Christmas Photo Card Sleeves

My original prototype for my Christmas photo cards was too labor intensive for mass production.


I cut down on the punching and eliminated the ribbon and sewing to come up with these:



Selective inking, die cut holly leaves and red Liquid Pearls. The corner snowflake punches aren't very apparent in the photo.

Hooray, I'm done!

Quick tip: Even when Liquid Pearls are dry, don't stack your cardstock over top! Some of them stuck together and pulled a bit of Kraft with them!




{Supplies--all Papertrey Ink unless noted}
  • Cardstock: Kraft, green (Bazzill?)
  • Stamps: Merry Christmas Ornament (Hampton Art)
  • Ink: Memento Ladybug and Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko)
  • Dies: Holly Jolly
  • Other Tools: snowflake corner punch (Martha Stewart), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Ruby Red Liquid Pearls (Ranger)

I like the added green to these compared to your first one. Can hardly wait to see what's inside! lol ;)

Both designs are lovely. But I agree that when you're mass producing the easier the better! Great job! ;o)

Wow, both designs are gorgeous, Dana! I may have to follow your lead and go for a simpler design for my Christmas cards because I am nowhere near done with them lol. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
