Shutterfly Christmas Cards

Last Saturday we finally had our official Christmas 2011 photos taken so the quest for the perfectChristmas cards continues. There are so many fantastic options to choose from, I thought I had made my decision but now I’m not so sure.

Will you help me decide?

Naturally, Shuttefly was one of my first online options, I’ve been ordering from them  for years.
The quality of their products is superb, the value is amazing and the shipping is always super
fast. I’ve ordered everything  from cards, calendars, invitations, prints, thank you cards and
photobooks – in fact,  I’ve been ordering a monthly photo book since Jack was born!

Here are my top Christmas card options from Shutterfly:

I tend to gravitate towards one image picture cards, I like their simplicity. I’m
also a huge fan of embellish fonts and nice graphics but most importantly, I always
like to select a card that’s unique and special.

Which one would you select from my top three options?
