Twisted Christmas Thank You Cards

My mother made us write Thank You cards every Christmas.  We thanked everyone for or gifts, even Santa.  My mamma raised us right.

I make Cordelia at least call to thank everyone personally.  She even thanks me for making dinner or buying her clothes.  She is a good girl.  There is not enough of that behavior in society today.

This twisted card I saw in a book and was inspired by cards by Kelly Gettafinger.

You will need:

        • Heavy cardstock for the base
        • scraps of cardstock
        • Pen
        • Glue

Paper Selection

Since you see both sides of the paper either two sided or solid colored paper is needed for the base card.  Everything else can be whatever color you want as long as you can see the writing. 

I went with traditional Christmas colors since this is a thank you for Christmas presents.  It can be easily adapted for any occasion.

Cutting the Card

I went with a white pen because it showed up well and seemed appropriate for the snowflakes.

This card is very easy to cut.

Folding and Assembly
Start by re creasing all the fold lines.  Then fold along the long diagonal line.  The short fold line now is the center of the card fold.
 
The two weird shapes panels with writing slide into the card in the front and middle.  Look at the picture for how.  They don’t require glue but I put some on just the same.
 

Glue the Thank you to the inside of the card.

And your card is done! And it fits in an A2 envelope.
