Do you like to make a lot of Christmas cards? With all the other jobs at this time of year, it can feel quite overwhelming, especially if you're mailing them overseas & time is running out.
Finding a design that's easy to make so you can turn it out in large quantities is a huge bonus.
The Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper (DSP) is not only pretty, but has a very versatile ombre/watermarked effect on one side, so you can really showcase the paper and give your cards a wow factor with the absolute minimum of fuss.
I've paired these two cards with a colour of cardstock from the paper to use as a mat. Did you know that when you buy DSP from Stampin' Up! it tells you on the pack what SU colours are used in the paper? This is so helpful if you like to coordinate everything like I do ;)
I have stamped the greeting on my cards in Versamark and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder. That's about the most time consuming part of the project!
Before attaching the layers to the card base, I tied some of the Silver & White Sheer Ribbon across the join where the two patterns meet. Voila! Cards in a flash.
You could also flip the DSP so it's in a portrait orientation and run the ribbon along the join vertically.
Other benefits of this card include that you can cut your DSP to size in advance - mine measures 95mm x 138mm. Then all you need to do is cut it in two pieces - it works better if they are NOT equal in size - and you're ready to assemble the card. And you can add some extra embelli's if you want to take it up a notch, like some rhinestones or even a Wink of Stella.
There you go.....a quick way to make a bunch of cards and maximise your supplies and your stash!
