Have you ever explored the paper crafts section at your local Big Lots! store? They have a “big lot” of paper, stamps and stickers to choose from. I found a brightly colored paper pack with fun stripes, adorable birds and flowers and it seemed like the right kind of paper to use for these two summertime thank you cards. The paper pack even came with several different shimmery alphabet stickers!
Have I mentioned my trick for how to get three card bases out of one 12″ x 12″ sheet of card stock? With only two cuts (one at 4″ and one at 8″) you can make three cards that will be 4″ x 6″ and you won’t have any left over card stock to add to your pile of scraps. It’s nice to have a larger surface space for embellishing the card and a larger area to write in inside.
With just a few simple embellishments, my cards were complete!
“Thanx” for reading my blog. 🙂
