I always feel like my kids go back to school and then it’s a whirlwind of school and holidays. Nonstop activity until the New Year! *laugh* I’m trying to get a head start on some Christmas card ideas.
For today’s cards, I used three new products from the Essentials by Ellen August release. I think the Holiday Characters are just the cutest and provide a variety of options for craft projects. If you get this stamp set, do yourself a favor and pick up some red Nuvo Drops. The reindeer needs to be Rudolph. LOL!
I paired these adorable characters set with the new Retro Holiday Greetings. I pulled out my favorite stencil (Square Brutus Monroe) to create this card and then it occurred to me that I could get two cards out of one background!
This method of creating two cards with one die is a great way to mass-produce your holiday cards. You can easily create backgrounds and stamp & die cut the Holiday Characters on the front with a sentiment for a quick & simple card!
See the video below for a quick visual walk-thru of this process. If you want to pick up the Skinny Stripes Die, August 15-17, 2019 dies are 20% off at the Ellen Hutson shop with code: WELOVEDIES2019
