Make your own Thanksgiving Cards

 
 
I shared this Vintage Postcard with you....and maybe you are thinking,
 
''What am I supposed to do with that?"
 
Well this is the card I came up with and here are the steps I used -

 
 
I used this printable, save to your computer and decide how many you will need to make.
 
 


 
I just loved the vibrant colors in this Post card.
 
I wanted to make 4 cards.
 
 

Carefully cut apart.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I used a glue stick to attach post card to a thin scrap of cardboard.
 
You probably have a stash of cardboard...am I right?
 
 
 
I cut along the edge.
 
 
 
I wanted to darken and distress the edges. Ink works well but if you don't have any
 
a felt tip watercolor pen will be fine too.

 
 
Then used Tacky glue to attach postcard to another layer of corrugated cardboard....
 
more scraps right?




 
I had ribbon that I added with glue and a couple of buttons.
 
 
 
 
 
I added a bit of glitter to the foliage. I keep a bit of everything...it just happened that I had extra
 
envelopes with gold lining saved for some reason. The envelopes were 5 1/2'' x 7 1/2''.
 
 
I have more cards here that you can choose from.
 
If you used a standard size, the cards are light weight and should mail fine.
 
It is probably best to double check with the Post Office for weight to be safe.
 
You can write a note on the back side or just sign your name.
 
I think it will be greatly appreciated by your loved ones and friends.
 
Happy Thanksgiving!
