Winter Skies Thank You Cards

Now that Christmas is over it is time to bring out the Thank You Cards.  I make a special thank you card every year to mail out for my son and I.  I just want to make sure those who sent gifts know we appreciate them. Today I was able to carve out some time to design an make all the cards I needed this year.

Check out all those bears and trees….

Here are the two versions of the card I made.  I was inspired to make my purple background after seeing a card on Instagram by Hippofee. I used a retired stamp set called Swirling Stars. The bears and trees are from WINTER SKIES which is a Lawn Fawn Stamp Set.  The Thank You and curved dashed border are also Lawn Fawn.  My thank you cards works well with HEART 2 HEART‘s last challenge of the year…. Wish Upon A Star.

I used Lilac cardstock for the mat and Thistle for the Thank You. I used copic markers to color the trees and scarf. I stamped Swirling Stars with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with White embossing powder. I then sponged the background using Lilac, Thistle and Pansy inks.

For this version I used Bluebird cardstock for the base and Sapphire for the Thank you. The background was crated the same way using Bluebird and Sapphire inks.

Happy Crafting!


  1. These are so precious! I love the bears sitting side by side, looking up to the stars. How awesome… This honestly brings tears to my eyes because it is just so perfect. Thanks for making my day by sharing this project with us at Heart 2 Heart ❤️
