Winter Thank You Cards

I made a trio of Thank You cards with a pretty winter theme. These cards were so quick to put together thanks to these awesome Xyron products I used:

I used a perfect mix of old and new collections from Pebbles.

Winter Thank You Cards

Snowy Pinecone “Thanks” Card

For this card, I started with a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of white cardstock and folded it in half. The FUN part…I ran the folded piece of cardstock (4.25″ x 5.5″) through the Xyron 5″ create-a-sticker machine to cover the entire front of the card with adhesive. Then, I lined up the front of my card onto the Front Porch Cottage pattern paper, pressed down, and trimmed off the excess pattern paper. I used my Xyron Mega Runner for the snowy pinecone chipboard piece (I used my Zig 2-way Glue Pen and white embossing powder to add snow to the pinecone), “Thanks” tag, and even the ends of the ribbon. I love that there are no bumps showing through and the adhesive is nice and strong. I love it! I sprinkled some Mr. Huey’s mist and also added some snowflakes and white sequins to my card to finish it off.

Snowflakes “Thanks” Card

For this card, I again started with a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of white cardstock and folded it in half. I ran the folded piece of cardstock (4.25″ x 5.5″) through the Xyron 5″ create-a-sticker machine to cover the entire front of the card with adhesive. Then, I lined up the front of my card onto the From Me to You Ring Ring pattern paper, pressed down, and trimmed off the excess pattern paper. I used my Xyron Mega Runner to add the “text” trim (from the same pattern paper) to the left side of the card. I ran the thinner piece of Silver POW! Glitter Paper through the Xyron 5″ create-a-sticker machine for full adhesive coverage. Love it! I sprinkled some Mr. Huey’s mist, added a few snowflakes with White Glitter Candy Dots on them, and finished it off with a “Thanks” chipboard piece covered with Diamond Zazz! Glitter Glue.

Winter Forest “Thanks” Card

For this card, I started with a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of white cardstock and folded it in half. BUT, I did not run it through the Xyron 5″ create-a-sticker machine. Instead, I ran my ready cut pieces of Lakeside pattern papers, Lakeside tree stickers, and Peppermint Express ribbon through the Xyron 5″ create-a-sticker machine and added them to my card. Again, I love that there are no bumps! My ribbon looks especially nice and smooth! AND, I love that when I trimmed off the excess ribbon from the card, the ends of the ribbon did not fray making me have to cut it again. One cut and it looks great! Great adhesive! I added the “Thanks” sticker using pop dots and finished off the card by sprinkling some white acrylic paint for a pretty snowy effect.
