Christmas Cards with Stencils and Copics - VIDEO

I'm staying on the theme of Christmas cards for the time being, and mass production, but unlike my last video, I've done a bit more colouring and added in some stencilling and die cutting. I've still kept it fairly clean and simple.

This is another of the cute angels from Pretty Pink Posh (you can get them in Dies to Die For in the UK). I've used a cloud stencil on the background, die cut the top panel with an MFT stitched window die and added a simple sentiment. I've popped up the die cut panel over the clouds and added in the Copic coloured and fussy cut angel with some foam pads.

You can see more of the process in my video either below or over on my YouTube channel (this is an external site and will have cookies). 

I'm also only 1 away from 300 subscribers! I know this is peanuts compared to some of you, but for me this is a huge leap, so thank you to everyone who stops by to watch and support. You are all appreciated more than you know!

I find with mass production as long as you have a clear production line, even more complicated cards can be pretty quickly done.

I'm pretty busy with getting my Etsy shop up and running and have an Etsy mentor who is making me do lots of inventory and work on my processes and make up as many bags as possible.I'm hoping that in the next three weeks, I'll have some more in the shop. Watch this space!

As always, thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting :)

I just went to check if I was subscribed to your YouTube channel and found I wasn't. So you'll be happy to know that you have now reached 300 subscribers. Yay!

Also happy to see you're getting on with your Christmas cards without me having to remind you. ;-)
Great job on keeping it simple yet fun.

Yet another beautiful card. I love your colouring. In still haven't quite got the hang of blending.

Loving your Etsy store. Once you are up and running you should look at selling on heartizan too x

You are doing extremely well with your Christmas cards! I love this adorable little angel and her cloudy background. The rectangular frame is perfect for the little scene. You are right, it really saves a lot of time to get everything ready before hand and die cut and then you can simply enjoy the colouring and putting together. Enjoyed your video :) xxx
