10 Christmas Cards in 30 minutes or less using Poinsettia Petals stamps
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
So I really wanted to try something new today - I wanted to see if I could make 10 cards in 30 minutes or less, from start to finish, including cutting all the cardstock. It worked! - well, almost. I think the cardmaking portion was just over 30 minutes, but okay - it included everything. It was a lot of fun! And most importantly, I ended up with 10 great Christmas cards for just 30 minutes crafting. You can't beat that! You can find the video on YouTube here.
Ingredients: Poinsettia Petals stamp set; whisper white, real red, and old olive cardstocks; old olive, soft suede, real red, crushed curry, and night of navy ink pads; Stampin' trimmer; liquid glue or Stampin' seal, and Stampin' dimensionals; and gilded gems.
Recipe: Cut a piece of whisper white cardstock in half horizontally, and score and fold in half horizontally, so that you end up with a regular sized card, 5.5x4.25". Cut a piece of real red 5.25x4", a piece of old olive 3.5x2.5, and a piece of whisper white 3.25x2.25. On the smallest whisper white, stamp Merry Christmas in real red ink. Adhere to the old olive cardstock using liquid glue or seal tape runner and set aside. Take a full sheet of whisper white and randomly stamp all over it using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set to make your own homemade designer series paper. I used the medium poinsettia in night of navy, the pine cone in soft suede, the holly berries in read red, the dots (inside of the holly berries) in crushed curry, and the leaves in old olive. I stamped some in first generations and some in second generation (stamped off). When the sheet is full, cut it into four rectangles each measuring 5x3.75 (you will have some scraps to save for another project. Adhere the real red to the cardbase, and the homemade designer series paper to the real red. Adhere the sentiment to the homemade DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add a gilded gem on the sentiment piece.
That's it! Enjoy having ten of your Christmas cards done, kick up your feet, enjoy an eggnog (or something similar), and post your creation, making sure to tag me so I see it. Thanks for spending some time with me! See you next time - bye!
