No Thank you Cards… No Problem - thanks to Kreate-A-Lope
with Sin City Stamps
We had a last minute mini-birthday get together for my son and his friends.
My baby is growing up - 14…
I wanted to get thank you cards out to his friends for his gifts.
Of course I didn't have any thank you cards…. what to do..
Sin City Stamps to the rescue….
In my goody package was this card template. - and this month cross promotion.
Now you know how new things scare me so of course I put it to the side of my desk.
Then… enters… You Tube.
Green Sneakers has a cute youtube video
They make it look so easy….. No way it can be this easy… right?
So here's the process I pulled out different patterned paper (used whatever you like)
You put the template right on the paper - and just pull to tear.
And magic…. it's so simple.. I don't tear very well - so I did use scissor to trim - HINT: If you hold down "a bit firm" it teared the paper clean. By the last one I had it down perfect.
Then you just fold it over… I didn't even use a bone folder it really is that easy.
Put a little glue on it - and the envelop is made… I keep saying this - but it's that easy...
Then pulled out my favorite sin city stamps…
Below are different versions… Did some hand drawing inside some of them.
Now the next step I did.. I used the "window" template and teared off that side for the "card".
Here's the 4 cards I made.
I hope you enjoy… please go out and get this template - it's super easy - and for that last minute card - or invitations nothing better than a hand made for that extra special touch.
