My son is currently working on his Eagle Project and needed to send thank you cards to those that contributed financially toward his project. Instead of purchasing store bought cards, I pulled out some kraft paper, a “thank you” stamp and my K & Co. Boy Scouts Adventure Designer Paper Pad. I was able to quickly make enough cards for my son to send.
8-1/2″x11″ Kraft paper (or pre-made cards)
“thank you” stamp
(optional) clear embossing powder
- Trim your 8-1/2″ x 11″ kraft paper down to 8″ x 5-1/2″ and fold down to 4″ x 5-1/2″.
- Select a pattern from the K & Co – Boy Scouts Adventure Designer Paper Pad. I selected the fleur-de-lis pattern. For a card with the fold at the top, trim pattern down to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhere it to front of card. (I inked edges before adhering.)
- Trim 1″x4″ strips of a coordinating pattern, ink edges and adhere across lower half of card.
- Stamp sentiment on kraft paper and cut down to banner/flag shape. Adhere overlapping both patterns as shown along left or right edge of card. (For my card, I used clear embossing powder over ink after stamping and heat embossed the sentiment before adhering.)
