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!


  • 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.)

  1. Beautiful Christmas cards! I do many of these tips for my cards. One Design. I marvel at the crafters that who come up with many different cards. That just gets too complicated for me at crunch time. LOL

  2. I just ordered this stamp set a few days ago, after taking the Online Card Classes Holiday offering, & I’m looking forward to making this & other projects.

  3. I love these cards! After seeing this post last weekend, I ordered this stamp set and got it in yesterday. I’m about to give these cards a try. Hope they are as pretty as your’s!
