Card of the Week: Five Thank You Cards from One Piece of Patterned Paper

I made these 5 thank you cards from one $0.10 sheet of patterned paper.

{1 $0.10 sheet of patterned paper = 5 adorable thank you cards}

Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Recollections; Cardstock: Bazzill; Thank-You Rub-Ons: Pebbles Inc.; Flower Rub-Ons: Cosmo Cricket; Brads: American Crafts, Making Memories; Ribbon: my craft stash; Doodleing: Inkssentials Opaque Pen (white); Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives

The patterned paper that I used looked like a quilt; each pattern seen on the cards was a block from the original sheet.  

I cut the blocks apart, matted them, layered them on my card base, and added the sentiments and embellishments.  

I found coordinating cardstock by looking in my scraps, and all the rub-ons, and ribbon I already had in my stash of supplies.   

For $0.10 I made five adorable and simple thank you cards.    

Sure beats those little packages of 8-10 thank you cards that you buy at the store for between $7 and $10 a package.  

What do you think?


  1. These cards are beautiful and it is so nice to receive a hand made card. It makes you feel so much more appreciated somehow.

    1. Thank you so much...making people feel extra appreciated and loved is something I always hope for when I give a handmade card.
