Handmade Thank You Cards

May 31, 2010

Today is a rainy, gray day making it perfect for drinking a bit of tea and getting crafty. I needed to send out some thank you notes for early birthday gifts and opted to make my own rather than use the ones I have. I love making cards and I think people are more excited to get a card that you made yourself than a store-bought one, though any snail mail is nice to get these days. Making cards is pretty easy if you have some paper, pens and general supplies lying around. For the bike card, I cut out a piece of textured cardstock and placed some vellum over it. The picture is simply drawn on with colored pencil and small holes allow a ribbon to hold it together.

For this card, I used a premade card from the store and jazzed it up with a piece of vellum, again decorated with colored pencil.

Make someone’s day and send them a handmade card this week!
