Finally got a sec to catch your breath and think about Christmas cards? Here's a super-easy design that is extremely simple to mass-produce with a square punch, that you can do in any color scheme. You'll have your cards in the mail in no time!
- snowflake stamps in assorted sizes (I used Snow is Glistening)
- three or 4 coordinating colors of ink
- square punch or squares cut to about 1.25 inches
- Dimensionals for popping up.
- self-adhesive rhinestones or pearls
- Whisper White cardstock
- Cut a sheet of Thick Whisper White 8.5 x 11 in half horizontally, resulting in two 5.5 x 8.5 inch (medium) card bases. Set one aside. Fold the other in half to form card.
- Cut Whisper White to 4 x 5.25 inches for the background. Stamp the small snowflake grouping in Balmy Blue on the upper left corner and the lower right corner. Adhere to card base with an equal margin on all four sides. Set aside.
- Cut out or punch out four squares of Whisper White cardstock approximately 1.25 inches each.
- Stamp the largest snowflake in Blueberry Bushel ink on of the squares. Stamp the small snowflake in Highland Heather ink on the second square. Try not to stamp dead-center--snowflakes are random!
- Stamp the third square with the medium snowflake in Granny Apple Green, and stamp the sentiment on the fourth square.
- Go back and stamp the mini snowflakes in different colors, as shown, cleaning the stamps between colors.
- Adhere the four squares in a grid on the upper 2/3 of the card base, using dimensionals.
- Embellish with rhinestones as desired.
Isn't that simple? I love #simplestamping because it gets things done and in the mail. Sometimes we make too big of a production about our holiday cards and they wind up feeling like a big chore. Which is NOT why we do them, right? So help yourself this Christmas by choosing one of the easy, flat-for-mailing designs in the Christmas Card category here at Song of My Heart.
Here's a couple of other color combos I thought would look great with this layout! Sometimes when I'm making a whole bunch of the same card, I switch up the colors so I don't get bored.
What's your best tip for mass-producing cards at this time of year?
