IBS Easy Christmas Cards

Happy Monday! 

For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I have some easy-to-produce Christmas Cards using the Festive Greetings stamp set.

As I was making cards to donate, I wanted an easy design to mass produce. This is what I came up with:

Using the circle die from Fancy Label Dies 3, I die-cut through the patterned paper and card stock layer. I then stamped the mitten image, from Festive Greetings through the opening.

Here’s a look at the inside:

I ‘built the sentiment’ on my stamping block so it was really easy to stamp on multiple cards. A baker’s twine bow and rhinestones embellish the cute mitten image.

Waste not, want not:

As I was using a 6x6 patterned paper pack, I had left over strips of paper after completing the mitten window cards. Well, I couldn’t let those strips go to waste! I added White Fabric Tape along the strip of patterned paper to ‘dress it up.’ Of course, I couldn’t let those die-cut circles go to waste either! Joy, also from the Festive Greetings stamp set, was stamped, punched, and popped-up on the die-cut circles!

I used the same sentiment on the inside of these cards (it was already on the block and these cards were all about ease!):

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous cards and I know they'll be appreciated by whoever ultimately receives them. I know what you mean about 'assembly line' card making. That really is the best way to go when you have to make several cards. I normally do that for Christmas, but this year for some reason I haven't. Maybe that's why I'm still not done with them.
