Holiday Minibook Card Challenge Special Prize Winners

By Hope Tammany, Community Relations Team

Customers love the chic, unique format of our Minibook cards, and they’re always a holiday favorite for sending season’s greetings and family updates. In the Quickfire Holiday Minibook Card Challenge, we asked the Minted Community for fresh, festive designs with a seasonal stamp. The Community never fails to thrill us, and we’re so excited to announce the winners of our Special Prizes below. Congratulations, everyone!

Sweet Simplicity Award for the best clean, simple Minibook card

Modern Cheer” by Paper Dahlia

Our Sweet Simplicity award winner is understated with a punch! Kerry’s clean design and kicky colors create a cheery card with modern appeal. The off-kilter cover photo is the perfect touch.

Glittery Holiday Cheer” by Amber Barkley

Out of the (Gift) Box Award for the most unique, original Minibook card

Annual Nice List” by Up Up Creative

Julie’s design takes our Out of the (Gift) Box Award for both wit and style! We love her clever concept, and the neatly efficient checkboxes and clean layout have us believing this is one volume out of Santa’s records. Simple, sharp, and smart – and definitely on our Nice List.

Traditional Tints Award for the best Minibook card that uses traditional holiday colors like red & green or blue & white

Poinsettia” by Yolanda Mariak Chendak

Yolanda’s signature knack for florals is clear in this beautifully traditional poinsettia design. We love her festive sprigs and blooms, which seem to dance against the dark background. The curved boughs make for an elegant frame.

Make the Season Bright Award for the best Minibook card that uses bold & bright non-traditional colors, while still conveying the holiday spirit

Honeycomb Wishes” by Rio Grange

Not a glimpse of holiday red to be seen, but there’s no mistaking this card’s seasonal cheer! In her very first win, Rio offers a fresh take on the holiday card, using a unique honeycomb design that perfectly frames your photos. The simplest of traditional holiday elements are just the right touch for this modern design.

Festive Full-Bleed Award for the best Minibook card featuring a full-bleed photo on the cover

Midnight Peace” by Dreaming Inspirations

Stephaine swept us away with her charming illustrations! The hand drawn holly and berries are so distinctive, and we love the graceful way they extend across the tabs and the binding. Striking yet subtle, this design is the perfect setting to showcase your full-bleed photo.
