Make It Monday #267 - Assembly Line Card Making

Hello friends.  Laurie is up this week with PTI's Make It Monday challenge, and she has some great tips on mass producing cards.  It was perfect timing for me as I've been wanting to make some special Christmas cards for the ladies in my bible study group, but just couldn't seem to find the get up and go to make them!  I'm happy to say that with the helpful tips and a little help from my MISTI, I was able to make 10 cards in just a couple hours!  Take a look:



I used O Holy Night for my sentiment, and Winter Woods for the pine branch and cardinal.  My striped paper at the bottom is from the Pure Poppy & White Basics Paper Collection.  A few red sequins on each card and I had 10 lovely cards ready to go, and with the insides done too!  The hardest part of making these cards?  Fussy cutting out the cardinals because I'm too cheap to buy the dies...and even that wasn't too hard!  Yes, I am one of those who likes to fussy cut!  :0)

Less than 7 weeks till Christmas, so this is a great challenge to play along with this week.  Check out Laurie's great video and adorable card, and then play along!  All the info you need can be found right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  13. Less than 7 weeks till Christmas freaked me out. I was going to get my Christmas cards done early this year…for a change. Your red cardinal sitting on that pine branch looks so Christmasy, especially with your awesome sentiment. Great cards, Marcia!
