Winter Thanks

I know you’ve heard it 1000 times already, but how on earth is it 2020? I saw a meme on facebook in the last few weeks that said something about how can it be that the new millennium started 20 years ago when 1980 was only 20 years ago. I had a good laugh at that. I was born in the 70s so the 80s are very vivid in my mind… and there’s no way that was 40 years ago!!!

I am back with the design team, but on a part time basis right now… Hopefully you’ll see some more from me in the coming weeks.

For this month, I knew I wasn’t done playing with my Christmas stamps and dies… so I wanted to create something that shows you can use these images for at least a little while in to the new year. And since I’ve needed quite a few thank you cards in the last little bit, I decided to make a winter thank you card.

I don’t have any process photos for this card because honestly, it was pretty easy to put together. I cut out the Memory Box Telluride Snowflake using some silver glitter paper from the Concord & 9th 6×6 neutral glitter pack and I trimmed off the extra piece I didn’t need (the hanger). I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut out a window on a 4X5.5″ piece of white cardstock. I added some Gina K Connect Glue around the one portion of the window and glued the snowflake so it was peeking out of the window. I used foam adhesive to put the layer of patterned paper from the MFT 6X6 Over the Rainbow pad behind the snowflake. I added regular double sided tape behind the patterned paper and foam adhesive behind the rest of the panel before adhering it all to the card front. I finished it off using the Lawn Fawn Simply Sentiments stamp with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and cut it out with the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiments Banners die.

Once designed, this card would be great to mass produce as it wouldn’t take long to get a bunch of them put together.
