Hi, Stampers! Lisa here, with my first-ever photo tutorial! In keeping with the current ABNH challenge, I have a clean & simple (CAS) holiday card that would be very quick, easy, and economical to mass produce. Please bear with me, as the photos were taken at night and my exposures were a bit wonky.
Here is my card! Like I said, super simple and easy, and best of all, super economical to make AND send. 😉 With just a couple of layers and no 3D embellishments, there’s not extra postage required.
Step 5: Grab your larger 1 5/8 x 4 1/4 inch strips of card stock from Step 3. (if you used a piece of gold metallic paper for that instead of the white like I did, then skip ahead to step 6). Using a gold paint pen or marker, just color the edges. Neatness is not a factor here, just make sure the top and bottom edges are well covered, at least an 1/8th of an inch in from the edges.
making. The less you have going on with your card, the more obvious even
the slightest mistakes will be… straight sentiments are important. 😉
And TAA-DAAH… the final card! I know it seems like there were a lot of steps, but I guarantee it all went VERY quickly… maybe 10 minutes per card! The design lends itself well to assembly-line-style mass production. It also has minimal layers and no bulky embellishments or pop dots, so it’s super easy to mail. And remember in steps 2 and 3 when we cut that white card stock into several pieces? Well, just think… each one of those will go on one card front, so you basically have enough for a dozen cards, making this design very economical as well!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial… thanks in advance for going easy on me. 🙂 And I hope this helps you in your holiday card making! If you have any questions at all, just leave them in the comments section and I’ll be sure to answer as soon as I can!
Don’t forget that our Clean & Simple challenge is still going on HERE… happy stamping, friends!
