Pear Tree Greeings: Christmas Card Review

I was excited one day when my husband brought in the mail and I had a package from Pear Tree Greetings! It was a little bundle of Christmas Cards to review and I was excited to get to actually handle them. This is why:

I am kind of a weirdo (I acknowledge this, so don't be mad if you do this) and I really don't like most of those photo Christmas cards that people send out. It seems to be all the rage at the moment, but I hate them. Why, you ask? Because they are so impersonal. There isn't anywhere to write a little note to the person or family you're sending it too because it's on photo paper! Usually it's just a picture and a little "Merry Christmas from the Jones' Family" or whatever. Ugh!

Okay... onto the review... so I received some samples of the Pear Tree Greeings Christmas Card collection. First off, I LOVE the paper! It is made from 100 lb matte cardstock (which is also 100% post-consumer recycled). It's not photo paper, it's REAL CARDSTOCK!

They have cute photo Christmas cards that are cards. You know, like they open up and stuff. So, you can have a picture of your lovely family on the front and then open up the card and write a message to them inside. Or if you like the idea of not having to write anything, they have those too - look at this flat card:

Ho Ho Ho! Photo Christmas Card #9870FC
They are affordable - most cards are between $10-$13 for a set of 8.

They have unique designs and beautiful colors. Here are a few of my favorites:
Peppermint Swirl Circle #7976GRFC

Shades of Stripes in Red #7980RDFC

Subtle Snowflakes in Green #PTG9898GR

And... I think this may be our Christmas Card choice this year... 
Holiday Joy #7965JOYFC

Pear Tree Greetings also has a lovely assortment of Christmas Birth Annoucements, Holiday Business Cards, Christmas Party Invitations, Holiday Thank You Cards, Christmas Address Labels (coorinate your cards and labels!) and much more.
