2010 Christmas Card

YIPEEEE ~ I am almost done with my Christmas cards for 2010.  I just need to print a few more pictures, print my letter & stuff the envelopes! WOOHOOO!

As an added bonus, I was browsing around blogland for sketch & color challenges earlier this week and realized that my card fit this week's CPS Sketch Challenge (#197) perfectly!

I really don't like doing mass production; however, this time of year, it is necessary.  The key to making 90 cards, is to do them in steps.  Trim all the papers at once, punch all the snowflakes, stamp all the images, etc...  As I am cutting, I put them in piles of 10's ~ that helps me keep track of how much more I need to cut & it also counts down the total for me (I'm all about getting it done as efficiently as possible).  The other tip for mass producing ~ make sure all of your paper sizes are easy measurements to trim.  For example, make the width 4" so (1) you can get more from your 12x12 paper & (2) it's easier to cut a large quantity.


And here are the 90 cards ~ waiting for Stickles to dry.

Hope you've got your cards done ~ I'm sure glad mine are almost out the door.

Supplies from i{heart}papers:
Stamps ~ Our Craft Lounge (Vintage Swirls, White Christmas)
Pattern Paper ~ Echo Park
Stickles ~ Frosted Lace
