Holiday Series 2017 - Day 3 - Mass-producing Plaid Christmas Cards

Hey There!

I'm back today with Day 3 of the Holiday series for 2017.  Today I'm showing you how I mass-produced my plaid background Christmas cards that were mailed to family and friends.

I have seriously been eyeing up the Concord and 9th Plaid Background Stamp Set for quite some time but hadn't purchased it in time to use on creating my Christmas Cards.  So I went through my stamp stash and came across a stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Basic Stripes.  Unfortunately, you can't find this stamp set on any of the major online retailer that I used, however, Simon Says Stamp has a Basic Stripe Stamp Set that would work perfect!

This year I wanted to mix up the sentiment a bit, so I used Lawn Fawn's "Clark's ABC" to spell out merry and Simon Says Stamp's "Christmas Blessing" Die.  Unfortunately, Clark's ABC (which happens to be one of my favorites) is a retired stamp set, however, Lawn Fawn has a TON of alpha stamp sets!

Here's a video showing how I created this plaid background and put together the rest of the card.  I also talk about some tips/tricks that I've learned over the years when creating 50 holiday cards.

I hope this gave you some ideas and tips on how to mass-produce some holiday cards.  I really loved creating these cards!   I'll be back soon with Day 4 of the holiday series for this year.
