Minimal Merry Little Christmas

Today’s card is one of my minimal supplies designs.

Many people take up card making on the lead up to Christmas as a way to keep the costs down and start a new hobby in the process. For these newcomers I like to have some designs to hand, that only need a single stamp set and one or two colours of card and/or ink. I don’t think it gets any slimmer than this on the supplies side Smile

Stamp set: Merry Little Christmas (wood mount) – 131826 – £12.95
Card: Coastal Cabana – 131302 – £6.25
Ink: Bermuda Bay – 131171 – £4.95
Tool: Stamp-a-ma-jig (recommended) – 101049 – £10.95

Total =  £24.15 (or £35.10 with recommended Stamp-a-ma-jig)

Cost per card = 34p/49p plus bragging rights

The card is a single layer, 3-1/2″ square (so you can get 3 from each A4 sheet – 72 in total). The colour choice is pale enough to write on, so no need for an insert, keeping postage costs to a minimum. If keen/later on, I’d recommend the use of the Stampin’ Trimmer (129722 £25.95) to cut and score the card but to begin with a ruler, pencil and scissors from around the home will work. The border is stamped around the edges first, then the sentiment in the centre and the flourishes in the corners. A stamp-a-ma-jig gets these lined up just right.

Of course as you build up supplies you can start to add extra little touches and decorations Laughing
