Cuttin' Up Saturday Christmas Multiples!

Please scroll down for my earlier post and the Halloween Blog Hop! 

Jolly good morning to you on this fine Saturday morning!

This week at the Cuttlebug Challenges we are showing you just how easy it is to make multiples of cards. Since it is National Card Making Day (or is it world card making day?) - a day to celebrate making cards for one another, crafting, and getting ahead on those Christmas cards, I have decided to make Christmas cards.

Paper: Echo Park Merry Christmas™, Bazzill™ (diamond white) 
Pixie Glitter
Glossy Accents™

1. I put all the Christmas trees, their layers, and their shadows on three different "layers" on my Gypsy. All cuts were from Christmas Solutions (Noel)™cartridge. I turned them around to fit as many on a sheet as possible. They were cut at 4.5". 

I took one off while it was cutting so that I could make sure it would come out okay. So I glued the green top to the white bottom and laid it on the top so you could see what it would look like. 

2. The next day I decided to add a maroon shadow to give it some more pop. 
3. I used Glossy Accents on the white part of the tree and then poured Pixie Sparkle over it. I let it dry overnight.
4. I cut out the tags from Sentimentals™and inked them with red ink around the edges.
5. I used my Crop-a-dile™ to punch holes and add eyelets to the tags.
6. I stamped the tags with a sentiment from My Pink Stamper: Winter Punnies™
7. I ran the tags through the Cuttlebug™ with the Snowflakes A2 Winter Borders Emboss Folder™
8. I ran the Echo Park Merry Christmas™ paper through the Cuttlebug™ with the 5x7 Holly Ribbons Emboss Folder™ and on the red and white striped versions, the A2 Snowflakes Emboss Folder™.
9. I adhered the ribbon and all layers using my Glue Glider Pro™ 
10. I pop dotted the Christmas tree and the tag after tying a ribbon around the tag.
11. I put it on the blog to share it with you! If you click on the picture below it will get bigger and you can see the detail.
