Assembly line...

 This is the group of cards I chose to 'assembly line' for Christmas.  I don't usually repeat a design, but I must admit that at Christmas, I am always short on time.  This die cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs made it fabulously easy.
The top of each tier is glued flat to the background panel [recycled CS cuts that varied in size]  and the bottom of each is elevated with foam tape.  All the edges of the panels are distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and then mounted on the card base with a large rectangle of fun foam from the dollar store.  For just a touch of glitter I added a dot of gold glitter glue at the very top rather than a gem... gems on an elevated card front like this will poke a hole thru the envelope in mailing.  This saved me having to add thickness with a buffer and saved on postage.  I was able to whip out close to 40 in a reasonable time and will show you each of them here - [kidding!]

You can see some of the combinations of DP I used.  That, I think, is how I kept myself from going crazy with the repitition of the design!

  9. Well now aren't you the smart one!!! These are gorgeous. And yes, I know what you mean. I don't normally like to repeat designs, but Christmas calls for a different dynamic. In fact, it sometimes calls for crying, 'Uncle' and just buying some, which I broke down and did this year.
