Batch Card Making

Hi Everybody,

Sometimes when you have a lot of cards to make it can be a good idea to make them in a batch

Here I have four card that are created in this way and it is a quick and easy way to work.

By that I mean do all the stamping ... all the die cutting ... all the embossing ... adding all the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts  last and arranging them as you please

The first thing I did was stamp the sentiments on each of the cards.

They are part of a collection from  Make The Day Special 

MTDS is a UK based company but they have a lot the US stamps. This is where I have bought the stamps that I have been water coloring

Here is one of the new Avery Elle stamps called  Simply Said    and there all of these and more are on one sheet.  It matches the die that says  You   which I cut from Craft Foam and again in card.  I used double sided tape between the foam and card to glue them together.

I have created my base card and layers with  Pierced Rectangles from Spellbinders  and the smallest layer has been embossed with  Framed Canvas  and both are part of the  Celebrations Collection

Making cards in this way is excellent if you are making a batch of Thank You cards or invitations. Please click the links to view the products.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  12. I love the concept of batch card making and your cards could be used for many reasons. I love that each card is a white and primarily one color. Clean and neat.

  23. Hi Christina, I make cards for charity and I make them in stages, and I often male like you have the layers, that match the card until I'm really to stamp the greeting, however there is a lady I know who arranges flowers and U.S. Willing to help me, so I'll take all the flowers I have and hope to make flower corners like yours, as they are the stars of the card. Thank you for your inspiration. X Ros

  24. Hi Christina
    Using different colours in the four cards would have been enough to make them look different, but changing the flowers as well just adds the special something

  29. Four lovely cards Christina and although the basic cards are the same, they look so very different because of the change in colour and flowers. X

  30. Well, this is another stamp/die set that I simply must have! I probably would've looked at this set and thought, no, that's nothing special, but then you come along and make such gorgeous cards with it. You are pretty darn amazing yourself, Christina..and making me buy way too many dies and stamps. lol Now I just need to start making some cards.
