Like many bloggers, Ellie began Mint as a way to sort and save her favorite artists, designers, and online shops, but it quickly grew into a community of like-minded readers.

Paper is such an integral part of the holidays. The mantel and fridge are filled with cards from friends and family, and then there are all those beautifully wrapped gifts to be exchanged. While paper isn’t usually considered a form of holiday decor, it’s a big part of what makes the holiday season feel like, well, the holiday season.

[1. Letterpress Notecard Set from Thimblepress; 2. ‘Tis the Season Set from Gingiber; 3. Custom Chalkboard Christmas Card from Lily and Val; 4. Christmas Joy Wreath Card from One Lantern; 5. Dove Postcard from Sass and Peril; 6. Season’s Greetings Christmas Cards from Wonder Forest; 7. Ornament Holiday Cards from Stoneburner Books; 8. Holiday Cards from In Haus Press; 9. Champagne Year Card from Rocket Ink.]


This year I can’t get enough of neutrals: black, white, and gold all over. They’ve found their way into my invitation designs and my home, so it feels natural to extend that classy, timeless look to my holiday card picks.

[1. Wooded Gift Wrap from Tara Hogan; 2. Tumbling Paper from Katy Goutefangea; 3. Family of Trees Gift Wrap from Urban Bird and Co.; 4. Give Warmth Reusable Gift Wrap from Chewing the Cud; 5. Printable Gift Wrap from Kim’s Little Monsters; 6. Chartreuse Field Gift Wrap from May Day Studio; 7. Pin Tree Wrapping Paper from Charlene Man; 9. Falling Leaves Gift Wrap from Hand Printed by David.]

Wrapping papers that don’t scream “Christmas!” can be used throughout the year. With the addition of a red or gold ribbon, they look festive and modern.

 

[1. Ornament Card from Meesch; 2. Silent Night Holiday Cards from Vandalia Street Press; 3. Red Pattern Card from Dead Weight; 4. Holiday Joy Letterpress Cards from Paper Lovely Press; 5. Mountains Card from Katy Goutefangea; 6. Happy Holidays letterpress card from Parrott Design Studio; 7. Holiday Note Cards from Hello Tenfold; 8. Dasher Holiday Card from Smock; 9.

For those who want a little more color in their holiday season, these cards are bright, festive, but still modern in their handling of type, color, and illustration.
