Hello there, Michelle here and today I wanted to share an easily mass-producible holiday card with you using the Christmas Lights Border Fancy Die. In general terms, I do not mass produce cards. I maybe will make two of a card design and change up the colour, but that's it. However, for Christmas and the holidays, I find it easier to pick a couple of designs and then mass produce them.
The Christmas Lights Border Fancy Die is perfect for mass producing as it takes up most of the work on the card! Here is the video showing how I made the card:

I started off by stamping the sentiment from the Comfort and Joy Messages set on to a panel of Lapis Cardstock using Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I then took Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink and blended this around the edges of the cardstock panel. I then added a layer of Navy Mid-Tone Shadow Ink to darken it further.
I took White Glimmer Metallic Ink and splattered this over the panel before setting it aside to dry. I took a panel of Dove White Cardstock and added a layer of adhesive sheet on the back. It was then die cut using the Christmas Lights Border Fancy Die. This was added to the blue panel and then both added to a top-folding card base. Usually with die cuts, I die cut them a few times to create dimension but for mass-producing, I prefer to use just the one layer and I still think it makes a big impact.
To finish off, I added a few bubble embellishments to the card, adhering with Precision Glue. For mass-producing, I will do all the steps individually, for example, stamp and emboss all the panels first, then ink blend them all. I will then die cut all the Christmas Lights in one go and then adhere them. Finally, I would then embellish. I find this assembly line style quicker than creating each card individually.
What about you? Do you like to mass produce holiday cards? Or do you like to create individual cards? Thank you so much for stopping by today, have a wonderful day and happy stamping!
