Tuesday’s Tip #15

Hi everyone!

Welcome to today’s Tuesday’s Tip. These posts are tips about different products, crafting and also ways of stretching the supplies that you already may have. I alternate Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tip just to change things up a bit.

Today I want to share with you some hints on mass producing cards. There are a few examples of handmade cards that you may want to mass produce. Baby/wedding shower invitations, Christmas cards, birthday party/wedding invitations and thank you cards are just a few.  Whether I am making one card or  ten, I find that coming up with the design is the hardest part.  Once the design is figured out, setting up an assembly line makes the process easy. Please note: for steps #3-#9, do each step for all the cards before continuing on to the next step. This is the assembly line process.

These are the steps I used to make my cards. But you might find a different sequence of steps works better for your project. So do what works best for you!

#1} Cut all the required paper pieces and fold the card bases.

#2} Do any die cutting that is needed. Since I wanted the area under the horse/sleigh to look like snow, I added the glitter in this step also.

#3} Background stamping and heat embossing.
