Design team make...Batch Making Christmas cards
Hi everyone...Genny here. As I started making my first card here, I suddenly thought that I needed to make a lot of Christmas cards in a hurry and got to think about batch making some..so I did and here they are. I've already made a lot of Christmas cards but have given little thought to my own. At this time of year I seem to be playing catch up with all the orders and getting ready for Christmas..as I'm sure many of you are. Batch making cards seems to be the way forward. The first step is to find a stamp that you like and then go with it. I began with this wonderful stamp from Stampendous Stamps...which is available from Julie here at JB-Crafting Supplies.
I began by stamping my image using my memento inkpad and I did four of the image. I then coloured them all in using my promarkers but chose different colours. I then found some Christmas papers in my stash...Julie has a wonderful collection and covered some 6x6 cards with the paper.
I then cut out the snowmen into a square..you could use whatever shape you liked..and then added a peeloff border. Finally I added the greeting and there I was with four cards in the same time that it normally took to make one. If, like me are behind with your cards..why not give it a go.
If you are short of any Christmas inspiration..why not take a look round what Julie has for sale. The thing that I love with Stampendous Stamps is how clear the stamped image is and no matter what the size of stamp..they stamp really cleanly. I hope that you all will remember that card making is supposed to be fun..so don't get stressed..just enjoy what you're doing. And with the weather being what it is..there is nothing better but being inside crafting. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
