Mini Thank You Cards

5 Comments

Hello everyone & thank you for joining me.  I know text messaging is all the rage, but we stampers know the value of an actual card!  These would work for kids to hand to a friend.  Maybe I’m dreaming–LOL!

Here are the simple instructions to get this look.  Begin by heat embossing the graphic background stamp (ON SALE in the a2z store) & cut into 2 small panels.  Don’t forget to hit the edges with your heat gun to reseal the embossing. Then add circles of colored ink using a foam dauber.  IMPORTANT:  Blot the ink to remove it from the embossing & prevent smearing.  Make mini cards (2 3/4 x 4) & use the same ink to color a strip to fit on the left side of the card.  Attach the strip & the embossed panel to the card front.  Next stamp the sentiment to match, trim it into a banner & attach it with foam tape toward the bottom.

If the card is for a girl, add a bit of bling with some enamel dots or gems.  You could make these with a lot of background stamps, sentiments & colors–whatever you like!  Hope I’ve inspired you to join our Color It In challenge.  The winner gets a $25 gift certificate to the a2z store.  Be sure to check the sale section for some great deals including the stamps & red ink I used for my cards.  You can use the code GRETA15 for 15% off a minimum $25 purchase.
