I made this super simple Christmas card to show you that it's possible. Sometimes I think we stress out about what our Christmas card should look like instead of just digging in and getting them done. The point of the handmade card is to do some work and then share it! Everyone who receives your card will appreciate that you took the time to make it. This card uses one stamp set, one ink pad, one framelit and one color of card stock.
I could have used the framelits that bundle with the Santa's Sleigh stamp set, but I wanted to show you making a card with your staple or everyday kind of supplies. Even the banner edge to the greeting was done by hand. I just snipped a little up the middle and then cut the diagonals to meet. That's why I included the paper snips in the list of supplies. These really are the best for those tight corners and perfect straight lines.
This card is not only super simple, but it's also economical. If I was planing to mass produce this card here is what I would do. I would cut my Whisper White card bases first, score and burnish the score. Then I would cut enough 3 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ strips of whisper white card stock to make all my trees. You can fit three trees on each strip – be sure to space them to fit the framelit for cutting. Next I would cut out all the trees using the Lots of Labels framelits. Finally I would cut bunches of 1″ by 3″ pieces of Whisper White card stock. Stamp my greeting on all of them. Then I'd sit down with a good TV show and cut all the banners. Finally, I'd find another show to do all of my assembly.
