Holiday Card Series Day 25 - 48 Cards 1 Collection Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas

Hello and welcome back to the blog; happy Thursday! Today is Day 24 of the Holiday Card Series. For today's card, I am sharing how to create a fun festive gift card holder or a fun gift card holder for any occasion!


48 Cards One Collection blog Banner

In my video today I am sharing how to create 48 cards using 13 different card designs with only one pack of pattern paper. This is a great way to mass produce cards using only a few supplies. To create all my cards I picked the Farmhouse Christmas Paper Collection from Carta Bella, but you can use any paper collection that you would like. I also added some different dies, a couple stamp sets for a few of the sentiments and the 2023 Tim Holtz Holiday Sticker Pack for a few of them. I have all the measurements for each card and a link to the where I got the card sketches from below each picture of the cards.
