Stamp Simply-- Mass Produce It!!

Hi all! Happy Friday! Hope you had a happy turkey day and ate lots of goodies! :-) With the official start to the holiday shopping season, you know.... your time is limited for stamping! So, today the Stamp Simply team has you covered! Today's challenge (ssnotime115)is all about mass production! Create a card that is SUPER easy to mass produce -- like once designed you could realistically sit down and do 6 or 8 or more within an hours time. Super simple, easy to reproduce cards for Christmas or any occasion that suits your fancy -- that is our today's challenge!

Recently, I decided to make a handful of Thank You cards to have on hand and with a fun new embossing folder I picked up -- it was easy as pie to create 6 of these in 45 minutes!
I used some textured Coredinations cardstock that I bought in a big pack at Hobby Lobby and cut it to measure 4 by 5-1/4" I ran it through my Wizard with the Quick Kutz Vine Label Embossing Folder and then the fun began! I used a sanding block to sand down the embossed part to reveal the pattern. Since this folder has a little "window" for a sentiment - I cut a strip of paper 1'' wide to fit in that window. Stamp a sentiment in Teal ink (Vivid) and.... the rest is matting! I matted it on some pearl paper and then again on a standard size white card stock base and .... voila! You can see -- picking the paper, finding ink to match and cutting was the longest part of this process! I easily made these in a half hour.

Here's a peek at the sanded portion - I just love the look on this paper!

Well my friends, that's it for today! Be sure to check out the official challenge rules over at Sharon's place and then, stop in and say "hey" to the rest of the Stamp Simply Team!
