Project Thursday ~ Mass Produce Thank You Cards For Winter

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Cards-HelenGullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here again today with mass-produce card ideas for this coming Winter / Christmas season.

Every month starting November 2018 until May 2019, I make 60 Thank You cards for donation at a Kids Camp programs. When comes to making a lot of cards or mass producing, I like to use clean-and-simple (CAS) style. I use these three CAS card designs for Winter camp which I made 20 cards for each design.

On this first one layer & CAS design, I used the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and the Fall Colors Stamp Set. I stamped the trees and dots with white archival ink pad to create the background. And then I stamped the sentiment from Everyday Stamp Set under the trees with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous.

On this second CAS design, I use the Joy Stamp Set and Everyday Stamp Set. I stamped the wreaths with white archival ink pad to create the background, and then I stamped the Joy word inside one of the wreath with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous. For the sentiment, I stamped it on white cardstock with Memento Desert Sand ink pad, trimmed them into sentiment banner, and then I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

And for this third CAS card, I use the Oh Christmas Stamp Set. I stamped the evergreen leaf with white archival ink pad on the top of the card to create the background border. And I use the Everyday Stamp Set for the sentiment that I stamped it on white cardstock VersaFine Clair – Glamorous and trimmed it into sentiment banner. I wrapped the twine around the card, added the sentiment banner, and tied it up a bow. I added a little bit adhesive glue on the back of the sentiment banner to keep it stay on top of the twine.

These cards are done and ready for the kids at the camp to write thank you notes.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Create It Wednesday~Christmas Cards

Once again it’s time to ramp up holiday crafting, so I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today.  PRS DT Nov both no wmI used three PRS sets including Everyday Stamp Set, Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set.  The A2 size card was done by stamping the large background image from Everyday Stamp Set using Distress Ink faded jeans on a watercolor panel.  PRS DT Nov first no wmThen I spritzed with water & let the ink spread on it’s own.  When it was dry I stamped a Sketchy Christmas tree in Distress Oxide lucky clover and Merry Christmas in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  A stitched rectangle was dry embossed for a frame and I popped up the Happy New Year sentiment strip.  To finish things off, I added silver confetti to match the silver mat.  Sometimes it’s fun to make a smaller card, like my second one which is 3 1/2 x 4  3/4.  PRS DT Nov second no wmAgain I stamped the background image from Everyday Stamp Set.  This time I used pumice stone Distress Ink & blended with a wet brush.  Kind of looks like mountains–perfect for a modern, rustic design.  I stamped the triangle tree from Sketchy Christmas three times in lucky clover Distress Oxide and the word Joy from the Joy Stamp Set in Distress Oxide candied apple.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added a couple extra layers of cardstock for dimension.  I sponged the pumice stone ink on the card front before adding the panel.  Hope I’ve given you some inspiration for your holiday cardmaking.  See you next time.
