Mass Producing a Merry Christmas
We have all been there. You need a bunch of cards and in a hurry! That usually happens to me every Christmas season. You would think someone who blogs about card making... has cards! Wrong! I am always procrastinating until you guessed it... I have 10 days til the day and zero cards! :-( I am totally a bad card influence! #cardloser
And just in case you think I have it together for 2019 I must confess I created these cards before last Christmas. I never mailed them. Sigh... #doublecardloser
So if you do not want to be like me... you can start early and pick a pattern that is fast, easy and can be changed up easily. Here's a design I did in three different versions that literally took a few hours.
Gray and White
Black and White
Red and Black
You can see I mixed up the design colors using red and black, gray and black along with black and white. I also chose to mask the sentiment and use different colors on occasion. You can really take a simple design and make it your own. I made 5 of these in no time and I used a new toy for me... the Stamparatus. I'm not a Stampin' Up demonstrator so I can tell you that gizmo is super handy! LOVE!
Here's the details for the cards you see! Thanks as always and have a great day!
