Hello, everyone! This is Allison G in TX, your new Midweek Throwdown hostess! Didn’t you just love the OWH Birthday Fun in September with all of the wonderful sponsors?! Now it’s time to return you to your regularly scheduled programming, but that does NOT mean the fun is over. Oh no, it’s just beginning! Get ready because I have lots in store for you.
To start out the month of October, I asked Pam T. to share a card that is Easy to Make in Multiples. Why? Because if you are thinking of sending multiples of holiday cards to OWH, the deadline is October 15. This gives our shippers plenty of boxes to spread the love around. We don’t want to send all of one design to one contact – that wouldn’t be an exciting box of cards to receive, now would it?!
Why did I invite Pam to be the sample card maker for this challenge? In my opinion, she makes fabulous cards in multiples! I love her crisp, clean style. Take a look and I’m sure you’ll agree. Notice the winter theme – this card could be sent out beyond the Christmas card deadline. Love the versatility! The colors are wintry but still masculine, too.
Here’s a little about Pam’s creative process for making multiple cards…in her own words:
“When I sit down to make cards, whether it’s a single card or multiples, I usually always look for a sketch as my starting point. I make one card and if I like it, I then write down all the measurements and cut everything out as many times as cards I want to make. When everything is cut/punched/stamped, I then go about it as an assembly line putting certain layers all together.. like on one of the base layers, I would attach all the pattern papers to it, then move on to other layers. After I have all those layers together, I put the cards together as a whole. I do not make them one at a time, that would take way too much time and I find that doing it this way, makes it go a lot faster.”
Here are the measurements for Pam’s awesome card:

And….even Sandy got into the spirit of making multiples…and we all know how hard it is for her to make more than one. Check out today’s OWHtv with tips on setting up kits for cardmaking parties!
