In the spirit of the season, handmade thank you cards are a wonderful way to express gratitude. And in the hustle and bustle of the season, I took some shortcuts that made the process of making thank you cards a little easier!
I started with precut and pre-scored 4-bar (A1 size) cards. I’ve recently discovered the beauty of 4-bar sized cards… still a great size to add my handcrafted touch, but a bit smaller than an A2 size card, so it feels like less work. For bulk production cards, or just having a bunch of card bases in my stash, this is my new go-to! With the blank cards already scored, I get the perfect fold every time. (Cards ship flat, then I just fold on the score line when I’m ready to make a card.)
I stamped this awesome plaid background in some festive colors onto Neenah Solar White cardstock, and even added some gold embossing to jazz it up a little bit. Then, I trimmed down the stamped backgrounds to fit just the way I wanted them to on the fronts of the 4-bar cards.
