Batch Making Christmas Cards0
Nicole here to share a batch making process to help you get started on those Christmas cards! I like when I am making cards to be able to make a few of the same if I am cutting into a sheet of A4 card. It is more economical with the card and my time! For this project I used:
- Papermilldirect Hammered White Card
- Papermilldirect Blue Plain Card
- Papermilldirect Navy Plain Card
- Papermilldirect Blue Plain Card Blank
- Christmas Stamps
- Red Stickles
- Foam tape
- Reindeer SVG file
When batch making I start with one colour card and cut all I need from it in one go. In this case I started with the Papermilldirect Navy Card. I cut a reindeer SVG using my Silhouette from this. The card cuts so well on the card so even though its an intricate file it cuts perfectly.
I then cut my layering panels from the hammered white card.
I then cut banner shapes from the blue card.
The last thing I cut was some scalloped shapes for the top of the card. These scalloped shapes I used my MISTI to place and stamp the sentiment on this.
I adhered this on top of the banner shape with foam tape. I also added the reindeer to the banner shape with a combination of glue pen and foam tape to add some dimension to it.
I added the banner shape to the white panel with foam tape at the bottom and glue at the top. This again gives some dimension in a fun way.
I added the red Stickle's to the reindeer's nose for that Rudolph effect!
This then gave me a batch of three cards, with not much more effort than making one card!
I love the texture the hammered white card adds to these cards, and the foam tape dimension too. The red noses on the reindeer is the perfect touch too don't you think?
