It's Christmas Card Time!

For the last few years I have made card kits for my groups to do at McCalls and this year is no different. We will be making two cards this week and once we get them done and I get them posted I will be uploading the files for others to use. My clients started asking me about the cards back in September and I kept telling them we would wait until it was closer to Christmas.

I have to keep the designs fairly simple since I have 6 in each of my groups and only an hour at a time to complete a card kit with each group. We will get to have group twice this week so we can finish up the cards. I thought I would share the designs with you guys right now so you can get an idea of what we will be doing.

 I will be of course using some printed paper somewhere on this one. I want to leave the background fairly plain so they can use the Cuttlebug on it and maybe the banners. They really love the Cuttlebug and it's easy and safe enough for them to use unsupervised so it makes my job a little easier.

I have changed the snowflake on this one for cutting purposes. When I am doing 12 card kits it also helps for me to keep things simple and not spend time on difficult designs. I got the idea for this one off Pinterest.

Be sure to come back in a few days to check out their completed work. They always get a thrill of knowing their cards are going on my website and I make sure to read the comments to them.

  1. Thanks for the ideas. These look like great ideas to mass produce cards ! I usually give and send out at least 75. Detailed ones are just too time consuming !
