Quickie Cards

Em's Thank You Cards

I whipped these up while watching Steven Colbert. They're for E to use in order to thank those who gave her gifts for her birthday. I'm totally in love with my corner rounder.

8.5"x11" White Cardstock (for card base)
DCWV floral pattern paper from the summer stack of 2006
Pink Bazzil textured paper
Dark Perfect Plum ColorMates cardstock
EK Success corner rounder
Memory Maker's square punch double set in 11/4" and 1 1/2"
American Craft's Rub Ons Accessories Book Three in white

These cards are made by cutting the white cardstock in half either lengthwise or widthwise, depending on how you want them to stand. The tall card is lengthwise. I cut the floral strips exactly one inch wide and as long as the width of the card. Then I took the Square punch and, using the larger square, punched out the pink Bazzil paper. Using the smaller square I punched out the plum colored card stock. Then I took the corner rounders to the corners of the squares. I individually cut out the funky, handwritten thank you's from the AC's Accessory Book and rubbed them onto the plum colored rounded squares, then glued the plum squares to the pink squares. Next I glued the floral strip to the card and glued the sandwiched squares over the strip and onto the card. Ta da! All those words for a card that took me less time to make than describe.
