for Your Guest after the Graduation Party

I have a friend who always writes thank you cards for everything. She has her kids write thank you cards too for all their birthday presents, Christmas gifts, and everything in between. Since it's graduation season, we thought it'd be nice to set you guys up with and send those thank you cards out this year! Since you'll have to make quite a few (ok, a lot), it'll be super easy and quick.

Here's what you're going to need...
  • 5"x 7" Cards
  • 5"x 7" Envelopes
  • Card Stock - 2 Colors/Prints
  • 1/4" Double Sided Tape
  • Fiskars Paper Trimmer
  • We R - ABC Punch Board (Or visit us in store for the Accucut Machine)
  • Alphabet Stamps (Sizix's Lynda Kanase - Alphabet Stamp Set, $12.99, as seen)
  • Clear Acrylic Stamp Block
  • Any Graduation Stamp
  • Black, Gold or Silver Metallic Stamp Pad
**If you want to pre-print out your special greeting inside the card, do so before decorating.**

All you have to do is trim you card stock down (with your paper trimmer) to 6.5"x 4.5" and center it on the front of the blank card with your double sided tape. Then with your second color cardstock and alphabet punch board, make a bunch of U's for every card and with your double sided tape, place it in the bottom right corner. If you haven't picked up a alphabet punch board yet, each Ben Franklin's Craft has an Accucut Machine with some preselected fonts and sizes that you can use. It is free to use, as long as the paper was purchased within a Ben Franklin's Craft store. Now go ahead and set up your alphabet stamp to spell out "THANK', but backwards onto your clear acrylic stamping block. Stamp it onto your desired color ink pad and place your stamp at the top right of your U. Continue decorating with your other graduation stamps on the front, or if you'd like, on the inside too.

And what's nice about this stamp set from Sizix's is that it also comes with a "To" and "From" stamp. Perfect for the outside of your envelope to mail!

If you'd like to add a more personalized touch, pick up an envelope punch board by WE R. Choose an extra 12"x 12" color cardstock since the dimensions required for a 5"x 7" card is a 9.5"x 9.5".

Thank you for Crafting with KrazyGoo!
