Friday, Nov. 27 - ssnotime115 - Mass Production -- We've done something similar before, but at this time of year when many of us mass produce Christmas cards (that should be mailed out real soon!), I thought it was appropriate to do this again. Create a card that is SUPER easy to mass produce -- like once designed you could realistically sit down and do 6 or 8 or more within an hours time. Super simple, easy to reproduce cards for Christmas or any occasion that suits your fancy -- that is our today's challenge! Have fun and can't wait to see!!!
I've pretty much got all the cards I need done, so I decided to take advantage of this and get some treats done up for little Christmas gifts for my co-workers. And it was FAST! Once I decided on what paper and image I was going to use, it probably took me about an hour to get all six of these candy bars dressed up.
First, I cut all the paper pieces 6" x 6". Then I put red line tape on all of them before moving on to the next step, which was cutting ribbon. I stamped all the images at the same time, using a stamp from Just Rite's Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers set (this one was really quick because I didn't need to do any coloring), cut them all out at the same time them went back and embossed all of them. That saved some time just not switching back and forth on my Cuttlebug. Same with the green mats. Then I wrapped the paper around all of them, tied all the ribbons on, and attached all the tags with their little rhinestone accents. Voila! They were done! I need to do about 10 more and I'll be really done. I can probably get all of them done in an hour now that I've got my system down.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime115 if you upload to a public forum. Check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team!
