Holiday Thank You Cards With Kara

Hello! It's Kara and I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season. As we approach the new year I like to send out my holiday thank you cards. I don't send out a ton of them, but I especially like to send a thank you to family and friends far away who have sent me a gift. I'm not able to give them a hug in person so a handmade card is the next best thing!

I couldn't resist making another window card scene with the adorable Holiday Houses stamp set. I started by die cutting two white panels with the same size rectangle die. In one panel ;I die cut a window using the large oval from Basic Labels Dies. I positioned the window panel on top of the second panel and traced the inside of the oval with a pencil very lightly. This way I knew exactly where to apply my distress inked evening sky.

Once my sky was compete, I die cut a few pieces of cardstock with the Landscape Border Die to create my snowy hills. I adhered them together with thin dimensional adhesive so as not to add too much bulk, but still create dimension. I was then able to tuck in all of the tiny houses and trees to create my village.

I used the Basic Greetings Die to die cut the word Thanks several times and adhered them together to create a chipboard-like embellishment. I used a few more bits from the Basic Labels stamp and die set to create the secondary sentiment.

Thanks you so much for stopping by today. Happy New Year! See you in 2018!
