To give the illusion that the tree is lit up, I added a bit of yellow paint. Stitched around the perimeter and then adhered it another layer of patterned paper.
A fussy cut flower was used as a tree topper and I couldn’t resist using those adorable gingerbread boy/girl die-cuts to embellish my card. To finish the card off, I added a stamped sentiment and some enamel dots.
For the second card, I combined patterned papers from Merry Merry and Cozy and Bright collections to create a grid design.
I start by cutting my patterned paper into four rectangles (2 1/2 x 1 5/8)
Use a white gel pen and a ruler to add some faux stitching to each of the rectangles.
Next, I use a decorative die-cut with some vellum to add another layer to my card.
Embellish with a few die-cut pieces from the Cozy and Bright collection.
Add a stamped sentiment as well as a piece of patterned paper to the inside of the envelope – I really love how this turned out!
If you have a photo of you or your loved one opening that gift, why not enclose a copy of it in your card!
I hope I inspired you today to create a few Holiday thank you cards….
Have a wonderful day!
