Make Your Own Christmas Cards - Easy to Mass Produce

Card made with the Stampin'UP! Stamp Set: Punch Pals
Do you make your own Christmas Cards? Some people make individual designs for each person they send to. Most folks (me included) look for a design that's easy to mass produce. Check out this darling card made my my downline Mary Ploeser. 

Mary is a busy lady, she works full time and does volunteer work, as well as running her Stamping Business.
**One thing she has going for her is her talent
, isn't this a super cute card?
**Another thing she has going for her is that she is part of our local group
. We have a very active group of demonstrators in the area who share ideas and trade cards often. With that kind of success you can't help but be successful. Contact me if you'd like to hear more about this powerful group.

This card is easy to Mass Produce
. This was Mary's trade card from our last demo meeting. Its such a simple design that it was easy for her to mass produce. She used 3 punches: the 1-3/8" square punch for the white piece with the images, the Scallop Square Punch for the scalloped layer behind the images and the Scallop Border Punch for the vertical black scallop strip. That vertical strip also has a 1/2" strip of Whisper White and is tied with the 1/4" Black GrosGrain ribbon.  The images are from a stamp set called Punch Pals. The whole thing is set on a base of our Real Red paper. Imagine her pride in sending out these for the Holidays and how impressed her friends and family will be to receive them.
Hint: one trick to making this card go faster is to remember to stamp first then punch. By stamping first it was easy for Mary to line up the image in her punch. You can get the supplies for this card and all your stamping needs here
