Celebrating You Swap Card:  How To Mass Produce Cards!

Tips on how to mass produce 20+ cards with Stamping Imperfections Celebrating You Swap Card

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!

My best tips for mass producing cards:

  1.  Cut and diecut all your pieces first and gather all the supplies you need for the cards.
  2. 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.
  3. Glue the first layer for all of the cards.  When that is done, glue the second layer, and so forth.
  4. 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!
