Frightening Feline Tutorial - How to Mass Produce Cards

I just love Halloween and all the cute and fun and not-so-scary things about it. This Frightening Feline stamp set is in the Holiday catalog. I loved it when I first saw it but thought that I didn't need another Halloween stamp set, but I couldn't resist and HAD to have it! AND I'm TOTALLY loving the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP from the Holiday Catalog. I'm having a hard time figuring out which paper to use because I love them all!

I came across this sketch on Freshly Made Sketches and knew right away what I was going to do! I flipped it and couldn't get the flags to work on the top with everything else so I opted to just have a small amount on the bottom. What do you think of this card? I love it but almost think the kitty needs something - eyes - a collar...any ideas?

I was making this card for a monthly card swap I was in and have been meaning to make a tutorial on mass-producing cards, so I finally did it! If you would like the free tutorial - CLICK HERE! The instructions can be used to make 1 or many of the same card. The trick to mass producing is to work assembly line style - rather than one card at a time....it makes a HUGE difference. I've made 40-50 at a time for swaps and then at Christmas time I usually make about 10-15 of each style of card for a total of about 60 or more depending one what I'm doing!

Enjoy! If you have any questions or would like to place an order please let me know - I'm happy to help.
