Thank You Card

By Aileen Garcia

I love homemade thank you cards! You know why? Because making them doesn't require a lot from you. It can be the simplest of cards and still send the most genuine of thoughts – a “thank you”. You don’t have to be an expert card-maker to make one. You don’t have to have a lot of crafting materials, too. And of course, you don’t have to rush to Hallmark to get one either. Just whip out some papers, a little of your creativity, and loads of your emotional expressiveness and you’ll be able to come up with a than-you card. And I’m sure anyone will be happy to receive it!

Here are the materials you’re going to need to make this simple card:

  • White cardstock
  • Brown craft cardstock
  • Ribbon (yellow gold)
  • Ink pad (yellow gold)
  • Corner chomper
  • Flower stamp
  • Sentiment stamp
  • Embossing folder
  • Embossing machine
  • Gluey tape
  • Foam tapes
  • Sponge dauber


  • Gather all your supplies and materials.
  • To make an A2 card, cut an 8.5 x 5.5 in cardstock. Score in half.
  • Cut a piece slightly smaller than the white cardstock using the brown kraft card.
  • Run this sheet in your embossing machine. I chose a pattern of dots.
  • Afterwards, adhere the embossed kraft card onto the front of the white card stock.
  • Then, adhere the ribbon around the center.
  • For the sentiment, using some leftover white cardstock, I stamped “thank you” and a flower.

  • Cut out and then chomp the corners of this small piece of cardstock.
  • Using the same ink used for stamping, I inked the edges of the small cardstock using a sponge dauber.
  • When this is ready, put some foam tapes at the back of the sentiment.
  • Adhere onto the center of the card, overlapping the ribbon.
