Assembly Thank you cards

After the wonderful gifts my boys received for their graduation and birthday - I needed to be able to get these cards created for them to add a thought or two inside and get them in the mail!

I think it's important that young children write thank you cards in appreciation but that is my personal choice as a parent.

So last night I set out to create these.
I used an embossing folder from Stampin' Up called Square lattice and embossed the ivory blank note cards. To match their invitations, I sent out originally, I used the same purple card stock and Martha Stewart border punch to keep it all relative.

Glued them down to the base card - whew two steps done. (Look out carpel tunnel!)
Next step 3 and 4 was to stamp the Thank You sentiment and punch it out with the fancy label punch both from Stampin Up. Lastly - adhere the sentiment on the border so the point hits between the scallop on the border as seen above. 5 steps and 16 cards done in a little over an hour. Simple but elegant and effective! I have 5 more to create - but I am going to individualize those differently for a few folks.

Sheryl, you are right these are elegant cards. Simple, but very beautiful! Great work. (I agree it is good for children to learn not only gratitude but good manners! Blessings.
