Quick and Easy Thank You Cards!

These quick and easy thank you cards are great to have on hand!  My kids and I made these for Christmas to thank all the various nana/papas and uncles and aunts that they got gifts from.  Now that they are old enough to appreciate said gifts, they will be taught that gift giving is something they don’t automatically get…if you don’t give thanks to those who have given you gifts, you may not get any more!

Well, not realllllly, but its good practice right?  My oldest (4.5) loves to write his name so he was stoked that he got to “sign” his cards.  He even made one for me!

That’s supposed to be “mama” but he’s still learning how to write from left to write.

The best part about these cards is that you can use any pretty paper!  All you need is some coordinating solid cardstock for the card base, and either Whisper White or Very Vanilla for the part that gets stamped!

stampin up all things thanks. Stampin up delicate details.

Begin by cutting your pretty papers (I used the Affectionately Yours pack) into 4 x 1/2″ by 3 x 1/4″ rectangles.  Then, using Whisper White or Very Vanilla, cut that into 4 x 1/4″ by 3″ rectangles.  To make these cards, I used the All Things Thanks clear mounted stamp set with Watermelon Wonder and Crumb Cake inks.  Those are inks that coordinate with the Affectionately Yours paper, so you don’t even need to guess which colors to use!  The accent stamps are a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Delicate Details, and oh, how I love this stamp set!  Its perfect for adding just a touch of something to an otherwise plain card.  To finish, but adhere your 2 pieces together and glue them onto your card base!  I used some Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape to give it a little sparkle.  That’s it!  You can make so many of these cards in very little time, with just switching your colors or paper!
