Austin's 2nd Birthday Thank You Cards


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!

  4. I literally JUST chopped up a clementine journalling card because I needed something plain to stamp my sentiment on and it was sitting right in front of me on my desk. It goes quite nicely with the other papers I used on the card. Thanks for sharing your project - it looks awesome!

  5. Really cute, I've got that same border punch but it's kinda finicky for me. Doesn't always punch clean even though I've followed the steps to try and fix it.
