30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of my 30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge! Today I actually made a real-live physical card...woo hoooooo for me!!! This card was inspired by a card Angie Tieman posted, and while I rarely copy a card, I just love how hers "stacked up". Ummmm, I do have a confession to make, though. I *think* I like my digital card just a little bit more than I like my physical card. Is that evil? I can't help it, My Digital Studio makes it SO easy to put layers where you want them, and resize elements to make them just right.

My free printable has two identical cards on an 8-1/2"x11" sheet, and does not have my watermark on the card images. Just print out the PDF at 100%, then cut the sheet in half. Fold each half over, and you'll have two foldover cards :-)

I do still think the physical card is charming, but I did not have a physical label or tag in the size I wanted for the greeting, and there wasn't really any ideal way to get the vanilla behind the owl faces & bellies, and still keep the physical card quick and easy. Both would have been possible with a little tracing and cutting, but that would have been a bit more work ;-)

If you need envelopes to fit half-sheet foldover cards, I recommend one of the following:
Whisper White Medium Envelopes (40 env) for $6.50
Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes (40 env) for $6.50
Crumb Cake Medium Envelopes (40 env) for $6.50

Would you like to join me in sending out Thank You cards? Let me know by commenting on my 30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge post, and on top of the warm fuzzy feeling you'll get, you may win a special prize!

  1. Yay! This turned out SO cute! I love how you stacked them kind of lop-sided, at an angle! I need to get better at My Digital Studio, thanks for sharing that file! :)
