This was my alternative option. The card base is Bordering blue, with a matte of Real Red and White (that's been stamped with the Weathered background). The technique for the main image is emboss resist on Confetti white cardstock. I sponged Bordering blue over the embossed mistletoe, feathering the color to the edge.
Time saving tips for mass production:
1. Use white cardstock for a layer - in this case, I added color by using a
background. A large pack of white paper will stretch the holiday card budget.
2. Use ribbon scraps. This is a perfect way to stretch your ribbon to
3. Minimize coloring - either use solid surface stamps, color washes or sponging,
rather than watercoloring.
Kicked-up cards have a time and a place. Just not for the 110 holiday cards I'll need to make. LOL!
