Quick & Easy Cards Printed on Store Bought Cards

Image
Often times I need a quick card for a simple thank you (birthdays too), but I don't have a lot of time. So this project was the perfect solution.

I purchased a value pack of notecards and matching envelopes from my local Hobby Lobby. I've seen similar card sets at other craft stores. These that I'm using for this project are 4 x 5.5" and you get 50 cards/envelopes for $6.99 and the day I purchased them they were 50% off...woot, woot!! 
Simply download a graphic you would like to print on your cards. I used these beautiful floral bouquets from my all time favorite sites, Creative Market. You can use these as a JPG or EPS (illustrator) file. View them here.
I couldn't have completed this project without the help of my my PIXMA MG7720 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer. It was so easy to print these cards out once I got it set up that I couldn't stop. In fact I put together a few sets as "Birthday Gifts" for some of my friends.
The trick to this project…
