Santa has a little secret…

Friends! I hope you are all doing well and staying safe this holiday season! This holiday season may not quite look like others, but I hope that yours is filled with love and joy nonetheless.

I wanted to share with you this AMAZING company I recently discovered. Basic Invite is a stationary company that makes beautiful, semi-customizable holiday cards, invites, greeting cards, announcements, business cards, etc. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a bit of a perfectionist (ok, maybe more than just a bit!), and their beautiful designs and color options are exactly what I am looking for. Basic Invite is actually one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options (including stunning flat or raised foil in gold, silver, and rose gold – I’m obsessed!) with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can actually change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it!

Did I mention that not only can you customize colors on the cards, but there are over 40 different envelope colors to choose from allowing you to choose the perfect envelope match your invitation?? To top it off, all of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so that the envelopes can be closed quickly and securely.

The majority of my clients book me for newborn, baby, and family sessions, and using your images to create these stunning cards is a perfect way to share the announcements and milestones in your life with loved ones (check out the beauties below with actual client photos!). And with a somewhat more “normal” life in view hopefully sometime during 2021, we should have so many more opportunities to send invites and celebrate. I can’t wait to use their dinner party invite template to craft the perfect invite to welcome family and friends to our new home!

As a special gift to you, Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code 15FF51. I encourage you all to check them out and order some custom samples before placing your final order so that you can check out the amazing paper and design quality.

xo, Alexia

PS – It may be a touch too late to order xmas cards, but it’s not too late to order New Years cards! Use their holiday cards maker to find the perfect New Year’s card to kick off 2021!
