Day 1 – Holiday Blitz – Making Multiples

Holiday Blitz Day 1: Making Multiples

I’m excited to share my “secret” project with you all!  A few months back, I was trying to think of something I could do here for all of you this holiday season and I got the crazy idea to create 30 holiday projects in 30 days.  Crazy, right?  I was all, “Naaa… only do 12. It’s easier.”  But then I started wondering if I could actually do it.  And don’t tell me I can’t do something because then I’ll want to do it even more!  And so… here we are!

2019 Holiday Blitz Series:  For the next 30 days, November 1 through November 30, there will be a new video posted here.

This project was totally fun to do, but as soon as December 1st comes around, it’s back to business as usual.  Seriously, I don’t think I want to attempt to do something like this again for a long LONG time.  LOL!  And hopefully ya’ll won’t get sick of me posting a video every day! 🙂

Day 1 Project Tutorial 

If you’re like me you think, “I’m a card maker, so why not make the cards?” But as your greeting card list grows and grows, it looks like simply buying cards would be much easier because creating all those cards is a daunting task.  The reality is that with some pre planning, making multiple cards can be simple and quite enjoyable.

Tips for Creating Multiples 

  • Designing a card: Start by designing a card that is easy to duplicate, the less die cutting the better
  • Sentiments: Are you die cutting, stamping or printing your sentiments?  or you could always add no sentiment
  • Variations:  No one knows if you used the exact same green patterned paper, so if you can’t find a large enough quantity of exact papers or embellishments that’s OK.
  • Create an assembly line:  Now that you’ve cut, punched and stamped all pieces for your cards, this will make everything ready to grab and go and assemble

This is the card we’re creating today.  It has one punched elements, one greeting with one ink colour and in the video below I share with you some tips on creating your assembly line and together we’ll create 10 holiday greeting cards

  • Real Red CS:2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Sahara Sand CS: 2-1/2″ x 3-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS: 1/2″ x 2-3/4″
  • Gold Glimmer Paper: 3/8″ x 2-3/4″


  1. Stamp greeting in Real Red ink onto White Cardstock
  2. Adhere the greeting strip and gold glimmer paper together with a staple
  3. Mat Sahara Sand CS to Real Red CS.  Add punched tree to matted CS using Stampin Dimensionals. place the greeting to bottom of tree with adhesive
  4. Adhere matted card to note card.  You’re done!

With these tips, you will be surprised at how easy it is to make large numbers of multiple cards for any card making event.  Take some time today to get a few cards designed and work on them as you find moments in our busy life.  It really is a fun and simple way to have all the cards you need on hand at any given moment.
