I am back with a super cute and easy square thank you card! It seems like I can never have enough thank you or birthday cards. This is something you can whip up really quickly and is perfect for assembly-card-making. It's also really simple to change out the sentiment.
- Cut your white cardstock to 4" x 8". Fold in half, making the card a square at 4" x 4".
- Die cut a banner using white cardstock. Stamp the sentiment using a teal blue ink onto the die cut banner.
- Figure out where you want the banner with the stamped sentiment. This is important as it will serve as a focal point and a placeholder to stamp the additional, identical sentiments above and below the banner. Line up the straight edge of the banner with the edge of the card. Adhere onto card front. **Before you do this, make sure to adhere a thin piece of ribbon that coordinates with your stamped sentiment under the flag/pennant side of the diecut, making sure to extend the ribbon a little past the ends of your banner points. Again, this is to bring more attention to your focal point.**
- Once the banner is adhered, stamp the same "thank you" 3 times above the banner and once below in a pink stamp ink.
- Using a standard size single hole punch, punch small circles out of a coordinating pink cardstock. (Mine matched, as I was using Stampin' UP! products.)
- Sprinkle and adhere those punched circles in the opposite corner of your stamping.
- Using a similar size solid circle stamp as your cardstock circles, stamp a few circles in the same corner with a teal blue stamp ink. Make it a little haphazard or confetti-like.
- Envelope: Make using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board-follow the measurements for an envelope that will hold a 4" x 4" card. I used the same color pink cardstock I used on the card.
- Envelope Liner: Using the same technique in last week's tutorial, I made the white envelope liner. That tutorial can be found here. On the envelope liner, I used the small solid circle stamp to stamp the confetti look in both the pink and teal blue found on the card.
Next week sometime, I will be posting a picture tutorial on using the envelope punch board to make an envelope and envelope liner. Stay tuned for that!
So, there you have it. I quick and simple thank you card! I do have to say, I really enjoy this square size. I will definitely be making more square cards. Too bad that weren't such a hassle to mail though. Won't stop me from making someone's day with pretty happy mail!
