I found these boxes of "Thank You" cards on clearance at Target... 50 cards and envelopes for $2.50. What a deal! I bought them.
Only problem is they bored me to tears.
With one ink pad and a few rubber stamps, I had a whole new set of cards! It sure made for a fun, easy craft idea.
To accompany the gold lettering, I figured a mustard-ish yellow-ish ink would look good (later I toyed with reds and greens and those looked classy too).
All I had to do on this one is stamp a flower over the top.
And of course you must stamp the envelope too! That makes it a complete set.
This one was two stamps and a sponge. I simply pressed the sponge on the ink pad like it was a stamp and dabbed it around the words and then add the other stamps.
The next one used the sponge technique (you can also use a rag for texture) and the simple star stamp.
Of course, I couldn't leave the back of the cards bare! People want to feel worthy of a Halmark card, so I always use my own Halmark-style logo... although I try to make it match the card.
And there you have it! Bunches of boring cards turned into classy notes worthy of a wedding gift! Of course, if you're giving the gift then THEY should be the ones to send YOU the thank-you card. :)
