Mass Producing One Layer Christmas Cards
Happy Craftersday, everyone. Today I am going to kick it in gear and mass produce my Christmas cards for the season. If you follow me in Instagram, you’ll know that earlier this week I made a spooky Christmas card for my sister in law. I had more of that paper so I made more of those type of cards which was the inspiration for today.
Like I mentioned in my Christmas theme announcement page, we are celebrating Christmas at the Beach this year. I’ve been placing shells and starfish EVERYWHERE as well as in my cards.
I started by stamping the big shell reef on all my cards in different colors. I used the first generation and second generation stamping technique to get the same color in lighter variations on my cards. Just on case you’re curious generation stamping is how many times you stamp without re-inking. That means the first time you ink up and stamp is called the first generation and if you don’t ink up again but stamp that will be your second generation. I stamp each color twice using Soft Granite, Gray Flannel and Desert Sand.
With the base layer done, I die cut my Pink and Main Fancy Shell die in gray and brown card stock. The die will cut the outline of the shell but I kept all the pieces together and adhered the whole die cut to my card.
Next I made my sentiments. I used stamps from Michaels to create all my own custom seasonal greetings. I heat embossed them in Opaque Bling Heat Embossing powder then cut them down to size before putting them on my cards. I did a few embellishments o the cards and you can see that in the YouTube video below:
