Quickest Christmas Card We Ever Made

Last night Ann & my favorite huMAN went to a group dinner they were invited to.  She needed to make 15-16 cards and pretty quickly!

Not that either of us would procrastinate…..

Can you believe that she made them all within an hour?  Of course, I think she had already cut the cardstock out, but that didn’t take more than 10 minutes.

Ann’s a pretty slow stamper.  She’s all about enjoying the process than getting it done quickly.  But 10 cards an hour doesn’t work when you need them quickly.

Tips for Mass Producing Greeting Cards

  • Cut all the cardstock
  • Keep ink pads closed when not in use.
  • Wash the stamps at the end, but keep them away from the stamping area.
  • Have someone like your Favorite huMAN fold the card base (or score BEFORE you cut the full sheet in half).
  • A card with no ribbons saves time.
  • A rhinestone on the star would add bling if you have time.
  • Pick a card layout that doesn’t have a lot to line up.

This card only has the pine needles that need lining up and they still look good even when you’re a bit off.

The greeting was actually lined up onto an acrylic block so we only had to stamp once.

The star was an afterthought, but my favorite huMAN liked it so we kept it.

We used Wild Wasabi and Garden Green together – two colors that we need to use more!  And here’s what else we used!  (If you’re reading this in your email, you can see the picture list here.)

Thursday is the last day that you can order and get it by Christmas.
