Bulk Making Christmas Cards

Hi and thank you for joining me today. Its full steam ahead in the Christmas card making session, only 7 days left to get them in the post at second class stamp rate!

As well as my personal Christmas cards I have Christmas cards for customers to make as well as some for an event I do at Easter to let them know that they are not just for Easter that we think of them all year!

I wanted to use Stampin Up products of course and I wanted them to be fairly quick and easy. I also wanted them to be pretty flat so that they would go in ordinary letter post to keep costs down. I remembered I had got the 'Better Together' stamps with has a lovely Christmas greeting that when stamped on top of each other gives a triangular she which is perfect for a Christmas tree.

To make the process really quick I wanted to stamp the 2 sentiment together at the same time, I did have to trim the stamps down a bit as there was too much space between the words.  If you are going to do this, and I know lots of people do, please be careful not to cut the sentiment!

I used the small star punch that has retired now but I keep it for Christmas cards as it is perfect for a star on a Christmas tree, I also used a retired stamp for the pot (I really cannot get rid of my old stamp sets!) For the tree trunk I used a crumb cake marker and just did a flick.

To line up the stamp I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I could have used my Tim Holtz Platform but that was already set up for another card so I decided to go back to the old school way!

Right now they are done I'd best et to the post office!
