Thanks Card Tutorial

Happy New Year Everyone!  I have enjoyed a little break and had some down time with my family and now I am ready to get going for the year.  I am excited to share a Thanks card that I made today with all of you.  I received some handwritten notes at Christmas from some friends and it reminded me how much I love notes/cards that someone has taken the time to write to me.  So one of my goals this year was to send more cards to friends/family.  To start the year off I made these Thanks cards so I thank some great family and friends for some wonderful Christmas Presents we received.

I love how it turned out and it was so easy to put together that my daughter Adison helped me make a bunch.  She has already written out several Thank you cards of her own!  Let me show you how easy they are to make!

1. Grab your supplies – Cards, White Cardstock, scrapbook paper, corner rounder, paper cutter, ink, letters (stamps or rubon), ribbon and adhesive.

2.  My cards are 4.5 ” x  5.5″ so I cut my white paper 4″ x 5″.  The strips of patterned paper (you will need 4 per card) are 1″ x 3.25″.

3.  Once paper is cut round the corners one one side of the strips of patterned paper.

4. Optional – but something I always do – Ink the edges of all of the papers.

5. Adhere the strips of patterned paper to the white cardstock.  Using a stamp, rubons or stickers put “Thanks” on the card.  Tie the ribbon onto the white card across the patterned paper strips.

    Card-making is seriously a DYING art, but I LOVE them. People do everything by facebook, email, etc, but I’m the same was as you – I love to make cards and I quickly forget how much fun it is. Thanks for getting me thinking again!!
