Today's challenge is over at Tammy Hershberger's place - Stamp Happy! Do you like to get a lot done, and quick? Who doesn’t!!! Tammy’s Featured Project is all about mass producing. What better time than to learn a few tips on making cards quickly?
So, I stepped up to the plate today and decided to take Tammy up on her challenge! I did three quick cards and am providing you with the "sketch" behind each one! You'll see, they are all VERY easy and can be mass produced in nothing flat!
Here's CARD #1
This card is really easy as pie! The main pine cone image is 2-1/2" by 3-1/2" and is matted on a 2-3/4" by 3-3/4" piece of brown that was edged in gold. Mask the top part of the card and stamp the pine cones with Versamark. Add a brown satin ribbon and the sentiment in brown ink and you are pretty much done! The pine cone was stamped in brown and has a watercolor wash in green over the boughs. I also added a bit of sparkle with a Copic Spica pen on the cones. Sponge some Antique Linen Distress ink around the edges of your main piece and.... DONE!SKETCH #1: When you break down the card to a sketch-- you can see just how basic it is! Think of using different focal images, and just pre-cutting your main pieces and mats with coordinating cardstock and ribbon! Doesn't get any easier than that!
There you go ---- three easy cards to finish up those holiday cards! I should point out -- all three cards were made with the same two Hero Arts Christmas sets! Joys Of The Season features the main images. And, Holiday Messages was the set I used for all the sentiments!
