The other day I showed you a simple layout for a quick thank you card. I needed to make some thank you cards for my little boy’s recent birthday party so we made some together on the weekend.
As it was a rugby themed party of course we had to have rugby themed thank you notes – which means we definitely needed to use Wallabies colours!
These cards are so easy to make – cut an A4 piece of yellow card in 4 pieces to make the card backs. Fold a white A4 piece of card into 4 pieces then run it through the Big Shot with the Top Note die. Hey presto – 4 lovely white shapes for a message. A thank you stamp and you’re done.
Although in this case we weren’t quite done. Mr 4 wanted them to match his rugby party so we had to find a picture of a rugby ball! I cut and pasted from a web photo into a word document. I made the image the same size as the large oval punch so we could punch out the balls. Then a whole bunch of “copy and paste” and we had enough balls for all the cards. [Actually, most of the cards. We didn’t make quite enough so we had to decide which people weren’t big rugby fans to not get a ball! I didn’t have the heart to break it to him that most people would probably fall into that category!]
Anyway, about an hour and we were done. Perfect for a 4 year old attention span as well 🙂
