Thank You Card: Christmas (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
I sat down this week and put together some simple thank you cards to send to family and friends who gave gifts to my family and me for Christmas. They came together really quickly and I enjoyed making them. I am so blessed with so many people in my life who do so much for me and my family.
I was inspired by a simple, yet beautiful card I saw on Pinterest last week made by Susan Riahala. Here's Susan's card.
I also decided to use my friend, Shari's motto of "use what you have" when I made these cards (thanks, Shari!). I went through my stash of retired Close To My Heart papers and found the notebook patterned paper in an old kit called "Notebook". I loved that kit and hoarded it shamelessly. Now I have tons of it, and what better way to use it than to show gratitude, right? So, although the notebook printed paper is no longer available, pretty much everything else you see on the card is.
CTMH products used: Say it in Style Stamp Set (perfect sentiment stamp set for every occasion!), Snowflakes Stamp Set, Colonial White Bulk Cards and Envelopes, Cocoa Stamp Pad, Cranberry Stamp Pad, Cranberry Cardstock, Notebook Paper (retired), Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon, Cranberry Organdy Ribbon (retired), Chocolate Waxy Flax, Mocha Opaques (I used the lightest colored opaques in this collection on the card).
You can purchase these and so many other wonderful products on my website. Don't forget that this is the last day to take advantage of the December Stamp of the Month ($5 with a $50 order). The "Rock the Block" special is also going on right now. That kit is only $15 with a $25 order!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
