Mass production Holiday Cards 2009

O.K. well if by "mass production" you mean 8 cards then this was mine. After buying all 3 spellbinder snowflake sets I was committed to using them as much as possible. I had decided to send out a few christmas cards (a major task for me who has never in all my stamping years attempted to take this on) and I figured I could put my snowflakes to use. I love how they look and although they are time consuming I think they are very much worth it. I actually started this project by spending several hours making these snowflakes. I used Pop! tape to give each layer some height. After making the snowflakes I made my first attempt at a snowglobe card (see below) which came out O.K. but I wasn't crazy about the overall look of my globe card and decided on this card instead:

My first snow globe card:
I used pop tape to make Eva my eskimo girl a little more solid. I was planning to attach her but then decided she would have more fun if she stayed loose and was able to make snow angels and play in the snow.
If I ever attempt to make multiple cards again please remind me that it took me most of my spare time over the course of a week to get these done!

2 sketches Angel card

I really wanted to participate in the 2 sketches challenge since we are sponsoring this week and today is the last day. (FYI the prize this week is a complete collection of our Nativity set and coordinating sentiments AND a full pack of Sakura pens. Total value for this prize package is over $60.00!)

I started my card with the idea that I wanted to use a big glittery silver snowflake. I have been in a huge snowflake mood lately (stop back tomorrow for the blog hop and you will see just how many snowflakes I have used on my cards!) All the snowflakes are spellbinder dies. I used a mix of different flakes from 3 different sets. I used our 4" wide Stampers Magic tape to cover a piece of cardstock. Then ran that thru my cuttlebug with asst. snowflake dies. I had to use a couple of sheets of extra cardstock to shim it up and make it cut all the way through, but as you can see it worked. Once I had them all cut I mounted each layer using 1/8" thick POP tape.

I learned with my first snowflake its better to attach the parts together before you glitter it as it makes a stronger bond. So I layered each layer peeling off the liner so that each part was sticky. Once the whole thing was assembled and each layer was sticky. I dumped a container of ultra-fine silver glitter on it. I used a brush to dust off all the excess from the nooks and crannies.

I also made the glitter stripes using Stampers Magic Tape in 1/8" wide. I just ran the double sided tape where I wanted it and then added the silver glitter, again brushing off the excess. I love using the tapes for glitter stripes. Its much cleaner than using glues and the layer is even and not lumpy.
