A card with a difference with Choosey cards

Anyone else in love with this season? I didn't think it was just me.

We're really getting into the festive spirit over here, including present wrapping (I love present wrapping for getting me in the Christmas mood) and card writing. This year, I'm trying to put in more effort into my Christmas cards, especially as they'll be the first ones with Henry included in them. I swear becoming a parent has made me so sentimental!

Anyway, alongside our normal charity box of cards, I've gotten some extra special cards for family members courtesy of Choosey*.
Like many card sites online, you choose from a selection of designs, for different purposes, and then tailor the inside to say what ever you like.
What makes Choosey unique is that you can add an AR video to the inside of your card - and to be honest, it's pretty cool.

As we have an insane number of videos of Henry - mostly laughing his socks off at something random - I thought we'd include some of those videos inside of Christmas cards, to bring something a little special to Christmas this year, and make the cards a real keepsake (because we all know that 90% of our cards go straight into the recycling bin in the New Year) which you know I love. I really think I'm turning into a sentimental hoarder. You'll find me in years to come buried under old Christmas cards and photos - and I'm totally OK with that!

How does it work?
You upload your video into the Choosey website onto your chosen card. This is then printed in the form of a code inside the card, opposite your message (or you can leave it blank and hand write it, which I actually prefer to do).
All the person who receiving the card has to do is download the app, and follow the instructions to view the video. As simple as that.

It really is a cute and unique way to add a truly personal touch to your Christmas cards this year, and let's be honest, this year needs a great ending!

Have you sent an AR card before? What did you think? Or would you send one this year?

*cards were gifted as part of this blog post - but all opinions, as always are my own.   


  1. OO these are so different! How fun is that! I'm not sure what would be more fun, making the video and setting it all up, or watching my mum and dad figuring out how to watch it haha!
