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 🙂
