Snowflake Thank You Note Gift Set

Good Monday morning to you! We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning--our first tracking snow! Only about an inch or so, really, but everything is white and pretty. The snow is to turn to sleet and rain later in the day, so I know this won't last, but still--it makes me happy to see it!

I'm going to celebrate by sharing a little snow-themed gift this morning! I made this snowflake thank you note gift set for the Purple Onion Designs Holiday Design Team. It's a set of six one-layer thank you notes with three each of two different designs. I used both gorgeous snowflakes heat-embossed in white, from the Vintage Snowflakes Set, both embellishments from the Vintage Journaling Set, and a beautifully scripted Thank You sentiment, all from Purple Onion Designs.


I slipped the set of notes along with six envelopes into a clear note card box and set about prettying up my packaging. I used the smallest label from the Plain Jane Labels set to make a gift tag just the perfect size for the "let it snow" sentiment from the Handwritten Holiday set. I decorated my tag with a little blue rub-on snowflake embellished with a tiny pearl. Finally I stamped the Merry Christmas tape from the Holiday Border Tape Set on a cardstock band to wrap around the base of the box.


And there you have it:  a snowy little card set all ready for holiday giving!!

I hope you have a fabulous day in your neck of the woods today! Thanks for stopping by,
Emily

This is a wonderful little gift for anyone. We all need thank you cards. Be safe if you get ice. Stay in and craft!

Ooh, I LIKE this idea. And, the note cards are so pretty and very handy to have. What a great way to package them. You did BIG, my friend.

Enjoy that bit of snow while it lasts. Makes it seem very Christmas-y.

Very sweet gift Emily! Hope you don't get too much ice over there!! We were fortunate to have missed this storm our way. I really don't like the ice!!

Your card set is so pretty Emily! I love the single embossed snowflake. It's so lacy and looks so frosty on the blues.
We are getting a skiff of snow here as well tonight. It makes the day seem so much brighter and less dreary when there is at least a little snow on the ground. :)
