Christmas Thanks

This is the first Christmas themed thank you card that I have made. I thought it would be great to make a few thank you cards to have on hand this year for my kids to give out after opening their Christmas gifts. The image that I used is from The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Dressy stamp set. I created the poinsetta in her hair by using a small flower punch from EK Success and folding down the center of each petal and then snippin the ends into a point. I then glued 2 of them together and colored the flower that is in her hair green for the leaves of the poinsetta flower and added the poinsetta on top of it and added a red gemstone to the center.



I created this card using 4 challenges:

Crafting Life's Pieces Sketch Challenge: Challenge #11 ~ Sketch

Creative Card Crew Challenge: Challenge #38 ~ Favorite Things

Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge: Challenge #14 ~ Thanksgiving card or a card expressing thanks

Winter Wonderland: Challenge #26 ~ Create a card using no Christmas paper or Christmas Stamp.

Supplies: The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Dressy Stamp Set, EK Success Flower Punch, Red Gem, Fiskars Texture Plate ~ Dots, Studio G Stamp (sentiment), Red Card Stock, Green Cardstock & White Cardstock.
