Thank You Cards

I always end up with a few paper scraps from every line I use. A great way to use up those scraps is to put together some simple cards. Sometimes all you need to add is a simple sentiment that you can stamp yourself. Keeping cards “flat” can save you on postage, too! You can create a simple card using scraps left over from any supply from Scrappin’ {Sports} Stuff.
  1. 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″.
  2. Select a patterned paper and trim pattern down to 5-1/4″x3-3/4″ and adhere it to front of card. (I inked edges before adhering.)
  3. Trim 1-1/2″x3-3/4″ strip of a coordinating pattern, ink edges and adhere along left edge of base pattern.
  4. Stamp sentiment on kraft paper and cut down to banner/flag shape. Adhere overlapping both patterns as shown. (For my card, I used clear embossing powder over ink after stamping and heat embossed  the sentiment before adhering.)
