Simple Christmas Cards from the Holiday Catalogue

As much as I love a card with lots of layers & texture, it’s also great to have some designs that are quick and easy to create when you either need a card in a hurry – or you need to make a few.

My formula for quick cards –

  1. A strip of colour – DSP, cardstock or washi tape
  2. A feature – the main shape or decoration of the card
  3. The sentiment – stamped directly on the card to minimise time & fuss
  4. The extra – add a quick ribbon, twine, bling or glitter finish

Here’s 3 cards we made at my Holiday Catalogue class on the weekend using this formula.

Santa’s Reindeer

1 – Candy Cane Lane Washi
2 – Reindeer from Santa’s Sleigh
3 – Sentiment from Santa’s Sleigh
4 – Add a glittery red nose, a red bow & wink of Stella to make the reindeer into Rudolph
