Welcome to the second Week of 12 Weeks of Christmas! I make all the Christmas cards that I send each year, which means making about 150 cards leading up to the Festive Season. Anyway of making that task easier is fine by me! Last year I made around 50 Christmas cards for my blog which were all received by family and friends, this year I am planning to sell more of these at Christmas fairs and events, and so need a few more cards!
I often use mass production techniques when I’m making multiples of a particular card, for customer Thank you’s or Wedding Stationary, and will do the same this year with my Christmas cards.
This features a super cute Rudolph (that’s a reindeer!) from the Santa’s Gift stamp set. Before you go grabbing for your Autumn / Winter catalogue thinking you’ve missed something, this stamp set is taken from the Christmas section in the Annual Catalogue. I have added some colour to Rudolph using a Blender pen and Stampin’ Write Markers in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.
Check out the video for the full mass production experience!
These cards are really easy to produce, and would make a great family project for a rainy Saturday afternoon. I’m a big believer in getting children crafting, get them winding the handle on the big shot, or colouring Rudolph’s scarf! They’re have great fun!
The cards are finished by added a dot of Fine Tip Glue to Rudolph’s nose, they would look so cute with some glitter added too!
Mass Production Top Tips:
- Cut all your card stock first, this card uses 4 pieces of card stock – a Cherry Cobbler card base (half a piece of A4, scored at 10.5 cm), a Very Vanilla layer (14.2 x 10 cm), a Basic Grey matt (10.5 x 8.5 cm), and a Very Vanilla topper (10 x 8 cm)
- Do each stage of the process in its entirety – Run all the Very Vanilla layers through the big shot, before stamping all the Rudolphs, colour all the scarfs etc.
- Find your rhythm – fold and score, fold and score….
- Do anything that requires drying time last! (like adding Fine Tip Glue to Rudolphs nose!)
- Have Fun!
