Tuesday Tip: Card Stock Tips for Your Christmas Cards


Today's tips on card stock is one that may be helpful for you while working on your Christmas and holiday cards.  These tips are ones that I use every time that I make cards!  I realize that many of you may be aware of this already, but if not, you just might find this very helpful when making batches of cards...or, as I often say, a gazillion cards!

It's a quick video, so please take a couple of minutes to watch.  You just might find it to be a time saver when making cards!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Keep a supply of these neutral card inserts in a box or container.  This way, you'll have what you need to complete a card at your fingertips.
  • You might be tempted to trash those extra 1/2" strips.  I can't tell you how many times these thin strips have "saved" me...and, I'm talking saving time!  Who can't use more of that?
  • If you'll keep a stack of both Very Vanilla and Whisper White, you'll always have the right neutral for whatever standard sized card you make.
  • Cutting instructions: With the 8 1/2" side at the top of your trimmer, cut at 4" and set aside, then take the remaining piece and cut at 4" again.  Save that 1/2" strip that is left over! Next, take each of the 4" strips and cut in half at 5 1/2". The long side should be up across the top of your trimmer.
