How to Create Simple & Attractive Thank You Cards

Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Who doesn’t need thank you cards in their stash? It seems I always need these! The cards I’m sharing with you today are quick and easy, and feature Basis cardstock in gorgeous colors and beautiful soft texture!

I worked in an assembly-line fashion, cutting all the card bases and front layering panels from Basis Grey cardstock, Basis Green cardstock, Basis Light Yellow cardstock, and Basis Teal cardstock. Then I cut four slightly larger layering panels, four 3/4″ strips to go across the card fronts, and four plain inside panels from Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock. The Basis Green set is shown in this photo.

I adhered the layering panels together, leaving just a tad of the ivory cardstock showing. I applied 5/8″ floral Washi Tape to the strips and adhered the pieces horizontally across the layering panels.

I stamped the sentiment four times in black ink and punched each with a circle punch, then layered each one on a slightly larger circle punched from the same colored cardstock. I stamped the inside sentiment in black ink on each of the interior panels embellished with a strip of the floral Washi Tape.

I adhered the layering panels to each of the card bases, then the circular sentiments, and then the inside panels. These are so clean and simple that I didn’t add any embellishments!
