10 Easy DIY Thank You Cards

1. Use paper scraps: For this card, I picked up all the paper leftovers of my Studio Calico kit and then arranged them on the card front. Finished the card off with a bold sentiment that I adhered to a cute little tag. This is the best way to kill a kit 🙂

2. Add paper doilies: This is a quick way to add dainty prettiness to your card. Cut a doily or two in half and adhere to your card. Add a sentiment to finish it off.

3. Pull out your embossing powders and have fun! For this card I used a fun debossing technique that uses stickers for masking.

4. Punch Paper shapes: You can easily make DIY Thank You Cards but punching shapes and adhering it. Full tutorial here

5. Add drama with ribbon! A ribbon can make a card look grand so easily! Add a bow, pleat a ribbon or as I did here create a ribbon focal point.
