I have been needing A LOT of Thank You cards lately, and the other day I needed some made up quickly. I wanted nice looking cards without spending a lot of time making them. I decided on a design and tried a trick to make it go a little bit faster.
I started off with my small letter stamps. Instead of trying to hold them all together each time to stamp the “thank” and the “you,” I decided to make it faster. Using regular scotch tape, I taped the letters together to make a whole stamp. This made stamping several in a row a whole lot easier. I can easily take it apart if I need the letters for something else.
I made up ten of these small pieces of cardstock to say “thank you” and could have made several more to keep on hand for another time if I had wanted to.
I made sure I had enough colored cardstock ready for the basic card. If you have 8.5″x11″ paper, all you have to do is cut it in half (5.5″ on the 11″ side). If you have 12″x12″ paper, cut it down to 8.5″x11″ and then cut it in half. You’ll have extra paper that can be used for other projects. Fold the paper in half and you have a basic card size.
I cut down some of the gelli printed paper that the kids and I had made to use as the background of my card (You could use whatever patterned scrapbook paper you have on hand to match your card). To fit on your basic card size with a small border, cut your paper 5.25″x4″.
I added my piece of cardstock with the “thank you” stamped on and drew a little border with colored pencil.
Very soon I had ten Thank You cards ready to write in and send.
