Thank You Cards

I do not make my own Christmas cards anymore, but I do make my own Thank You cards every year.  This year I was inspired by two different crafters.  First, Robyn from My Pink Stamper made a similar tag card last spring with a bird on it.

Here is my scrap-lifted card from Robyn.

My snowman inspiration came from my Secret Stocking Sister Michelle (aka greengirl).  She used Jolly Holidays for this adorable snowman card that she sent me.  I don't have that cart, so I made my own snowman.

First, I started out with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and used the mirror feature for my card base.  My tag card is sized 5.89w x 4.53h.  This way I could fit four to a page.

Then I put the same tag on a new layer and made it just a bit smaller than the card base.  My tag is 2.73w x 4.06h.  I hid the ribbon slit on the tag with Hide Contour.  I welded the word "thanks" from Songbird.

I found the snowman from Jolly Holidays and put it in a new layer and sized it to fit my card 2.32w x 3.94h.

I opened a new layer and it is hard to see here, but the snowman is showing through.  I took two circles from George and sized them until they were the same size as the snowman and welded them together.

I cut out the tuxedo hat from Paper Doll Dress Up 1.38w x 2.25h.  I used my Peachy Keen Stamp for the snowman's face.  I jazzed him up with stickles and yarn and a little blue ink on the edges.

I love how each one is just a bit different!!!

So, SO cute Lori!

I just wanted to thank you for the Christmas card of your beautiful family! It was a pleasant surprise to come home to when going through our mail! Tanner was so excited to get a card from "another Tanner"!

Hope you and your family have a wonderful start to the new year and a fantastic 2011 ahead of you!
