Sometimes you just need a lot of cards in a pinch. Sometimes you want to rebuild your card stash and not spend all week doing it. Today I have a really great card design for ‘mass producing’ or replicating. Just because I created a lot of these at once and in a short period of time, doesn’t mean they’re not all one of a kind, as you will see. Let’s get started and I’ll show you how I created 12 of these beautiful cards in just 30 minutes!
12 Cards in 30 Minutes Video Tutorial
Watch along here, to see how I went from start to finish (cutting and scoring card bases included) in just about 30 minutes!
To make a group of these cards, I highly suggest you watch along with the video to see how I cut the paper quickly into the sizes needed. If you’re planning to create just one, here are the pieces you’ll need.
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base
4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ designer paper
2 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ designer paper, trimmed into a banner
2 dragonflies, prepared with the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and Dragonflies punch
1 Label Me Lovely punch
Tips For Mass Producing Handmade Cards Quickly
I shared a ton of tips in my video tutorial, but here are a few tips for producing lots of cards quickly!
Batch prepare your materials – Cut all of your designer paper at once, stamp all of the dragonflies at once, punch all of the tags at once, etc.
When preparing card bases – score a full piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock, then cut it in half, and you’ll get two card bases with minimal effort
Use simple card designs with punches preferably, rather than die cuts
When assembling cards, lay a group of pieces upside down to apply adhesive in batches, then one at a time adhere them to the cards. This saves time compared to applying adhesive to one piece at a time.
