Day 7

Hi there dear sweet friends!!!! I hope this post finds you relaxing in the easy chair enjoying your evening!!! I have been busy at work on another project for the 12 days of Christmas Challenge. Today's project is a gift of thanks. Everyone needs thank you cards this time of the year, so why not make up a little set for a special friend?

Gift of Thanks Card Set
I love to make sets of cards that use the same idea and use different colors to make them all unique! It takes no time at all to make a set once you have the basic idea!!!
Supplies Used:
All items are PTI unless otherwise noted:
Cardstock: Rustic Cream, Lemon Tart, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist
Cardstock: Bazzill Red
Larger than Life Stamps and Dies
Signature Greetings Stamp
Banner Borders Die
Yellow Plaid Ribbon: Joann's Fabrics
Ribbon: Lemon Tart, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Crushed Olive, Barn Red, Brushed Corduroy
PTI Inks: Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush
Colorbox Classic Pigments Cateye
Patterned Paper: The Girls Paperie by Margie Tinsel and Twig
PTI Button in Sweet Blush
PTI Button Twine
The dots were stamped with an eraser using one of the Banner Borders as a template

Here's a close-up of each of the cards:
The cards all measure 4 3/4" x 4 1/4".
For gift giving, I tied them with PTI Button Twine and added a button embellishment.
I changed the base colors of each card, but used the same green on each design.I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope that you have been inspired!!!
Hope you have a wonderful evening!!!
See you tomorrow for day 8!!!

Kristii, your cards are awesome. I love the gingham ribbon, the pencil dot, and...well, just everything. I may just have to make a set just like it!
