Back to talking about Christmas cards...

This particular style card is one you could mass produce if you create in stages.  How about this?

  1. Cut your cardstock bases and designer paper layer.
  2. Die cut your layering frames.
  3. Stamp your images and sentiments.
  4. Color your images.
  5. Cut and tie ribbon around designer paper.
  6. Assemble front of the card.
    Not shown here but something else you can do...
  7. Cut neutral cardstock layer for the inside of the card.
  8. Stamp inside sentiment.
  9. Write your greeting and sign your card.

When you break it down into steps like this, it seems manageable, doesn't it?

Here are the products that you will need to make this Christmas card.
