Quick and Easy Last Minute Christmas Cards from Stampin Up: Watercolour Christmas Project Kit

Hey there lovelies.

Time gets away from us quickly doesn't it? Here we are in early November with just a few weeks before we want to be sending our Christmas Cards.  Panicking? How about if I told you I had a solution for you that could make 20 great Christmas cards in an afternoon?

Enter the Watercolour Christmas project kit!

Card kit group

 

This kit contains the cards, gold foiled lined envelopes, embellishments and die cuts you need to make 20 beautiful Christmas cards in Pool Party, Real Red, Emerald Envy and Whisper White, They have a real watercolour feel to the design which is so on trend right now. I have 3 different options for you starting at just $35 plus postage and handling of $5,95.

 

Basic Option 1: Purchase the 20 card kit and use your existing stamps for greetings. 

Cost: $35.00 plus $5.95 postage for 20 cards with envelopes, That's just $1.75 per card or $2.05 including postage. If you buy an additional 1-2 sets you don't pay any more postage either, so the cost comes down to $1.90 per card (including postage) for 40 cards and $1.85 per card for 60 cards (including postage). 

Purchase link to purchase in my online store: Watercolor Christmas Project Kit. If you shop online, don't forget to use the November Hostess Code which is UJ4GZN4V. Orders can also be placed by phone or email.

You supply: Stamps from your existing Christmas sets for the greetings. You will also need to supply your own black ink, plus some adhesive (I used Snail, plus some tape for the sequin trim and Dimensionals)  to create 5 each of the four basic designs (shown in the second image, but with your own sentiments exchanged for the ones I have used). There's also a stepped up option available below. Here's what you will get in option 1:

Kit 1

Kit 2

 

Basic Option 2: Purchase the coordinating Watercolor Christmas stamp set in addition to  your 20 card kit.

Cost: $66.00 for one kit / clear mount stamp set plus postage of $5.95. If you buy 1 additional card kits to make 40 cards, you don't pay any additional postage and you only need the one stamp set, so your cost comes down to $2.67 per card. If you buy 2 additonal kits to make 60 cards you only pay an additional $0.85 postage, which brings the cost per card down to $2.38.

Purchase links to purchase in my online store : Watercolour Christmas Project Kit and Watercolour Christmas Clear Mount stamp set. If you shop online, don't forget to use the November Hostess Code which is UJ4GZN4V. Orders can also be placed by phone or email.

You supply: Black ink pad (either Memento, Black Archival or Stazon will work fine), acrylic blocks if you have the clear mount set (suggested ones are b,c,d), adhesive (I used Snail, plus some tape for the sequin trim and Dimensionals) to create 5 each of the 4 designs shown.

Want to Step it Up?

By adding just a couple of products (a packet of Foil Snowflakes and a packet of Metallic Enamel Shapes) you can step the designs of the cards up a little to add some more bling! Here's a sample of each card with the basic design on the left, and the stepped up version on the right. Below the photos you will find the costing and links for Option 1 and Option 2 stepped up versions.
