I make a lot of holiday cards. More than 100. I do a few of them one by one, just playing with design and paper and glue and sparkles (remembering that I love to play!). But I'll admit that I like having a quick design that lets me create a dozen or so all-alike, fast. Here's a great new go-to layout for you.
I CASEd this layout from a friend (and I don't even know who did the original -- it's from a swap!). Hers was a baby card, and it was adorable. I mixed the colors and the focal point, and voila! It's a holiday card! Jen made another card inspired by this layout, here.
I didn't realize until I made this one that the DSP stack in the holiday mini is perfectly sized to make two card fronts per piece. (I'm a little slow on the uptake.) Now that I know I can make 96 cards out of one pack? You'll be seeing a lot of this paper in the next few months. :-)
