May Your Box Runneth Over

You may remember a certain box I crafted a while back when a similar box was mysteriously left on my stoop. The recipient of said box sent a raven the other day bearing a new crafting quest. It seems the mini thank you cards the box contained were a popular item and she needed more to fill the box. I made a few more that matched the previous ones, but also made some different “winter themed” ones as the others were decisively fall themed and winter has now descended upon the realm in full force.
These mini cards were also cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I ran the panel through the Cuttlebug to emboss it with a snowflake pattern, then used a sanding block to distress said snowflakes so they stood out better. For the one on the right I used the Close To My Heart stamp set and corresponding cut from Art Philosophy cartridge for the tag. The snowflake on the left one was also cut from Art Philosophy, which has been getting quite the workout recently. The sentiment was stamped from the My Pink Stamper “Friends & Family” set. The “gems” were from my stash which I’d purchased at the “everything-for-one-brass-coin-stand” in the market square quite a while ago. The ribbon was also from my stash. You may remember me mentioning I had purchased numerous rolls of it for making wedding invitations that I never ended up using. I always smile whenever I get to use some of it up.
The insides were left blank so a personal note could be written. The cute ‘lil envelopes were cut from...you guessed it...Art Philosophy.
 
These gracious minis will be entered into the following challenges:
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #77: Thank You or Thanksgiving
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Thanksgiving/Thank You

I am grateful the lady was fond of my gift and is using the mini thank yous I made for it. Receiving a handmade thank you will make anyone, save a demon, smile.
