Double Thanks!

Happy Friday! I have another design team project over at Imagine That! Creative Playground today. I still have babies on my brain as my daughter asked me to make the "thank you" cards for the baby gifts. So I kept it simple so I could mass produce these cards. When mass producing a card I start by finding a design that I like and I test it out to make sure that everything will work out the way I want it.

I actually did several iterations of this card before I got the right balance of the images being the correct size and the sentiment fitting the banner. The image is the pre-colored version of the baby cribs from Imagine That! Little Blessing Stamp set. I die cut the cribs with Spellbinder's Lacy Squares and used Spun Sugar and Salty Ocean distress ink to ink the edges. The sentiments I created on my computer because I couldn't find a thank you sentiment that I thought fit with twins and I cut the sentiment from MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. And I had to use the gorgeous plaid paper from Imagine That! Sweet Pastels Digi Paper. I love that paper!

So if you decide to mass produce a card, here are some of the things that I do. I've already said that I create my prototype the way I want it to look. Then I try to do each step all at one time. So I print all my images and sentiment out after I decide how many I will need. I die cut them all at one time and I assemble each part for all the cards at once. Kind of like an assembly line method. I find that works much easier and seems to be faster from start to finish. 
I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed a peek at my weekend project. Check ut all the fun over at Imagine That! Creative Playground.  I will be very busy. Have a wonderful weekend!
