On Friday I start getting the pieces ready for the Christmas card that I'm making. I have finally decided on a design and now it's just a matter of building the cards. There's a lot that goes into putting together multiple cards so I took the idea from Lisa's workshops to have all of the pieces ready and then build the cards (all 30).
So first I cut out the base of my card. I used the basic card size of 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 so that I could get two card bases out of one piece of cardstock. Here's my base:
Next I figured out the measurements for the other layers of the card. I am using a printed paper on the front of my card (called designer series paper by SU!). Down by my thumb (see below...sorry for the pictures, my lighting was not good) you can see the paper that I'm going to use, one with ornaments and another with snowflakes. I cut out all of the pieces of the printed paper that I'm going to need.
Then I cut out pieces of off-white (Very Vanilla) paper for the inside of the card where I will stamp my message. And then finally I cute out strips of paper that will go across the VV paper to add a little something to the inside (that's the stripe paper that you see below).
I put everything in baggies so that they'll be ready to go when I start building my card. Now all I have to do is cut out one last layer of paper (it should be delivered today), stamp and build.
Here's a preview of one of the stamps that I'm going to use that came in the mail yesterday:
