Recently, I’ve found myself having a chronic case of “ain’t nobody got time for that.” I see all these beautiful handmade holiday cards and projects and all I can think is how much time it would take me to replicate it – and I give up before I even start. I am all about the quick and easy.

The cards in today’s post are totally quick and completely easy to make – and for all you people out there who plan on sending holiday cards to all 4,325 of your Facebook friends – these designs are also mass produceable. Each card also features baker’s twine, which adds a quick bit of dimension to each card without much work at all. If you are in need of a few extra spools, be sure to visit www.bakersstock.com where all my readers get 50% off their baker’s twine order by using the code: TWINE50.

Let’s get to the card, shall we – because when it comes to reading my ramblings…well…ain’t nobody got time for that either.

Me thinks this is my favorite quick  & easy card. It uses one stamp set only, which cuts down on cost and makes it so very easy to mass produce. The scribbly images from the stamp set are also really easy to color – since you don’t really have to be precise. You also don’t need to color in every simple image. Just select a few and leave the other’s blank. A little twine bow on top is easy but adds just the right about of …sumthin.

INSTRUCTIONS

Arrange the images directly onto the card front to get an idea of what layout you like • press a stamp press over your arranged images • ink up the stamps and stamp onto the card • color the images to your liking • tie o a twine bow

 This card might take you a little longer…5 minutes maybe. There is some cutting involved but really not difficult. If you follow THIS tutorial on creating a paper punch peppermint, you’re all set. I added some die cut letters to the peppermint and stamped the rest. Not tough at all.

  1. Adorable cards especially with the baker’s twine. Using one stamp set is right up my alley. I always make quick cards for the majority because they’ll probably get tossed after the holidays.

  2. Love the joy to the world! I love my glitter pens too but find that sometimes the glitter all gets stuck in the tip part – and I end up having to twist it off, wash it out with a toothpick, etc. Do you find that problem as well? Is it because I don’t use them often enough and they get clogged up? Would appreciate your advice; I love your blog! Thanks

  3. I know I’m not alone in thinking that what you write in your project lead-ins are as clever and fun as the projects themselves.

  4. As much as I love the over-the-top greeting cards, I totally appreciate the clean & simple cards for the Holidays — especially when I’m short on time and have many friends & family to send cards to. Thanks for these sweet ideas!

  5. I LOVE these cards! Simpler is better and it looks cuter too!
    I just noticed that I haven’t been getting your updates! How come?

  6. Love that Christmas scribbles stamp set! Love that glittery peppermint! And how could a person survive without Baker’s twine?
