Day 17 – Holiday Card Series 2011

Good morning!

For today’s card, I wanted to use the Stitched Greeting background stamp from Hero Arts & BasicGrey (on SALE at TwoPeas right now), and the Celebrate the Seasons stamp set from Technique Tuesday & Ali Edwards.  I really wanted to make an easy mass-produce card. This would be a great card to make over and over because…

Tips for Planning Mass-Produce Cards (like your holiday cards)

  • Consider the amount of cardstock used. You can’t avoid the card base, but keep any card stock or paper added to the card at a minimum.
  • Use stamps for 80% of your design. You can use stamps over and over, but you can’t use stickers in the same way.
  • Add inexpensive special touches, like small amounts of glitter or punched edges.

What other tips do you have? I know a bunch of you have been making cards for years and years. What other advice would you give to new cardmakers about creating their holiday cards?
