the sound of a crackling fire to transport your home to a more idyllic place for the holidays.
Sharing the Holiday Spirit With Others
Finally, tie your entire décor theme together with rustic holiday cards that evoke the style and simplicity of country living. From party invitations to family portraits, share the values of togetherness and simplicity with your friends and family.
Stay up to date with the latest design trends when creating your rustic holiday experience. New inspiration is found every day, and even the simplest objects, like a stick or a pine cone, can become a true piece of pastoral beauty in your home.
