2010 Holiday Card

2010 Holiday Card from Paper Culture

It has been chaotic around here the past few months.  With Angry Husband’s and my schedules, we just couldn’t find time to get together for a family picture.  I then decided that I was going to take some of my old pictures, or take some new pictures of Angry Kid for our Holiday cards.  And then Angry Kid had his accident at school, and had eight stitches put in, right on his forehead.  As the phrase goes, “when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.” Well, I said what the heck, and took some photographs of Angry Kid, a few days after he had the stitches in.

And I was totally stumped on the wording for the card, after I organized the pictures too.  But after polling a few friends, the wording, “Wishing You Peace & Happiness This Holiday Season! From Our Craziness To Yours, The Angry Family.”  Ok, I have to admit, I think Mique gave me the wording from one of her old Holiday cards.

I ordered our cards through Paper Culture.  I first learned about Paper Culture when I attended Creative Alliance in October.  A representative came and educated us about the company.  I love the foundation of the company.  Their cards are beautiful, plus they are printed on 100% post consumer recycled material, along with the packaging.  Oh, and my favorite part, they corners on the cards are rounded.  I love rounded corners.  I even have rounded corners on my business cards.

If you want extra help with your photographs or formatting, Paper Culture will assist you with the design, for free. They will also address and mail your cards for free.  You just need to pay the postage for the cards.  I think that is great for really busy people, or people like me whom are slackers!

Paper Culture is so very concerned about the environment that along with using recycle material, for every order placed, they plant a tree in your name. Also, If you enter the code CA10 at check out 20% will go directly to the Somaly Mam Foundation to help end human trafficking and slavery worldwide.

Disclosure: I was provided a discount by Paper Culture.  I love their cards.  When I opened the box of cards, it was like receiving a very special present.  I can’t wait for everyone to receive their cards from us.

LOVE your card and thanks so much for the info on Paper Culture. Adore their website and have bookmarked them for next year. I'm impressed by their business practices, and now that everyone and their brother uses Tiny Prints, I'm looking for something different!

shoot - I'd say I was going to steal the wording as well... but let's be honest - if I ever buckle down and actually send cards there'd be widespread fainting and heart attacks amongst our family and friends... I would have to make sure we were named in wills before I let that happen.
