Easy to Make a "Thanks for Everything" Homemade Card

A Thank You card is always appreciated and enjoyed. Why buy a card from the store when you can easily and quickly create a special and memorable homemade greeting card. The recipient will appreciate the time and thought you put into the card as well as the fact that it is a card thanking them for something they did for you.

The Cricut personal cutting machine along with some beautiful stamps from Stampin'Up allows me to make very easy and special cards for friends and family. The personal touch is always noted.

Step by Step

For your base card: Cut one piece of heavy weight cardstock to be 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"

For your background cardstock: Cut one piece of carstock to be 5 1/4" x 4".

Adhere the cardstock to the card.

Thank You mats:

Cut one <folder>, pg 70, size 1 3/4" using the Tag and Base keyboard keys. This will cutout the largest mat for your phrase.

Cut one <folder>, pg 70, size 1 1/2" using the Tag and Base keyboard keys. This will cutout the second largest mat for your phrase.

Cut one <folder>, pg 70, size 1 1/4" using the Tag and Base keyboard keys. This will cutout the third largest mat for your phrase.

Cut one <folder>, pg 70, size 1" using the Tag and Base keyboard keys. This will cutout the fourth and smallest mat for your phrase.

I used white and blue pieces of cardstock for my mats. On the white pieces of cardstock I used the Stampin'Up! "Sweet Swirls" Stampin'Around Roller pattern. To be honest it is the only one I own but there are so many to choose from to create great patterned paper out of plain cardstock.

Adhere the layered and stamped mats to the card, starting with the largest on the bottom and the smallest on top.

Stamp "Thanks for Everything" on the top white piece of cardstock. This stamp is from the "For Everything" collection by Stampin'Up!.

Add a pretty off-white cornflower in the top right corner to embellish.

Done!
