Merry and Bright

Today I'm previewing a new set from My Favorite Things called "Merry and Bright" it is a great all purpose holiday set. In my humble opinion I think its fabulous for gift bags, gift tags, and even creating your own Christmas cards.

I've combined a sentiment from Merry and Bright along with the Die and Border from Polka Dot Greetings. Patterned paper from Crate Paper and I finished off the sentiment with a MFT Adornment for a little extra shine.

How about another one? The same paper pack, only a different pattern. I've reached for a go-to layout for me and added the sentiment to the top half of a circle, filling the bottom half with contrasting paper, and a Die-namic Let it Snowflake finished with a button and linen thread.

As you can see, either of these would be a fairly easy card to mass produce (okay minus the stitching it would be easy.) Spend one night trimming your papers, spend one night cutting all those circles, one night cutting snowflakes and then one night stamping the sentiment and assembling.

Now for those of you that are photo card senders, I've printed off a photo, and turned it sepia. This could work with *any* patterned paper since I've stripped the color from the photo. I went with an all chocolate theme for my card. With just a bit of ribbon, and a *quick* single stitch, I've got a classicly clean Christmas card. No bulky embellishments - and thus no extra postage. I also went for a standard A2 card. When you're mass producing, you want to stick to the basics.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at a few different projects with this handy set! Be sure to stop by Kim's blog today after 11 am for a full list of designers that will be participating in previews today!
