Today, I am going to show you a versatile card that can be used for absolutely anything. As you can see in my picture, I made birthday, thinking of you, and friend cards using the same basic principle. The best part is you can crank these out rather quickly– make a set to have on hand for various occasions. These particular ones I made for a group I am in that sends cards to seniors. With nothing but white card stock, some leftover scraps, ribbon, and a stamp… I made several cards to send.
Supplies (For 1 Card)
white card stock, 8.5″ x 5.5″
white card stock, 4″ x 5.25″
Scrap printed paper, 1″ x 5.25″
Stamp (picture & sentiment)
- Fold white card stock (8.5″ x 5.5″) in half. Crease well.
- Adhere scrap (1″ x 5.25″ to left hand side of white rectangle (4″ x 5.25″), align flush with left and top/bottom.
- Stamp image and sentiment on front right of card.+
- Measure 6″ of ribbon, and wrap around rectangle as shown in picture. Adhere ends to back of rectangle, ensuring ribbon covers seam between printed paper and white paper.
- With remaining 2″ of ribbon, tie faux knot to the front.
- Adhere white card stock (4″ x 5.25″) to center of folded card.
Super easy right? The sky is the limit on this one! They are super-easy to crank out a bunch, assembly-line fashion… I’m thinking Christmas cards or a note card gift pack?

Thanks for stopping by! Off to check out your blog.
Thanks for the tip! Those cards look store-bought, yet so easy to make! I guess once you have all the materials handy, it’s easy to make these when the occasion arises.
