A cute handmade thank you card that just takes 5 minutes to create! It features pretty spring colors and rhinestone flower centers for added wow!  #stamping This yucky winter weather isn’t going to last forever, right? I think we can all use a little bit of springtime in our lives right now. So today I have a fun 5 minute card project so we can all make some cute spring-inspired handmade thank you cards. I know I can certainly use a reminder that warmer weather will be coming soon!

These handmade thank  you cards feature pretty pastel colors, a textured background, and popped up flowers with rhinestone centers.  One of these cards is sure to wow your recipient and it only takes about 5 minutes to make.

This card features the Stampin Up Petite Petals Stamp Set and Punch Combo.  I just love stamp sets that have coordinating punches.  Makes things go much faster than having to fussy cut each image!

Want to make one of these cute handmade cards?  Let’s get started!  (A complete materials list can be found at the end of this tutorial.)

You will need to start by cutting your cardstock.  For these thank you cards, I used pretty pastel colors (Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, and Blushing Bride).  As with any project though, feel free to use whatever colors you would like :)

Time Saving Tip:  For any card project, I find it easiest to do all my cutting right at the beginning.  It saves time to only use the trimmer once.

For the card base, cut a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock to 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score the cardstock at 4.25 inches and fold in half to form your card base.  So your card will be 4.25″ x 5.5″ in size.

For the card front, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4″ by 5.25″.

For the scalloped banner pieces, cut the following sizes from cardstock:

  • Wisteria Wonder – 1.25″ x 4″
  • Pool Party – 1.25″ x 3″
  • Blushing Bride – 1.25″ x 2″

Next you will need to stamp your “Thank You” sentiment in the lower right corner of your white cardstock.  The thank you stamp I used is from the So Very Grateful Stamp Set and it was stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink.

Now it is time to emboss the white cardstock.  I used my Big Shot to emboss the cardstock.  However,  but if you don’t want to invest in a die cut machine and you are only interested in embossing,  the new Texture Boutique machine is a much more affordable option.

Use Snail Adhesive to mount the white embossed cardstock to your card base.

Next, grab your Petite Petals stamp set and stamp the dot patterned flowers on to a scrap of white cardstock.  Stamp one flower from each of the following colors of ink:  Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Blushing Bride.

Use the coordinating Petite Petals Punch  to punch out the flowers.

Now use the Scallop Trim Border Punch to create your banners. Punch along the long edge of each 1.25″ strip on both sides to create the decorative border.  There will be a partial scallop at the end of each strip.  I just trimmed those off so it would be a bit neater.

Now adhere the scalloped trim banners to your card, starting with Wisteria Wonder on the left, then Pool Party, then Blushing Bride.

Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere each of the flowers to the end of the same color banner.

    Those are so pretty and really so sweet. I mean, it is one thing to ‘say’ thanks but another thing to make your own cards… thanks for sharing

    I love every second of the tutorial and the finished product. I’d love to make cards like that – but I’d only be able to do it if the equipment is all available at the craft store. I like your tip about cutting everything at one time. That was like an aha moment for me! Now, I’ll be making a lot more projects a lot more simple with that step.
