Quick and Easy Holiday Cards with Steph Ackerman

Hey everyone, Steph here today.  Did you know you can use your Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy to create quick and easy cards in no time at all.

This Z fold card was created by cutting a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" Kraft cardstock in half lengthwise creating two panels, each 4 1/4" x 11". With the long edge against the top of your Scor-pal, score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". 

Accordian fold creating a Z shaped card.

Now, decorate as desired.

I cut a panel of red sparkly cardstock for the bottom of the card - cutting it 5 1/4" x 4 1/8". Then I stamped a sentiment on white cardstock with black ink.

For the top panel, I cut white and silver cardstock rectangles, adhering the left half to the Z fold, being certain that the sentiment did not show. On top of this I added a Sizzix die cut Christmas Tree which was decorated with Stickles. To finish the card, a ribbon was tied to the left side. 

These are definitely quick cards to make. If you need a large number of cards, consider creating an assembly line format and your cards will be done in no time at all.
