One Of A Kind Christmas Cards (a peek at our family's card)

While I was not compensated for this post, it does contain affiliate links.

I wanted to try something new this year for our family's Christmas cards. When I saw Minted's Completely Custom Holiday Cards, where we could turn our child's drawing into the cover of our card, I was in!

Here is our 6-year-old Lincoln's original drawing of the three wise men. 

Be still my heart.

I simply took a picture of his drawing and uploaded it to Minted's site.

And here is Lincoln's drawing after Minted applied the gold foil!

Not only do I think the sweet drawing will bring a smile to family and friends, but I plan on keeping a card as art to display at Christmastime for years to come!

The inside of the card can fit up to nine photos and a personal message.

Do you have a little artist in your life who would love to design your Completely Custom Holiday Cards?! (They'll be so proud. :)

Or, maybe you'd like to give a framed gold foil drawing as a gift... that's an option too!

 Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. and the three kings are super happy knowing they are going to see the KING. What s fabulous card!!!!

  2. That card is the most adorable thing I've ever seen for a Christmas card !!!!! The one you kept and framed is lovely :) I'm sure some of your creativeness will come out of those boy's with you as their mom. My son who is a senior , can draw anything, has been since age 3. This post so touched my heart ..... Happy Holiday's, TT ❤️

    1. Thank you so much Tammy! That is so neat about your son...

  3. Omg! I love this idea! That is the sweetest card. Your son must feel so proud that his artwork is being celebrated in such a big way. I love how you framed it too.

    1. Thanks Kelly! ;) Yes, he is proud. He actually won a Minted "little artist" contest, so we received these cards for free! Such a blessing and a fun award for him. Have a great weekend!

  4. Aw, they (and you) will treasure that forever!

  5. This is an awesome idea. Love this. So adorable.

  6. Oh Julie! That's sooooo adorable I can hardly stand it!

  7. Oh Julie, this is the most cherished Clhrismas card ever, in fact I bet you could have printed them up and sold them...the little artist, (Lincoln) must be so happy that his mom has proudly used his art for A Christmas greeting. His art reminds me of outsider art, when an artist creates art and they don't even know how artistic they really are.

    I so want to do this, I need to see if I have some xhild art here that would be fitting for a Christmas card.
    I just hope I have the time to pull this one off.

    Tell Lincoln I would love getting one of his art pieces in the mail.

    Happy Holidays, a very Merry Christmas.


  8. Love love love the Christmas card and your gallery wall! Where did you find the beautiful white frame that you framed the card in? It is so pretty!!!
