As many of you know, we are huge paper freaks. Cards, notebooks, wrapping paper… you name it, we’re obsessed with it. With that, we were beginning to wonder why we hadn’t taken it upon ourselves to create some of our very own stationery. And since we’re loving everything gold, what better project than a set of super simple, but fabulously gilded thank you card’s? These designs were a cinch to make, and all come together to create a lovely suite. Keep reading for the instructions to all three!

  • heavy white cardstock
  • spray adhesive
  • gold glitter
  • metallic gold paint
  • ‘merci’ stamp 
  • black ink pad
  • 2 inch hole punch
  • scissors
  • fine tip paint brush
  • wide paint brush

  1. Cut card stock in half width-wise. Fold halves in half to create 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch cards.
  2. On another piece of cardstock, use hole punch to cut out 2 inch circle.
  3. Center paper circle on front cover of folded card, and spray with adhesive. Immediately cover with glitter, allowing glitter to pour over edges of circle, onto card.
  4. Once dry, remove circle and stamp ‘merci’ in center.

    I know this is old, but thanks! I’m in love with the glitter one. I’m going to tweak it a bit by using pink glitter and penning the word instead of using a stamp, but I never would’ve thought of using glitter like that.
