A super quick Christmas card …

Hi, and welcome to my blog. 

So I’m back this week with a new Christmas design for the brand new challenge over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, and I’m super excited to be the hostess for the month of August (how exciting!)  I am really looking forward to setting new challenges each week, to inspire and help you get ahead of the game with your festive card creations. I do hope you’ll join me and the rest of the Design Team.

I’ve kicked off this week with a sketch, and for my design card I made something that is not only super simple and easy to make, but can be easily mass-produced and is quick to do, perfect for when you have lots of holiday cards to make…


This card does not use a lot of supplies and makes great use of all those designer series paper scraps you might have lying around … just like I did. (There will be new Christmas designs from Stampin’ Up in the next seasonal catalogue, due to launch soon.)


I stamped straight onto the base, making a one-layer card – perfect for posting. The fancy deckle edge adds a little bit of design without adding more layers to the card …


Just some added bling to make it festive, and you’re done! 


Top tip:- a square punch makes the flag ends to the dsp super quick and easy to do.

And now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  Why not join us? We would love to see your creations.

  1. Perfectly clean, simply and elegant. I do like the bold papers and the touch of bling around the sentiment. Gill, this is such a fun sketch!

  2. Great card and super idea for mass producing. Is the decal edge from the different trimmer blades?

  3. What a wonderful CAS Christmas card. I love that is is quick and uses up scraps, but it still has a wow factor. I love the the fancy edging too. What did you use for that?

  4. A lovely CAS creation! HUGS! Mynn xx

  5. What a classy card Gill! Love the deckled edges and fun paper banners. Hugs D

  6. CAS perfection, Gill. Love it!

  7. Excellent job keeping your card clean and simple yet very festive!

  8. Hi Gill – did you use ready prepared cards or did you cut the deckle edge yourself? Fab card for mass producing, for any occaision, just change the wording, 🙂 x
