Thank You Card Set

All newly weds need to send out Thank You cards so I made this set of cards as a gift for our June bride Nikki and her prince charming Chris.

This set of six cards, two of each color, is all about fast and using scraps. I did this assembly line fashion. I printed the Thank Yous on Word cut to size, rounded the corners and attached to card base. I cut strips of scrap card stock and attached them to card fronts. I used a MS punch for a little green and an EK Success punch for some sweet little flowers. A dot of Crayola glitter glue on each flower center and a rhinestone at the opposite end of each strip of cardstock and they’re done.

To create this little card portfolio I used a template from Mirkwood designs at

An EF in my Cuttlebug created the background.  I cut the ovals with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large and Classic Ovals Large. Repeat the flowers used on the cards an a little banner printed on Word. All tied up with a pretty white Organdy ribbon.

‘Cheap Trick’ for today is to use your scarps in your printer. Simply tape your scrap of card stock to the top edge of a sheet of printer paper with some low tack double sided tape and print. Taping card stock to card stock can get caught up the printer. Ask me how I know. Using printer paper lined up with the top edge always works best for me.

Thanks for coming to visit. I’d appreciate it if you leave me a comment.

Have an Amazing Day!
