I needed to make some thank you cards for Austin's 2nd birthday party guests, and I wanted to do them fairly quickly but still make them look pretty. The Project Life Cobalt Edition paper (which is no longer available) was perfect for my card bases, as it is bright and fun and double-sided.
I first cut my paper to 8.5" x 5.5" strips, and then used my Martha Stewart mini scoreboard to score them at 4.25".
I folded the card in half and used this EK Success border punch to punch a scalloped border on the front of the card.
Next I attached a white card cut to 3.25" x 5.25" to the inside of the card.
And I rounded the corners using my favorite corner punch.
For the front, I wanted a little "thank you" decoration without it being too busy. I opted to stamp the thank you using the Pretty Petites stamp set (a special set from Sale-A-Bration) and both the Curly Label punch and Petite Curly Label punches.
I used the Curly Label punch to punch a layer of Midnight Muse card stock.
And then I used Raspberry Ripple ink to stamp my sentiment.
Then I punched the sentiment out with the Petite Curly Label punch.
I used a foam square to attach the layers together and then adhered them to the front of the card.
That's all there was to it! I think they came out really cute!
Do any of you use the Project Life paper to make your own cards? I'd love to see them if you do!
