Quickest Christmas Cards Details

Here’s a huge tip for you. If you want quick cards, use a piece of designer paper to cover the entire front of your cardstock base! Choose a pattern that has detail images or bold color patterns for the biggest emphasis.


Allow the designer paper to do the “work” and add a simple greeting. I used the Everyday Label Punch on these cards and added a faux layer. You won’t believe how easy it is to create additional layers to your punched greetings or images using a shaped punch. Watch the video for details!

You could easily stop at the designer paper and greeting but I wanted to add a bit more color by adding some ribbon and the coordinating Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots.


The Toile Tidings Designer Paper includes nostalgic imagery. I can’t help but want to hum “Over the River and Through the Woods…” when I look at this paper! 😆 The papers are double-sided providing numerous options and the designs are available in both Real Red and Garden Green.


More Inspiration with Toile Tidings

In addition to the nostalgic wintery scenes you’ll find patterns for stripes and this holly print. I used the exact same layout and simple changed up the greeting.


I created all four of these cards in five minutes! If you need to “get it” done this holiday season take a look at your favorite holiday designer paper, simple greeting and punch.

As a reminder, don’t miss Friday’s video. I’m sharing four quick birthday cards using this exact same concept.
