I’d like to batch-make some Christ­mas cards. Any tips?

Sarah says:

Us­ing an in­tri­cate die is the per­fect way to make a whole batch of Christ­mas cards very quickly and eas­ily. The XCut Snow Cov­ered Vil­lage Large Die set is ideal as in just one run through a die-cut­ting ma­chine you have a com­plete Christ­mas vil­lage scene which is so de­tailed it needs very lit­tle in the way of em­bel­lish­ments. The die set also con­tains a rec­tan­gu­lar die so the scene can be die-cut evenly around the out­side edges ready for mat­ting and lay­er­ing. Die-cut the scene in your cho­sen coloured card, a dark colour works best, then layer on white card to re­ally show off the in­tri­cate de­sign. Layer the de­sign on con­trast­ing card, mirri board, or both then at­tach to a base. Fin­ish with a sen­ti­ment and sprin­kling of gems.
