Thank You Cards by Jemma

Have you finished all the left-over turkey yet?  Eaten all the chocolates?  Found the cat/dog/baby beneath all the discarded wrapping paper?  After the Yuletide excesses of eating, drinking and gifting comes the task of saying “Thank you”!  I was brought up to hand-write letters to thank for my Christmas treats although my children prefer to e-mail (which can be rapidly edited to tailor it for the next recipient) or simply phone.  However, I still like to send (and receive) thank you notes.  With this in mind I wanted to add interest this year by making some super-quick cards with my scrapping supplies.


This card is really easy to do - just die-cut some card letters and add to a piece of folded card for a faux dry-embossed look.  [Inspired via Pinterest - here]


Or how about some tags from scraps with stickers or stamps to express your gratitude? [Inspired via Pinterest - here]  It’s also a great way to use up scraps of Christmassy patterned papers:


If you need to mass-produce some cards and have a colour printer there are plenty of resources available, including these lovely cheerful designs by Creativemama:



Or create something yourself with an on-line tool like Tagxedo:


Pop over to my blog if you want to know how I produced my word-art!

Thank you for stopping by!

  6. I adore the rainbow colored thanks card. What is it that you used to "fasten" the tags to the card? Are those buttons of some sort? And where did you get them? Thanks

  7. Kristi - the centre tag has a brad and the others have shaped eyelets (ancient stash) that either matched or were coloured with Sharpies - all were applied to the tags first and then the tags were simply glued to the card.
