A Fun Twist for Card Blanks

Here is a fast card that adds a fun twist to a basic card blank.

Hello Friend

White 12 x 12 cardstock makes designing these cards a snap and you can cut three blanks from one sheet of paper!

  1. Cut a 3 ½ x 11 ¾ piece of white cardstock and score on the horizontal edge, vertical lines at 5 and 10 inches.
  2. On the small remaining flap, measure and lightly mark the center on the edge of the cardstock.  Trim from the top and bottom fold lines to the pencil mark to create a point.
  3. Apply Morocco Memento ink to the pointed flap with a jumbo sponge dauber.  Stamp the sentiment in Onyx Black VersaFine.
  4. Stamp Trailing Beauty across the front with Morocco ink.
  5. Center and cut a 1 inch vertical slit in the front flap that is positioned 1 3/8 inches from the right edge.
  • Optional:  Ink the inside of the pointed flap with the same color ink and add another sentiment.


Penny Black Stamps:  Trailing Beauty 40-207, A Bunch 30-174 (sentiment)
Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko:  Onyx Black VersaFine, Morocco Memento Ink, Jumbo Sponge Dauber
Other: 12 x 12 white cardstock
