Black Friday Giveaway: Invitations by Dawn holiday photo cards $100 gift code!

Last year as my husband and I celebrated our First Christmas as Mr. and Mrs., we entrusted our holiday cards to Invitations by Dawn with a design from their holiday collection I was able to personalize on their website to perfectly reflect our personalities. We couldn't have been more happier with our cards and we received countless compliments from family and friends on our unique and attention-getting holiday card design.
Here is a look at "Our First Christmas" card from last year. We loved the statement-making quality of their "Bright Joy" design's front cover, which showcased our official wedding portrait.

The card opened to reveal another layer of the card and more favorite wedding pictures.

The inside of the card was the unique design we wished for, with our custom holiday message to loved ones surrounded by favorite wedding pictures.

When it came time to plan this year's holiday card for our Second Christmas as husband and wife, Invitations by Dawn's outstanding job with last year's card made them our choice.

This year’s collection is full of exclusive designs just for engaged and newlywed couples, but they also have great designs for families and single adults, as well.

The collection includes unique cards – folded, die-cut, petite, storylines and more. There is a price point for everyone's budget. They are having a fantastic Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale on their website from now until Monday with 40% off their holiday cards and free shipping.

Our cards that I custom designed with their easy and fun design tools on their website for our 2012 holiday cards are now on their way to our house to be lovingly hand-addressed to each recipient by me. I will not disclose the design I chose this year *yet* but I will share with you some of my favorites from the Invitations by Dawn - 2012 Holiday Collection.

I am a huge fan of The Beatles' music and even incorporated a Beatles love song into our wedding ceremony music, so I'm crazy about the eye-catching "All You Need Is Love" card design

What a fun and romantic design this is for an engaged couple or newlyweds to sport some bling on their cards!

I love that they offer designs to fit so many different personalities. This beautiful design is a more traditional choice for a couple to convey the romance of their First Christmas

What a fun statement card this design makes that can easily be made into a memorable ornament for your family and friends!

Here is what their designers have to say about their inspirations creating this year's line: “When planning this year’s holiday collection we wanted to do something different to stand out from the crowded photo card market. We took a look at our customer and knew what to do - create a fresh collection of photo cards that let her show off her engagement or wedding. The team couldn’t have done a better job creating this collection. From sweet and sentimental to witty and modern, you’ll find a holiday card that will let your love shine!”

Thanks to the amazing Invitations By Dawn, one of YOU will win a $100 gift code to be used toward your own custom holiday photo cards!

To enter, take a look at their 2012 holiday cards collection here and then leave me a comment below letting me know one of your favorite designs or even more than one favorite, if you care to share. Entries will close Sunday night, November 25 at 10:00 pm EST.
