Tuesday Tips & Tricks: CAS Christmas

Hello Friends! Welcome to another Tuesday Tips & Tricks! It's Rachel here as your hostess this week and I thought it would be great to show you some of my favorite tips for quick holiday card making. It's easy to get caught up in the holiday spirit and get behind on your card making. It all goes by so fast and before you know it you are scrambling to make your cards. Don't worry, here are some of my tips and tricks for quick holiday card making:

  1. It's best to choose a clean and simple design to shorten your prep time. My card consists of a 4.25" x 5.5" kraft cardstock base, a 3.75" x 5" patterned paper panel and a strip of 1.75" x 5" green cardstock.
  2. Choosing a large focal image really makes your card pop. This adorable snowman from the Christmas Melody Stamp Set by SP and Company is perfect because of it's size and how quickly it can be colored or paper pieced.
  3. Creating your own background paper using text makes is so easy to add your sentiment.
  4. Using foam tape adds dimension and allows you to quickly adhere your finished panel to the card base.
