Spreading Holiday Joy

Simon (1)

Hi readers! It’s getting close to that time of year where we all send out Holiday cards to our friends & family.  It’s so fun to receive lots of different kinds of cards, but sometimes when sitting down to MAKE the cards you’ll be sending out it can be a bit daunting! There are ways to make it easier!  The highlight of these cards is this lovely collaboration between Clearly Besotted & Simon Says Stamp!

I’m excited to share this fun design made by Stephanie Wincott with you today, along with some tips and tricks below on mass producing!

DidYouKnow-01

  • Keep it simple, the simpler the better

  • Keep embellishments to a minimum to keep shipping costs down – one layer cards are best

  • Easy way to add variety is by just changing the colour scheme, or by using a variety of sentiments

  • Have a conveyor belt type system in place – completing one element completely at a time (i.e. cutting card down to size, then stamping, then adding embellishments etc.)
