Today I wanted to share with you one of my recent paper craft projects- these fast, but fabulous, thank you cards.
With the exception of the “Thank You” I added on the inside of the card, this project needs no fancy die cut machine. Just a pair of scissors and a ruler (I used my Fiskars paper trimmer to save time.) Even a non-crafter can tackle this DIY.
A few simple layers and beautiful patterned card stock with foil really make this project stand out. These little cards are perfect for saying thanks- fast.
- Various card stock sheets (patterned, textured, and solid)
- Fiskars paper trimmer
- Double sided tape (or other adhesive)
- Adhesive foam squares (for adding dimension)
I was inspired by the gold foiled flower pattern
from this card stock stack!
Card stock dimensions-
Fold the large piece of card stock in half and adhere each square layer of card stock to the front with double sided tape. Next, choose a piece of card stock with a large pattern that is colorful, textured, or shiny (flowers with gold foil, in my case.) Hand cut around the pattern to make various pieces. Arrange the hand cut pieces as you like on the front of the card. If large enough, attach the pieces with a foam square in the center and double sided tape on the edges to give the cards a “pop up” effect. Write your thank you message inside the card.
And thats it. Really. You’re finished! 🙂
(I added some die cut letters on the inside, but that is totally optional.)
These cards are perfect for back to school, or for any other
casual occasion you may want to say “Thanks.”
