Fast & Fabulous Holiday Cards

Today begins a new series of posts on the A Muse News blog- Fast & Fabulous Holiday cards. I'm excited to say that I, along with the ever talented Tisha have cards featured today. Christmas is certainly just around the corner and the hustle and bustle of the season is just getting started. If you are like me and have not started to to make your Christmas cards then "fast & fabulous" is just what the doctor ordered. Two of my favorite things to use when I need to create a card fast are used in this design. First, A Muse notecards- they are truly da bomb. It is as simple as opening a package and pulling out a pre-cut, pre-scored little treasure! The white core allows for the inside sentiment and personal note to show up perfectly- no more making card fronts then cutting another white card and adhering the front to it! And, bonus of all bonus, the 4-bar size mails without any additional postage!!!! Another good reason to "think simple, think A Muse" so that the layers and embellishments don't cost you extra! Another item that really makes a great quick card is a punch! Yes, I have a huge collection of beautiful dies and I love them as much as the next crafter, BUT when time if of the essence and you want to mass produce, nothing is quicker than our handy punches. Be sure to check out the A Muse blog each day this week for some more Fast and Fabulous Holiday Card ideas! It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!

A Muse products used: Stamps- Evergreen branch, Monogram Frames clear set, Peace and Cheer clear set; White 4-bar notecards, Micro Dot Twinkle Stickers
