Spreading Holiday Joy
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.)
