You want to know my favorite way to make several cards? Assembly line style! Make one card, then replicate it. Once you have your card design, the hard part is over.
I break down the steps of making the card into several phases. I stamped the patterned paper, then cut to size. I punched the front of my card bases. Then I stamped all the insides and adhered the patterned paper.
I make cards for my church's card ministry and as a group, we've gotten smarter over the months. Assembly line card making is what keeps us going. This card was the one I made for July's feminine birthdays.
I used one of my favorite CTMH sets – Friendship Blessings – for the patterned paper. Yes, I made my own! Not hard to do, just a bit of random stamping and two step stamping. And let me tell you, two step stamping is a BREEZE with clear acrylic stamps.
I also used CTMH Cupcake Sprinkles for the "Celebrate" and obviously, the cute cupcake image. And I used my all time favorite sentiment stamp set – CTMH's For Every Occasion – for the "Happy Birthday". Colors were Garden Green and Hollyhock – both first and second generation colors.
Yeah, see that punch detail? How cool is that? It's one of Fiskars newer punch releases, the Fiskars Embossing Border Punch Eyelet Lace. Yes, it embosses as well as punches. Pretty nifty. Makes a big impression with very little work.
So, there you have it – lots of cards in a short amount of time. The secret? Assembly line card making.
You can change and customize the backgrounds of an electronic card as per your requirement.
The use of the mistletoe in Christmas celebrations was once banned by
the church because of its associations with pagan traditions, and the use of holly was suggested as a
substitute. More people could afford to buy and send these items because of the mechanization of printing and the other technologies for mass production and because of the mail services
which became available to all at fairly affordable prices.
There’s plenty of free e-cards from which to choose, with artistic designs, flash animations, music, pictures or
videos, giving you the opportunity to send at the same
time professional, polite greeting cards, but also the craziest,
funniest ones possible. Greeting cards should be sent at different times
of the year in order to grace various occasions. Here are some tips to help
you choose the right corporate greeting card to aid your company in building business relationships, while creating a professional image.
Egypt, too, invented a type of greeting card around the same time
as the Chinese. At only 75p per card, invitations for 100 people can cost just AÂ£75.
This is where you add any text you want on your cards.
