Take three 12x12" matching sheets of your favorite designer paper ... combine it with just one complementing color cardstock sheet (12x12") or two half-sheets of two colors ... and one sheet of white, if you choose. Use no more than three stamp sets and three ink pads, on-hand embellishments ... and just three hours ... to convert 20 A2 (4.25"x5.5") plain white cards into TWENTY (20) unique Christmas cards.
Here are my twenty unique cards:
For my challenge, I took three sheets of the brand new Close To My Heart Sparkle & Shine paper. This is a double-sided paper. I used a half-sheet scraps of ruby, juniper and white to complement. I used just three stamp sets from Close To My Heart: Santa Claus (C1567), Frosted Card Workshop (D1562), and Perfect Fit-Holidays (B1412), along with gems, twine, buttons, glitter tape, and red mini-accents.
To make these cards simple to replicate, I did not use any electronic cutting machines -- just a paper trimmer and micro-tipped scissors. I used a tape runner and white glue for my adhesives, nothing fancy.
...and the best part, I designed and made all 20 of these cards is less than 3 hours!
Let's take a look at the cards, individually:
