On the right, you can see the cards I designed for this year which I copied on my scanner. On the left, which I removed from the rings for this photo, is the list of names: 50 friends and family on the left and 50 Silver Stampers on the right. In the lower right there is a "key" used to record who got what card. (Click on photo for a closer look.)
This list is stored in my computer so that next year, I can reprint it (with any changes and additions) and repeat the process. I hope this gives you some ideas on how to keep track of what cards you've made in the past and who got which one. It's also like a trip down memory lane whenever I look at the cards I've made over the past ten years!

I can't believe she's now sweet 16--where do those years go?
Anyway, since I couldn't fit 16 candles on this card, I tilted the flame on this one as though it were being blown out. The "sweet" was hand printed on the leaf, after which I discovered a small stamp in one of my other sets with that word...duh...
The final touch was the strip of "lace" on the top of the white panel where I thought there was a little too much empty space. Once I was satisfied that it was done, I mounted the white panel over the striped dsp.

Using the Christmas star die really helped it to go fast. I attached it with a SU dimensional after silver embossing the message. Doing cards "assembly line" style is what works best!

I hope you can see the shine on this one--I used Wink of Stella over the leaves and berries.
It truly is challenging to use 2 other media in addition to stamping. However, on some of the other tags I made (to use on Christmas gifts) I've enjoyed being able to use larger embellishments that wouldn't go through the mail on a card.

I started with the leaf ef and the scalloped frame as my base. Instead of flowers, I used a few leaves and acorns for a Fall theme. Although I also liked her larger verse, I chose a small oval one instead.
Thanks for such a lovely card, Kim!
