Once again, it’s December and my cards aren’t ordered-Help me decide


Just like last year, December totally snuck up on me. I blame having family visit for Thanksgiving and being sick. So, once again, it’s a week into December and I haven’t ordered Christmas cards. Of course, this dawned on me after I received our first, and second, and well, a handful of cards already!

Last year, I used minted and ordered their Holiday Booklette™ cards. I don’t think I ever received as many compliments on our cards as when we sent these. I was able to feature so many pictures and actually had a page dedicated to each girl.

A friend sent out Ornament Holiday Cards that doubled as tree ornaments which I think is genius. I love the look of these and that they are easy for family to display.

And then there is the gold Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards. These shimmer and shine. I got my catalogue this year and was drawn to these. They are fun and different and classy.

So many of them allow fun shapes as well giving you card an extra personalized touch.

The letterpress cards are stunning. I love that they have texture which allows such great depth of the cards.

I know I can’t go wrong with any of the minted Holiday Cards and I won’t be disappointed. I love that they support artists and actually have competitions for designing new cards every year (one year, I will submit something!) In the mean time, help me decide on the cards we should send out so I can expedite the shipping! I’m glad that I used them last year as my addresses are already saved, so I can take advantage of the free recipient address printing, too!

Help me decide, which cards should we send out this year?

*Minted has given me a code for cards. All thoughts are my own and I would have ordered from them anyways!

    You’re right. You can’t go wrong with any of them. Whichever you choose, just be sure to triple check what you wrote so you don’t send out a million cards with typos on them like I did. 😉

  6. We just took our pics last night.. over a week late 😉
    I love the Holiday Booklette.

  7. My favorite was the Merry and Bright card. I like the book card too but if you do a Christmast leetter it’s almost redundant.

    I haven’t picked or sent any cards out yet.. I need to get moving. I can’t believe Christmas will be here in just 8 days. I really like the Merry and Bright card the best.
