Thank You Card Gift Set

I made sets of thank you cards to give as Christmas gifts. These cards were made using Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper and odds and ends from my stash. I put the sets in simple clear envelopes and tied with silver cording.

For the card above, I used prima flowers and embroidery floss. The little squares was cut with a Martha Steward postage stamp punch.

The circles were cut out with my Cricut at 3/4 inches. You could also use a 3/4 inch circle punch, whichever you have on hand!

I used the Creative Memories circle cutting system to cut out the center circle and the red frame. The letters are from The Girls Paperie.

The thanks sentiment was cut out using the Beyond Birthdays Cricut cartridge.

Christmas Treat Box - Episode 9

Here is another gift project. I used the Cricut cartridge Bags, Tags, Boxes & More for this little popcorn box, and the paper is Merry Berry from Cosmo Cricket. It doesn't show up well in this picture, but I used a sheet of transparency for the sentiment in the window. It shows up much better in the video!

Wow, it sure was cold this morning for our morning walk! It definitely puts me in the Christmas spirit!!! For today's card, I am AGAIN using paper from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly pack.
