After making a all my cards for the custom order I thought it would be nice to share the photos and a bit about the process.
I was asked to design and make christmas cards; 350 cards. The honor and making them was so much fun. I came up with two cards; both stamped and adding a little bling and twine as a finishing touch.
The whole process was cut into steps. My husband has been a fab help to cut all the cards from cardstock. And all the silver stars. After that I came in :)
I chose a stamp set of snowflakes in various sizes and a wreath The snowflakes were stamped in my favorite color scheme. The wreath had a classic touch; I love these berries.
I picked three shades of ink and started with stamping the biggest snowflake. All 175, after that the middle size snowflake and finally the smallest one. Next step was stamping the sentiment and on the back a "handmade" stamp.
The wreath is a two step; the branches and the berries. 175 wreaths, 175 berries, 175 sentiments and 175 "handmade" stamps.
I went on a roll a stamped away:) I used a foam mat beneath the cardstock for all the stamping. Worked great!
After all the stamping was done I added sequins on my snowflake cards and the stars on my wreath cards.
The final touch was adding a piece of tinsel/twine. Looking back it went really fast.
The snowflakes and Christmas sentiment are from Stampin Up, The wreath and the berries are from Papertrey Ink. For the snowflakes I used SU Sosft Sky, Baja Breeze(retired) and Lost Lagoon. All sentiments in Memento Tuxedo black.
The wreath is stamped in SU Sahara Sand and Real Red
The star die I used is from Paper Smooches.
The wreath card is delivered with red/white twine but I don't have a decent photo of the final design.The wreath card you see was the design I came up with in September.
I want to thank Miranda (the owner) from Bij Oma Dee. She has been a great help to order all the cardstock, sequins and foam dots.
Here they are; the light is not perfect and the photos were taken on different days:
Thanks for stopping by!
