Some quick and simple Hello and Thank You Cards

  Pooh Bear and American Craft City Park DP (Bee Nosy Pooh stamp)

I need to send some thank you cards, and I need to get with it! I decided to make this fun fold card in different versions, using some of my fave and much loved stamps. With this type of fun fold, you will need to use double sided designer paper.Sentiment is a Heidi Grace Stamp.

Tried to write the direction on the picture, , but guess it is a little too little for even me to read, so I will recap here. Sawwwrrry........

Here  you go!

Cut two sided designer paper at 4 inches x 11 inches
Score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches
Use either a punch or nestie to cut out your opening in the middle panel.
Make sure you position your image so it shows through the opening. (Don't ask how many times
I glued the image on the wrong side) It needs to be glued on the left side that is 3.5 inches wide.
Punch your little tab (I used the retired tab punch from SU! but you could use a button or brad too.) will tuck one side of the folded card under this tab (or brad/button) and this will hole the card shut.
Tie a ribbon through your tab for decoration.
Close left side first when folding up card.
If you want, add another panel on the right side to write our message. I just sort of eyeballed the size and added a pretty SU! border punch to this one.

How I did the sentiment. I cut two nestie labels, I cut the red one in half and glued each piece to the back of the white sentiment tag.

This is what it looks like. An easy way to surround  your sentiment with color!

Hope you enjoyed these little cuties. They were lots of fun to make!
Sorry if your rec'd this post twice in your reader...I hit publish before adding in the test...oopsie.
