This quick DIY White Christmas Card uses one color of card stock, one bundle, one embossing folder, one all-purpose die set, three ink pads and five dimensionals. This card is perfect for mass production is you have lots of holiday cards to send out. During the coming weeks whenever I feature a card that can easily be mass produced I will include a special ordering table that you can refer to. Over the years, it seems that 40 is a magic number for making holiday cards. Whenever you make a quick DIY white Christmas card you can be sure to minimize your expenses and maximize your time.
Here is the table for this card. I only include the perishable items in this table. You can see all the products used when you scroll down just a little more.
|Product Name||Amount to Order for 40 Cards|
|Whisper White card stock||2|
To maximize your whisper white card stock be sure to cut along the 11″ side at 3 1/2″ to make the scraps you need to die cut the stitched squares and stitched ovals. For the trees I cut 2 1/4″ by 2 1/8″ squares which gave me 16 scraps per sheet. Then I used these in the Stamparatus to get a clean stamped image for each tree.
To maximize your time here is one way to divide up the work:
- Cut and score all the card bases using 20 sheets of white card stock
- Cut and emboss all the Quilt Top Embossing Folder layers using 10 sheets of white card stock
- Cut 8 sheets of white card stock at 3 1/2″ on the 11″ side. Then use the Big Shot with the square stitched and oval stitched dies to create 40 shapes each
- Cut 4 sheets of Whisper White card stock to 2 1/4″ by 2 1/8″ and stamp them with the three layers of the Christmas tree using the Stamparatus
- Cut all trees using the two tree dies in the Sweetly Stitched die set
- Use adhesive and dimensionals to assemble all your cards
