Cards Galore!

These past few days I've been working on a series of mini Christmas cards for a friend. She asked if I make her a few cards and I was only too happy to oblige. For me it was an experiment in mass production with 28 cards measuring 4"x4" making their way down the conveyor belt. I  kept the designs simple, used same basic sketch, switched patterned papers and exercised extreme restraint with the embellishments. It is possible to make more without too much hassle...perfect for spreading some seasonal cheer among co-workers. The card stock is from Papertrey Ink.










For the above four cards, I used patterned papers from Papermania's "Capsule" collection, Spellbinder's "2010 Christmas Ornament" die, Cuttlebug's "D'vine Swirls" embossing folder, mini brads, "Diamond" Stickles,  flower die from Nellie Snellen's Multi-frame Die set MFD026, sentiment stamp by Adam Prescott, Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink, adhesive gemstone and inked up the edges with Tim Holtz's "Vintage Photo" distress ink.







Patterned papers for the above two cards are from Forever Friends "Cosy Christmas" collection, the ornament is from Papermania's "Mistletoe Kisses" stamp set, Versamark ink, Stampendous White embossing powder, "Diamond" and "Crystal" Stickles by Ranger, adhesive gemstone, satin ribbon, embroidery floss for the stitching and the large hexagon die from Nellie Snellen's Multi-frame Die set MFD026 








For the last 2 set of cards, I used patterned papers from My Mind's Eye "Snowed In" collection, X-Cut "Lace Trim" Border Punch, ribbon, Stickles, small snowflake stamp from Papermania's "Mistletoe Kisses" stamp set, Versamark ink, crystal clear embossing powder, smallest die from Spellbinder's Labels 14 set, sentiment by Adam Prescott, Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink and some embroidery floss for the stitching.
