Thank You Cards - With Freebie!

Updated: Jan 30, 2020

Hello! Today we are making some Thank You cards (well, actually they says "Thanks", but you get the idea). If you have a Cricut then you are also going to be treated to a freebie file with 4 different "Thanks" font cut-outs allowing you to make 8 cards from one piece of 8.5x11" piece of patterned cardstock!


For those of you without a Cricut, have no fear, we've got your back too! Below are material lists and instructions for some simple but beautiful thank you cards.


Easy 'Thank You' cards:


MATERIALS LIST:

- 2 pieces of 8.5x11" cardstock base (we used white) cut in half to measure 8.5x5.5" and then folded in half (to measure 5.5x4.25) to end up with 4 cards measuring 5.5x4.25


- 4 pieces of 5.25x4" (or slightly smaller if you choose to have more border showing, we will include an example) patterned cardstock. We used a foiled floral piece from The Paper Studios 'Tickle and Tweet', and a watercolored piece of cardstock we painted ourselves.


- Double-sided Scor-Tape (recommended) or glue of your choice.


- Marker or stamp to create the 'Thank you' sentiment


- Scrap pieces of white cardstock at least 1x3" for the sentiment


I like to do an assembly line of sorts when making multiple cards, meaning I will make all the card bases first:



Then cut out all of my patterned cardstock pieces to 5x3.75 or slightly smaller 4.5x3.25:


Make my sentiments using white scrap pieces from 1"x3" up to 2"x4":

Stamped as above, or handwritten as below:


Then I will attach the Scor-tape to the back of all of my pieces at once


And finally assemble:


For some super simple and easy Thank You cards!
