Paper Punch Thank You Card

Thank You CardsMost of the time we post recipes here on The PinterTest Kitchen, but this time my scrapbooking and card making is being featured. A few weeks weeks ago I needed some thank you cards. My husband had been in the  hospital a few times since November and he wanted to send the nurses thank you cards.

(Side note: Shout out to nurses – you guys are wonderful and often don’t get the thanks you deserve! The entire Boyer family says THANK YOU for all you do!)

I usually have a variety of homemade cards on hand but I had no thank you cards left. So I checked Pinterest for some ideas!

I repinned this card idea, which originally comes from Gretchen Clark’s {a little of this & that} Blog. I checked my supplies to see what I had available.

I had gotten a new punch on sale at a local craft store. Time to give it a try. I always save my scrap pieces of paper. I punched 3 different coordinating papers.

I cut a small piece of paper to stamp thank you on it. If you don’t have a stamp print it on your computer or hand write it, if you have nice handwriting!

I looked through my scraps of ribbon and found a piece to match the colors I picked.

I cut every thing to fit the blank card I had and started assembling the card. I have a Xyron Create-a-Sticker Machine with an adhesive cartridge in it which works better than a glue stick. Less messy, too.

I found some stickers to fill the black spaces and it was finished. You don’t have to run out and buy anything special. Just use what you have in your stash!
