I've got a little something for you today. So, we found out that grandparent's day is this coming Sunday, September 11th. We've created a few free greeting card PDF templates / printables that you can download so you can send them some love this weekend. If you're reading this before the 11th, there's still some time to mail them! If not, and it's the last minute, you can send them as an e-card.
THE STORY BEHIND THE PRINTABLE
Both Kevin & I live far from our grandparents. Because of this, we have to communicate via mostly phone calls with them. While visiting in person is the best way to keep in touch and talk to them, snail mail is one form of media that they probably appreciate the most. There's nothing like getting a heartfelt note / love letter via airmail to brighten up one's day. (Also, it's not a bill, hehe, so that's a nice break from the typical pile of mail pieces.) Your personal note can be added on the inside of the card, as we've left it blank.
DOWNLOAD THE CARDS
We're attaching photo links of the .pdf files below. These are half fold cards, and there are 3 different designs you can choose from. (If you're trying to send them as an e-card, downloading the photos as .jpg files will probably be better than the .pdf files.) This printable is for personal use only, and may not be reproduced or shared without credits, sold for profit or redistributed for commercial purposes.
1. Full Color
2. Red and White
3. Black and White
AFTER THE DOWNLOAD
Step 1: Print out the .pdf file. We recommend printing it out on cardstock instead of printer paper. There are lightweight cardstock / index cardstock options at office supply stores or craft stores in case you don't have them at home.
Here's what it looks like after printing it out.
We picked the black and white version of the greeting card
Step 2: Fold the card / piece of paper in half along the faint line in the middle.
The line should be barely visible after folding.
Folding in half, carefully.
Step 3: Write a personal message / note on the inside of the card.
And that's it!
Want to send them more than a card? We have customizable jewelry and gifts for any occasion that they might love. You can personalize almost all of our pieces with custom dates, text, names and initials.
DON'T FORGET TO SHARE!
Feel free to share it on social media / email / what have you. We'd love it if you tag us @redpandascloset or #rpcfreebie so we can see your space with the print.
