Good morning SCT friends! It's Day 10 of our "12 days of holiday giving!" and while we don't have ten lords-a-leaping for you, we have some fantastic products to give away! With the vision of ten lords-a-leaping in your minds (sorry for that!) let's sing our favourite song!
On the 10th day of SCT's "12 days of holiday giving" SCT gave to me...
"Hey everyone, it's Laura Vegas here! When I sit down to create Christmas cards, I love to come up with designs that are simple, quick, and easy to mass produce. I use this same concept when I create birthday cards, since I use so many of them. I also love to keep my cards fairly flat, so that they don't require any extra postage or special handling when mailing off to family and friends. If I happen to create more elaborate or bulky designs, I save those for the ones that I personally hand out.
These cards took no time at all to put together. I chose a sentiment and a scalloped border to die cut using my Silhouette Cameo, and arranged them on my cutting mat so that I could cut multiple sets at once. I used three different strips of patterned paper on my mat, lining them up so that I cut 2 sets (a sentiment and a border) from each paper. If you were doing a large amount of cards, you could even cut all 6 sets from the same patterned paper, and then repeat for your other paper choices.
Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper: Simple Stories; Misting spray: Studio Calico, Heidi Swapp; Die cut machine: Silhouette; Sewing machine: Singer
I also cut the "merry" part of my sentiment from a black chalkboard patterned paper (arranging as many as needed on my cutting mat), which was layered over the original sentiment cut. Once my pieces were cut, it was just a matter of adhering them to my cards.
I adhered two thin coordinating strips of patterned paper along the bottom of each card base, which I also lightly spritzed with misting spray in coordinating colors. I adhered my scalloped border die cuts to each card, matching the color of my border to the color of misting spray on each card base. Then I decided which color sentiment I wanted on each card, and adhered those in place. A little machine stitching and I was finished! Happy holidays!" ~ Laura Vegas
