Give Thanks, Remarkable Blog Hop

My "Give Thanks" ideas start with a Thanksgiving card.  I made a bunch of these as my family is far away.  The cards will be going to California, Utah, Colorado, Virginia and North Carolina.  I'm still in love with the Fall Fest stamp set and matching framelits, and the 14/15 in colors, so both are featured here.  Can you guess what stamp is in the background??  (It's in the Everything Elenor set)

My second project features a gift pack of 4 winter thank you notecards.  Give this to someone and they can "Give Thanks" for all the awesome gifts and meals they recieve.
This project uses the snowflakes from the Many Merry Stars stamp set (from the holiday supplement) and the Another Thank You stamp set.  Colors are Pool Party, Soft Sky, Real Red, and Silver.  The ribbon is retired, but any maching ribbon will work.

Here are the notecards inside:

And here is a super quick how to for the folder:


Cut CS 9 X5 3/4, score at 4 1/4 from each end.  With some of the leftover, you'll make the pouch for the inside.

The CS is cut to 5 X 2 3/4, scored at 4 3/4 and 4 1/4 from each side.  The bottom is scored at 2 1/2 and 2 1/4.  Use your bone folder to crease all your score lines.  Then cut out the outside 3 blocks on each side.  Use sticky strip or tombo to stick the pouch to the folder.  Cut your ribbon to 20 inches and put on with glue dots.  Someone will give thanks to you and to others with this gift!!
