Happy Holidays

I've been thinking about Christmas cards that are relatively easy to mass produce without losing those details that make handmade cards so special.  I came up with this, although some things may still be subject to change! LOL  I used the Sparkle & Cheer set from Taylored Expressions.  When I think about mass producing cards, the first thing I go to are my silhouette stamps.  Not having to color each image saves a lot of time.  For this card, I stamped the reindeer image and the sentiment in Versamark ink and embossed them with gold embossing powder.   The whole card uses shimmery white paper, which makes it extra sparkly and pretty. . .especially for the holidays!  I add a strip using the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die along the left edge of the card. 
Now, the only thing I "may" change before taking on the mass production is the embossing.  I LOVE the gold, but sometimes just plain stamping gets the job done quicker!  I think the reindeer and sentiment would also look beautiful in red! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy Halloween!

Beautiful! The gold and white is so classy! (I'm with you on the no coloring for holiday cards!)
