*Giveaway is now closed. Stay tuned for winner announcement*
This week marks the beginning of fall. Soon we'll be planning costumes and decorating for Halloween. I hate to say it, but the holidays will be here before we know it. Every year, I try to start my search early for the perfect Christmas cards. I'm picky with them, I admit, but I love to find just the right cards.
This year, I found some really beautiful holiday cards from Storkie Express. They have a great variety of designs specifically for Christmas and Hanukkah as well as general holiday and even New Year's cards. These holiday categories contain both photo and non-photo designs. I know many families love the photo card designs, but many of us, myself included, like the non-photo designs. Storkie has lots of options. (There are a ton of Photo Christmas Cards too, if that's your preference!) They also sell matching return address labels, envelope seals and custom postage stamps. (Yep! Real postage stamps! But we'll talk about those in a bit!)
Aren't the designs nice? I think they're really fun and festive. Whether your taste is modern or whimsical or classic, I'm sure you'll find a design to your liking. And because Storkie separates the card designs for you (into Christmas Cards, Holiday Cards, etc.), it's really simple to get exactly what you are looking for!
I was given the opportunity to choose a card design to personalize and receive for my review. I love modern cards, but I was looking for a more classic card to send to relatives this year. I have family and friends who celebrate Hanukkah and some who celebrate Christmas and I wanted a card that would be appropriate to send to everyone. I chose these beautiful, embossed cards.
The picture here online doesn't even really do the card justice. It's really a gorgeous card. The card stock is a good, substantial weight and the embossing is intricate and clear. We have a bunch of bird feeders in our backyard and we love watching the chickadees, so when I saw these cards, I knew they were perfect. I love the simple touch of the snowman's red scarf as well. So pretty.
The card I chose can only be personalized on the inside with the message, but many of the other cards offered on Storkie can be altered by color, design, etc. And Storkie makes it super easy with their iDesign web editor. It's really simple to get the exact look you like. I was especially impressed with the text help. I wanted to change the sentiment inside my cards, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to say. As soon as I clicked on the text to edit, a list appeared with a ton of suggestions. When I saw one I liked, it only took one click to replace the original text with my chosen text. The iDesign editor really made the personalization process easy and fun.
It's true with the holidays coming quickly, I have holiday cards on the brain, but Storkie also offers beautiful party invitations, wedding invitations and thank you notes. If you have any of those events coming up, be sure to check out their selection.
Storkie is giving one of my readers 1 sheet of their custom Holiday Stamps. (1 sheet contains 20 $0.44 stamps!) They can be personalized to match many of the card designs offered on Storkie or you can use one of your own holiday photos for them! Isn't that cool?! It's real U.S. Postage and you get to choose the design! I'm jealous! This is a wonderful prize!
