{Freebies & Goodies} It’s All For You!

This week has been a wonderfully productive week! I’m also loving all the interaction and responses from paper lovers all over the world who have been contributing to the Feterie fan page! Thank you to everyone who have become fans, provided feedbacks, shared their awesome crafty projects with our wraps, and most importantly — purchase our paper goodness! I feel like we’ve built such a wonderful community and it has been such an inspiration. As a thank you, I’m sharing something with all of you that I recently designed. It’s a set of A2 sized cards in a FREE printable template. I have been using these cards personally with my son and I hope you enjoy them as well.

I’ve realized that it’s never too early to teach good etiquette along with throwing in some learning at the same time. A few times the past couple of weeks I have been caught without a single card to give out for very special occasions (GASP! This coming from a stationery designer?) — so, I whipped up this little set of cards (they’re 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ when folded and fits into an A2 envelope) for my son to use. My little pre-schooler has been enjoying learning his phonics lately and most recently expressed a great interest in learning to write the letters that he’s been learning about. So I thought it was the perfect opportunity to not only nurture his interest & encourage him to learn, but also teach the value of good manners as well. How’s that for packing a dual purpose into a little project like this?! There are 4 cards in the template, each have a sentiment for an occasion: Thank You, A Gift For You, Happy Birthday, and I Love You. Of course, you don’t have to be a parent to use it. It has a old school charm that I think is just absolutely endearing for anyone to use — whether you have a child or not.

You can download the printable template for 8-1/2″ x 11″ by clicking here. The template is set-up as 2 cards on an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper (I suggest printing on a cardstock such as 60lb. or 80lb. cardstock). All you have to do is trim along the pink dotted line in the template and then fold the cut sheets in half. There is ample room around the lettering to embellish the card to your heart’s desire! Feel free to use them however you wish — as a greeting card or note, gift card, add your own (or your child’s own artwork on the inside of the card), or you can even frame them! All I ask is that you don’t print a gazillion copies and sell them as your own design. That just would not be cool. Also, don’t be shy to share them on our Facebook page, too! We’d love to see how you end up using these cards.

You may be wondering, how did my little preschooler do? Take a look above! The image on the left was caught when I was not paying attention and he decided to do add his own little Picasso in the wrong spot, and ahhh… the right image is of the finished product with a little bit of my help. He gave this card to his daddy.

    What a fabulous idea! I’ve been downloading worksheets and fonts etc. for my preschooler recently, and feeling guilty about not getting her to write thank you cards, and these just combine those two things beautifully! How cool is that? Thanks so much :)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    These are wonderful! How generous of you. I’ve been wanting something similar to this since I saw some birth announcements done in cursive this way. I am so happy to have “discovered” you today :O)

    Thank you so much for this freebie! I’d been searching for thank you cards in stores to no avail! These are a perfect way for my kindergartner to use her manners and appreciate others!
