Letterpress Thank You cards



I’m a firm believer in sending thank you cards, whatever your age! I’m always trying to think of new ideas for cards, and this year I found some lovely letterpress letters in one of my favourite shops (I’ll be doing a post about it shortly…) and thought that they would be perfect. I don’t have a roller for ink so I just used my normal ink pads, but I quite like the texture of the printing. Hopefully, everyone we sent a card to has received it, so they won’t mind me telling you about them!


You will need:


Letterpress stamps – I used a T and a Y
An ink pad in a colour or colours of your choice
Some card (and possibly a trimmer if you need to cut it down to size)
A pencil and ruler
A pen in a colour of your choice



First, I measured the card and cut it to size A6 pieces, and then I measured half way along and scored the edge to fold it into a size A7 card.




Then I stamped a T and a Y in red ink, slightly off centre.




When that was dry, I wrote in the rest of ‘thank you’.




And that’s it – how easy is that?! I’m really pleased with how they turned out 🙂 We sent them out in some little yellow envelopes that I made. If you’d like to make your own, then you can check out my mini envelope tutorial here.
