Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by today! It’s Carissa Wiley here. Welcome to
day 2 of The 12 Designers Of Christmas.
I’ll be featuring the Thanks and Cherish stamp sets in today’s projects! I’ve used the
thanks stamp set to create a super fast and easy winter themed thank you note. I
know once Christmas comes, we’ll all be busy making thank you notes for all the
fabulous gifts we received.
I love the way the thank you sentiment die cuts so perfectly with the coordinating thank you
honey cut die. It’s super easy to line up too. And, this set is designed so that you can use it as
“thank you”or add the s and use it as “thanks”. Both dies are included with the
coordinating dies.
I quickly punched some snowflakes out of white card stock and vellum. To make the
snowflakes super sparkly, I added just a touch of the Honey Bee Ice Chips glitter.
This chunky glitter is so beautiful and sparkly. It reminds me of a winter
wonderland. And just a touch of this glitter takes a plain white snowflake from
ordinary to fabulous.

To add just a touch of color to the background, I used some Distress Inks and
blended them on to the card front. For the pink version, I used Tattered Rose and
Spun Sugar.

For the minty blue version, I used Evergreen Bough and Cracked
Pistachio. I love the touch of color this added without taking away from the softness
of the card.

Once I had all of my elements ready, it was just a matter of layering up
the elements, and a little bit of polka dot acetate.

I also made another version of these cards featuring the Cherish stamp set and Cherish Honey Cut die. The card layout and most of the  elements are exactly the same, but I substituted hearts for snowflakes.

I also added just a touch of gold stitching for a little bit of shine.
