Every holiday season, I get amazing cards in the mail from our friends and family. Custom Christmas cards with pictures of the people I know and love on them. I've never made my own - until this year. Since this is our first Christmas as a married couple, it felt like this year was the perfect year to send some!

I used Shutterfly to create my own Christmas cards featuring a photo of Eric and I from one of the trips we took this year. It felt like the perfect way for us to share a part of our year with our loved ones. We love to travel, and the picture I chose captures who we are as a team. Plus, would you look at that glitter? I'm in love. I even got the glitter patterned envelope to match my card. On the back - a small photo from our wedding day, and my new last name that I get to share with everyone I know. 

And since I'm so excited about my new last name I created custom cutting boards for us and our relatives. Seeing the letter N on there and really feeling like a part of my husbands family is so amazing. I know I'll get used to it eventually and it won't feel as special as it does right now, but this is such an exciting time for me as a newlywed, and I had to share it with our family. These will make perfect gifts and I love that we will all have matching pieces to remember this year by.

  1. Obsessed with the gold glitter and of course love those cutting boards! So pretty.

  2. Aw those Christmas cards are so beautiful! Love them.
    My husband and I will also be sharing our first Christmas as a married couple this Decemeber, so I totally understand this special time you're experiencing right now. <3

  3. So I don't understand. Did you make these cards or just order them this way with the glitter.

  4. Love your card! I remember when we first got married and I was so flipping excited to do our first Christmas card. Now every year I look forward to it. This year getting to showcase our first pregnancy and adorning it with our maternity pictures. Love that cutting board too and what a perfect little gift to give as well!

  5. Gurl this is so cute and a great idea!

  6. I feel like I'll never have my shit together enough to have christmas cards, ah well, ah well.
