Christmas Card Help

It might be a little weird that I’m posting about Christmas cards in October, but this little preggo’s gotta plan. With Baby O.’s due date being December 16, this year’s Christmas card needs to be a little inventive… and sent out in November. Heck, my Christmas shopping is getting done this month!

Here’s last year’s card!
Haha, kidding.
It was actually this:
How things change in one year!

So far, the idea is that this year we would use a maternity picture with Greg and I and have a theme of Baby O. being the present. I’ve gotta get creative and use some cute wording.

This year, I’m going to use TinyPrints for our Christmas cards. They have a really adorable selection of Christmas/Holiday cards… so many beautiful designs! They also have address labels and party invitations. How fun!

So, let’s take a look at what I’ve picked out so far. I need your help deciding! What is your favorite? Keep in mind, a maternity picture will be on the front!

Option #1
via
So the thought behind this one is I would use some cute wording on the back like “Coming this December, our greatest gift of all!”
Option #2
via
Now how cute would this be with a maternity pic? I would probably put something on the back like “‘Tis the Season for bundles of joy! Wishing your family the gifts of the season.”
Option #3
via
Again, I’d have to think of some cute wording for the back about “bundles of joy.”
Option #4
via
Would this be too…. overkill? Remember… maternity pic.
Option #5
via
Once again, some kind of wording with “bundle of joy.”
So, which one’s your favorite? I’m feeling kind of stumped.
Also, if you have any cute ideas for the wording/back of the card, I am all about your input!
 
Disclosure: For writing this post, Tiny Prints is offering me 50 Christmas cards.

    I’m digging #3 with the maternity pic! You can also have a pic of the two of you holding an ultrasound pic… Or a maternity pic + an ultrasound pic (for a card that has 2 photos).

    I like the “Bundles of Joy” wording! Super cute and not overkill. I love the 5th design, then again I like the grunge look in the lettering! So many choices though. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them!

    I pick #1 or #4 🙂 Both are adorable!! Especially with your cute lil belly!!

    One of my coworkers had a baby right before she printed her Christmas cards last year and she had it read “Our Christmas Wish Come True”. I don’t know if you can work that in but it was really cute. 🙂

    I like 1, 3, and 5.

    I like the idea of making it funny! Have you got the shots done yet? maybe for the Christmas photo get a t-shirt with a present on the bump or something? Just a thought!

    I think you should do something a little off-humor. Maybe tie a bow around your belly and say do not open until after Christmas?
