How To Make 50 Cards In One Day

Hello everyone and yes, that title is right as this is what I did just over a week ago having got rather behind on my cards to go in the post. As I didn't want it to cost a fortune posting them, they had to be fairly flat so here's what I came up with using the "kiss" principle - my hubby calls this keep it simple stupid but I think keep it simple and stylish fits better here!
First of all, you need a pack of 50 12.5cm square cards with envelopes which I bought at Tescos for £5 and then you need a variety of papers, stamps, scraps and flat embellishments plus any other things you need to use up.
Here are some of the card designs:

Papers by Polka Doodles, stamp by Hero Arts, greeting stamp by Papermania.

Bird stamp by Funstamps, holly by Art Impressions, paper by Basic Grey.

Deer stamp by Penny Black, papers by Polka Doodles, scallop border by Craftime.

Deer stamp by Little Claire Designs, colouring Promarkers, papers by Polka Doodles.

Paper by Polka Doodles, felt dove and ribbon by Papermania.

Deer stamp as before, paper by Polka Doodles.

Paper and angel digital image by Polka doodles.

As you can see it's quite simple to make cards in bulk with a variety of designs as long as you keep it simple in design.
It wasn't simple to do this post though as my computer threw a wobbly in the middle and I'm finishing this off half way up the stairs as it's the only place I can get an internet connection - technology!!!!!!

Here's wishing you all a Merry Christmas and the hope that 2011 will bring you all that you hope for.
