Thrifty Thursday- Holiday Lineup Cards
Today I have decided to show you three different cards made with the same stamp set and using the same basic layout. I love this set because all of the images are the same size so it makes it really easy to use the same layout and just change the colors.
The basic card is really simple and cost less than a dollar for the paper, ribbon and glue. I also love the 3×6 cards because they actually cost less to make than a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. This stamp set works really well with the 3×6 design. Someone told be that this stamp set has to grown on you, but I loved if from the first minute I saw it. It’s the Holiday Lineup #111648 for $21.95.
I’ve used Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Not Quite Navy for my base colors, which is also economical because they are all earth elements so you can by the 12×12 individually or by the family pack. Then I’ve added the fun in-colors to two of them with ribbon and background paper. The other I used the fun ribbon from the mini catalog. I’ve used StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the image. Then I used a blender pen and the ink pads to color the images. I really like how they turned out.
My down-line actually got to make the reindeer card at our Christmas Party. I hope you liked this and be watching next week for another cost saving project.

Candice, I love these cards. I agree with this set having to grow on you, when I first saw it all I thought was too much coloring, but I have since changed my mind and actually enjoy coloring these images. Now I just need to get the stamp set. 🙂
