Today I have some great tips for mass producing handmade cards. The card I am sharing today is one of the swap cards I created for a swap I participate in a few times a year.
I’ve had some questions about swaps and I will address that more below.
MASS PRODUCING HANDMADE CARDS
There are a handful of reasons that I find mass producing handmade cards helpful. Here are a few: making invitations, Christmas cards, thank you cards for an event, swap cards, announcements.
Today I am making swap cards. What is a swap card?
Swaps are events in which cardmakers make several of one card and then swap with fellow cardmakers to get several different finished card ideas.
Here are some of my best tips for mass producing cards.
+ Cut and prep all of your pieces first. For this card, I tied all the bows, cut all the cardstocks, and stamped all the pieces.
+ Once you’ve prepped all the pieces line them all up and assemble your cards.
+ I recommend using an adhesive that is affordable but sturdy, my favorite for mass production is an ATG gun. An ATG Gun is big and bulky but great for mass cardmaking.
