how to craft easy thank you cards


thank you cards for fall

This is the plan: to bring you a card inspo each week. Friday Card Inspo.
Because of one the words that just keeps playing over and over in my mind like a broken brain record:

Those of us tapped into our creativity can create connection many ways. Just one of those ways to is use our creativity to reach out and let someone else know we are thinking of them.

And a way to do just that is with DIY card creations.
I hope to show you these pretty fallish cards and how to craft them in an effort to inspire you to connect with someone else. 
You have the power to make today better for someone else.

I recently picked up some new tools from The Stamp Market. I am a huge fan of that stamp and die shop and I think you should be too.


Using the new to me Skinny Upper Alpha Die set, I am at work using this die set in all the places.

Placing the letter dies on the card form to spell THANKS, I cut them out so that I would have a negative space to fill with background paper.

For the rest of the card I used this Lots of Leaves stamp set which will for sure be a fall perennial favorite to add to many of my paper crafts here.

After the paper was in place, I stamped the leaves from the Lots Of Leaves Stamp set. The leaves were embossed with white embossing power. Then I watercolored in the color to compliment the background paper.

The positive cuts from the Skinny Upper Alpha were used for this card.

As was the Lots Of Leaves leaf die. I placed the die in a variation and cut each one in place through my die cutting machine. These open negative spaces were also filled with the background paper.
Using the same white background. The same dies: Skinny Upper Alpha plus the Lots of Leaves die and stamp, I quickly punched out two cards on a variation. My favorite way to craft cards. Cause I always need more than one.

Grab these supplies. And start crafting up a fall frenzie. And join me here next time for another Card Tutorial.
