Merry Monday 2010 #1

I've been working on Christmas cards (who hasn't??), but I was smart this year...
Last year, I was scrambling to get all my cards done by Thanksgiving, as I give my Mom, my sisters and my hubby's Aunt a boxed set of cards as an early Christmas gift (see post HERE for the story and last year's cards)

This year, I got a head start on my cards, so I'm ahead of schedule. YAY me!

I've decided to start a MERRY MONDAY post to share my 2010 cards with you. I'll be posting Christmas cards every Monday until Christmas. I made 6 each of 12 different cards, and as these are to be mailed I kept them standard A2 size and limited the embellishments so they aren't bulky. I'll try to post recipes if I can remember what I used...this has been a 3 month project.


Paper: CTMH Mistletoe Level 2 packet
Stamps: CTMH C1427 I Believe
Ink: CTMH Chocolate Holiday Red and Bamboo
Red satin ribbon
Red gemstones and stickles

Paper: CTMH cs in White Daisy and Holiday Red
Stamps: D1446 Adornable
Ink: Versamark
Silver embossing powder
clear gemstones
silver cord

Have a Merry Monday!


  1. Love the cards. Did you stamp or cut out the word JOY?

  2. Oops, sorry Carol, forgot to list it in the recipe...the letters are cricut cut using Plantin'Schoolbook cartridge. I wish I could stamp that clearly!

  3. Love both of these cards, great work Lorrinda!
