Evie Discovers Her Own Christmas Giveaway

Evie was so impressed with Katydid and Kid's giveaways that she decided to have her own!! She started thinking back on recent play dates to remember what moms were currently talking about...what would be something everyone would want?? Then it came to her! Of course, free Christmas cards!! Evie immediately thought of KM Thomas Designs on Etsy!

Evie ordered her first birthday invitations from Krysta at KM Thomas Designs and loved how they turned out!

This is the design Evie chose so everyone could see how much she had changed throughout the year.

Evie's Mommy recently ordered baby shower invitations from KM Thomas Designs. She told Evie how great it was to work with Krysta on the invitations!! Krysta was always happy to tweak the design or change the wording until it was just like her Mommy wanted it to be...and Krysta was always super quick with sending over the design proofs!

This is the invitation that Krysta designed for the baby shower

Guess what Evie Adventure readers?! KM Thomas Designs has generously offered 3 (yes 3!) certificates for card designs!! Krysta said the 3 winners could use them for Christmas cards, birthday invitations, shower invitations ... anything you find in her amazing Etsy store!

Just in case if you haven't ordered cards through Etsy before, here's how it works:

  1. Choose your favorite design, or contact KM Thomas Designs to request a custom design.
2. Email KM Thomas Designs with:
-your text/wording for your card
–attach your picture or pictures (depending on layout)
And you let her know if you'd like a design for a 4 x 6 or a 5 x 7 print.

3. In about 48 hours (but usually less), you will receive a proof via e-mail. From there, you and Krysta can make revisions until you are absolutely satisfied.

4. Once you approve the proof, you can take it or upload it to any photo finisher (Target, Wal-Mart, Snapfish, etc.) you'd like to have prints made. With this option, you can have prints made for as little as $.06 a piece (4x6)! Or you can have KM Thomas Designs print them for you, and have the cards and envelopes mailed right to your house!!

Note: this giveaway is for 3 gift certificates for card designs (a $15 value each). If you decide to print your cards through KM Thomas Designs, you will receive $15 off the total price. The winners will receive a special code to redeem their prize!

Isn't this amazing??
