Thank You for Christmas...

I attended a Christmas luncheon today. It was really a very nice event, and extremely thoughtful of them to invite me. So I decided I would make a little thank you card to send the hosts. Of course, this could be used as a thank you for a Christmas gift as well.

This was really a pretty quick and easy card, so you could make several in a short amount of time if you needed to. If you changed the papers, it could be used for any occasion. I am always in need of thank you cards. I don't send nearly as many as I should. And it really makes someone feel so special to get one in the mail, doesn't it?

This was made from two different Outlines Rubber Stamps. The red square layer is from the Joy Ornament Square , and the other stamp is Outlines Thank You .

First I stamped the Joy Ornament Square on red Daisy D's designer paper, then embossed with detail clear embossing powder. The reason I chose this stamp for my back layer is because it has a more festive border than that Thank You square. I added Green Geo Shapes Sparkler Stickers for a little bling.

The Thank You was stamped and embossed twice, once on blue Daisy D's designer paper, and again on green cardstock. Each was cut out and layered.

The blue scalloped layer was cut from Daisy D's paper using square Nestabilities.

The bottom edge was trimmed with my new Martha Stewart embossing punch. I used a 50% off coupon to buy it at Michael's a few weeks ago.

The new My Favorite Things stamps are here. And they are cute, cute, cute! I will have them up in the store before I go to bed tonight.

So...that's it for me. I'm still recovering from yesterday's marathon day, so I'm going to try to hit the sack a little early if I can. Somehow, that never seems to work out as I have it planned!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very nice card! I didn't realize you had an EBay store; I just checked it out and put it under favorites (have to wait until after my trip to order...I leave tomorrow and won't be near a computer!) Thanks for sharing.
