These are the thank you cards from my son’s birthday. I needed to make something that fast and easy to make.
Close up of one card
All six cards in the set
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 cards
Extra Details: I started by cutting some strips of patterned paper. The paper is from a Die Cuts With a View Halloween paper pack. I cut the strips to be 2.5” x 5.5”. I added some stitching detail to the edges with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders Dies.
I also cut a strip of black card stock for each card. This strip of was 3” x 5.5”. I dry embossed these strips with a dotted embossing folder by Darice. I layered the patterned paper strip on the top of the black strip. Next, I adhered the strips to the white card bases.
I made the sentiment strips next. I stamped the Thanks in black ink. I used three colors of Distress Inks to add color to my sentiment banners. I cut in a fish tail end on each banner and attached them to the cards. As a finishing touch I colored parts of the letters in with a white gel pen.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s A Good Apple
Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Borders
Ink: Versa Fine
Distress Inks in Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet, and Twisted Citron
Hope you enjoyed the cards
