Mile a Minute Tip Three
Use one ink color to make quick work of your stamping.
For this project I choose Just Jade ink to stamp all my greetings.
You could use Memento Tuxedo black to coordinate easily with any paper you have!
Mile a Minute Tip Four
Choose greetings for similar occasions.
I choose to make Birthday, Thank You, and Thinking of You cards in one sitting.
I used the pattern to make 8 birthday cards, 8 thank you cards, and 8 thinking of you cards.
I'm showing samples of each style.
My greetings come from retired stamp sets, but you could find greetings in these current stamp sets:
Treasured Medallion (part of the Treasured Medallion Bundle)
Oval Occasions (part of Oval Occasions Bundle)
Ride the Range (part of the Ride the Range bundle)
Mile a Minute Tip Five
Stamp your greetings onto scrap pieces of cardstock and make fast work of accenting the cards by using punches.
I choose greetings that would fit into two of my favorite punches:
Everyday Label Punch and
Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch (part of the Posted for You bundle)
Mile a Minute Tip Six
To make quick work of assembling the cards, cut layering pieces of cardstock.
For my cards I used Basic White pieces to adhere the patterned paper to before attaching to the front.
Layer pieces of cardstock were cut to be 4" wide x 5 1/4" high.
This layer piece allows me to line up the 4" x 3" patterned paper to the top and the 4" x 1 1/2" piece to the bottom. Then cover the middle with the piece of accent cardstock. 3/4" high will fit between the papers and 1" high will cover the papers slightly.
After the papers are adhered to this layering piece you can trim the pieces if needed (sometimes my cuts aren't exactly straight).
I will use one of these same layering pieces inside a card that has a dark color cardbase like Basic Black or Cherry Cobbler so I have a light colored surface to stamp a greeting or write a message.
The Mile a Minute pattern should help you make many, many cards for multiple occasions quickly.
I hope you'll give it a try!
