Handmade: Dr. Seuss Themed Thank You Cards

I finally finished making the thank you cards to send out to everyone who came to Lil Man’s 1st birthday. It took me forever to make them because I wasn’t motivated on the design nor keen about writing over 30 cards. But, I wanted to make and send them because I wanted everyone to know we were grateful.

Here they are… they’re not pretty. In fact, I think they’re pretty ugly. Lol. But, they’re done. They’re handmade. They’re colorful. Our theme was Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat, so I decided to add his head peaking into the card.

 

Materials:

  • Box of 5×7 notecards from Target (it’s a box of 100 divided into 6 colors)
  • Dr. Seuss image/clipart printed onto white cardstock (print it using your regular computer printer)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Cricut Expression Machine
    • Thank you shape – Accent Essentials cartridge
    • Shape for back of card – Accent Essentials cartridge
    • Thank you – Alphalicious cartridge
    • Cupcake – Celebrations cartridge

Don’t laugh. Actually, it’s okay if you do. I won’t be offended. In fact, let me know what you think. I’m sure you have plenty of suggestions on how I could have made them pretty, so I’d love to hear them. Really, because this is just the first of many handmade cards in our future. -_^
