CardsDirect: Review & Giveaway

*Giveaway is over. Stay tuned for winner announcement.*
November is here! It's time to start thinking about the holidays and that means choosing your holiday cards! It takes me a long time to decide and settle on a design for my Christmas cards each year. It's helpful to have lots of choices. CardsDirect gives you plenty of choices! They offer a complete card line of 1100+ designs! Whether you are looking for Holiday Cards, Christmas Cards or Business Greeting Cards, you will find a ton of options with CardsDirect.



 These are really pretty cards! There are modern and classic designs so you're sure to find something you like. They also have a great selection of other cards such as moving announcements or invitations to meet your needs.

I ordered the Winter Wonderland Spectacular cards. I loved the whimsical design of them and the cards were bright and cheery. I also loved that the design was on the inside of the card as well. I thought it was a really nice detail.

I ended up ordering my cards without personalizing them because I like to write my notes and sign the cards by hand. I played around with CardsDirect's editing program to test it out, though, and really found it to be very easy. I also liked that there were many fonts to choose from. You could really personalize it to your exact liking. They also give you the option to personalize the back of your envelopes with your return address, which I thought was a nice touch.

My cards arrived safely packaged about a week later. They were just as bright and vibrant as the website showed. They're adorable cards and I'm excited to send them to friends and family this year!

*Giveaway*

We just had a baby boy and are planning on baptizing him when he turns three months in January. We would love to send out the invitations using the Pale Blue Baptism card.

WOW! What a great giveaway! I would LOVE to get the Sparkling Snowflake Greetings card for the holidays. Our family and friends would love them.

My daughter is turning six in January and she is dying to have a princess themed birthday party. With so many great card designs to choose from, it is so hard to make a decision. Going with the princess theme, I would love to get her the Pretty Princess Invitations for her party
