Make it Monday #267: Assembly Line Card-Making

Today I joined in on a Make It Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink and Laurie gave us some tips
and tricks when making cards assembly line style.

 This was perfect for me today as I am still creating cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.  The fabulous Jennifer McGuire is how I found out about this great card drive. Vera Yates started this 7 years ago and it has grown bigger and bigger every year. They collected over 22,000 cards last year for the elderly that live in nursing homes! My own goal this year is to do more than 100. I am well on my way but the dead line is fast approaching.

Laurie is on the same page that I am on as far as wanting everything cut, organized and ready to go.
This makes the process so much easier. I cut first, stamp and then assemble. I used a variety of stamps and dies that you see here but particularly Tremendous Treats:Christmas by Papertrey Ink , Pretty Patches:Tree by WPlus9 and Calendar Critters by Taylored Expressions. Paper is by Stampin' Up!

And here they are:
I still need to finish stamping envelopes and get them ready to ship by this weekend.
You can find all the info on the card drive here!

Have a fabulous week everyone!!
