Celebrating You Swap Card: How To Mass Produce Cards!
I did a crazy thing…I signed up to participate in a card swap!
Why is that crazy?
You have to make 20+ of the same card!
Of course, I didn’t design an easy card! One of the conditions of the swap was that the card must be a “demonstrator quality” card.
I wasn’t sure what that meant. It said that it had to have more than one layer and at least one embellishment.
My first design looked like this:
I really liked this card. I do have to say that punching out the “you” with the Hello You Thinlets is okay if you’re only making a couple of cards…but 20+ cards? That would be a NO!
So I redesigned the card to use the other part of the diecut! Much easier!
I LOVE this Crazy About You stamp set. It has 3 great floral images which I’ve used on this card. The really great thing about the stamp set is not the images (although I love the image!), it’s the sentiments! WOW!
You can also get it bundled with the Hello You thinlets:

My best tips for mass producing cards:
- Cut and diecut all your pieces first and gather all the supplies you need for the cards.
- Do one step at a time. Do all of your stamping on each layer. Stamp all images on one layer before moving on to the next.
- Glue the first layer for all of the cards. When that is done, glue the second layer, and so forth.
- Add your embellishments and final touches to all of your cards at once.
The fun thing about doing a card swap is that you get 20 different cards back! I’m looking forward to getting mine in the mail this week. I will be sharing all of the clever ideas with you on my blog and Facebook page as soon as they arrive!
