Santa Card - Print and Cut
Tomorrow is the last day of class at my daughter's school and she just asked me to make Christmas cards for her friends, oi! I have been in so much pain today, my heels hurt so much I can barely stand up or walk, well...everything hurts and I keep repeating to myself: Only 6 more weeks, only 6 more weeks! I have never wished the year was over so badly like I do now hahaha.
Anyways, back to the cards...
So, I decided to created something quick. How about print and cut using cute graphics? DONE! I used a Lori Whitlock element I got last year from Jessica Spargue (It is on sale now, hurry...go get it!) and I was going to make square cards so I wouldn't have to get the cameo out of my shelf. But of course my daughter that wasn't cute enough! So I traced the image, made an offset of the traced lines and mirrored it to the left of my original shape, aligned them together and welded them to make a Santa shaped card.
I got two prints per page and I printed 9 sheets of Wassau paper (OMG, I didn't know this paper was so awesome!) which cuts like butter. Beautiful paper! I need to go by Target and get me another stack and it is way cheaper than the Epson presentation paper I have been using.
All in all, it took me 20 minutes to make 18 cards, from designing, cutting, stamping to finishing them. Let me tell ya a "secret"...I used TWO mats lol. You gotta have two mats when cutting a bunch of stuff, it will make time fly!
I hope the kids like it! Maybe I should stop at the grocery store on our way to school and get some candy cane? What do you think?
Thanks for looking and I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas! I am leaving town on Sunday to celebrate the Holidays with our family and won't be able to craft until I get back.
Come check my blog next week, we will have a new Cameo Creations challenge and I am already working on my end of the year project. I hope you like it as much as I do.
