Christmas Thank You Cards With Kara

Hi, Kara here today to share my annual Christmas Thank You cards. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and whether you celebrate Christmas or not, these winter themed Thank You cards are appropriate to say thanks for any reason.

I knew I wanted to make at least 10 cards. I started by making one prototype and then mass producing the rest. I made slight changes after the prototype, mainly with dimension. I love dimension, but I promised myself that these cards would not require extra postage and would be easy to mail!

First, I did all of my die cutting. I cut everything from white cardstock. 10 each of the largest and second to largest sized rectangles from the 4 Bar Stitched Rectangle Die - 20 in all - 10 deer, 10 cardinals and 10 scarves from the Winter Woodland Die. I positioned the Simple Snowflake Die on the top, center portion of the smaller stitched panel and cut all 10 snowflake windows.

Now that all of the die cutting was done it's time for stamping. I stamped all of the deer die cuts with Coconut Husk ink and the cardinals and scarves with Cranberry Crush ink. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom portion of the small panel in Black ink using the new Bold Banner Greetings stamp set. On the larger stitched panel I stamped the tree from Winter Woodland in Coconut Husk and two more cardinals on the branches using Cranberry Crush again.

Finally, it's time to assemble. I positioned the die cut cardinal on top of the "s" in "kindness", and added a little Wink Of Stella. I added the scarves to all of the deer, and again added a little Wink Of Stella. I adhered the deer to the center of the large panel and then layered the small panel over top with just a bit of thin dimensional adhesive. A little dimension, but not too much!
