Batch Christmas Cards

Batch Christmas Cards



Morning!! I think I was being a bit smug about having finished making Christmas cards. Sadly, when I counted them up at the weekend, I found that I was several short of my required number!! I can’t imagine how I miscounted. Anyway, it meant that I needed to make an additional ten cards quickly. So, I batch made the cards mixing up products from Concord & 9th, Altenew, Hero Arts, and Colorado Craft Company in a few hours on Saturday.





I started by preparing all my materials. I made the note cards from card stock in my stash – they are all A2 side opening cards. I cut 10 white panels to 3½” x 4¾” and 10 black panels to 3⅝” x 4⅞”. I went through my stamp stash and found lots of different stamps sets. I selected a variety of smaller leaf images and stamped them, free hand, on the white panels. I used inks to match the cardstock used for the notecards. Most of the designs are centred on the white panel, but a few are stamped to one side. As well as the various leaf stamps, I added extra detail with a spatter stamp. I adhered the stamped white panels to the black layering panels, and then added them to the front of the note cards. To make the focal sentiments I stamped a variety of greetings in black ink onto white card. I used a stitch edge circle to cut them out and layered them onto a slightly larger black die cut circle. I added the greeting circles flat to the front of the cards.



For the inside of the note cards, I cut 10 pieces of white card 4” x 5¼”. I used a simple greeting for all the cards and added one of the leaf images stamped to match the colour of the note card. Below is a photo of all the card stock used in the note cards above.



I’m very pleased how these turned out.  Most of my Christmas cards are unique, but I rather like how this set turned out. I might even make some for gifts. I think that I have all the cards I need now!! Inspiration for these cards came from Gina K. That’s all from me today. See you again next week.
