Holiday Thank You Notes

It was time to make the thank you notes for the gifts that were mailed to us during the Christmas holiday. I thought it was amazing when I saw someone using the bird builder punch to make this beautiful poinsettia. I spritzed some champagne shimmer mist over the whole card to finish it off.

Mini gift bag

I needed a gift bag for the Alex and Ani bracelets that I got for my mother for Christmas. This bag measures 5x5x1. I added a satin ribbon for a handle and the flower embellishment was made using the daisy #2 die.

I think that this has got to be the prettiest Christmas card that I've made this season. Not only did I layer card stock but I also layered stamps. The very vanilla back layer is embossed with Stampin up!'s fancy fans folder ( my new favorite) and the top layer is also very vanilla but its background stamp is called en francais and then I stamped the single dasher stamp right over it and distressed the edges. The ink color was all the same in soft suede. I added some punched snowflakes then gold sticklers and I was done. The girls had a very easy time with this card.

Hot Cocoa holder gift

I had the girls over last Friday night for a holiday workshop. One of them items we made was this cute hot cocoa holder that is perfect for a teacher gift or small friend gift. Everyone loves hot cocoa and its even better with a candy cane stirred into it. I used the new scentsational season stamp set that's currently in the mini catalog.
