Christmas Thank You Cards

I've seen this technique around a few times and wanted to give it a try.  I decided to use some of the new Gina K. Designs Christmas papers.  I cut 1/4" strips of several different papers.  I ran a piece of card stock through my Xyron so I would have a sticky surface to put them on.  I adhered my pattern and die cut the "Thanks" in the center and carefully removed it.  I cut 12 more "Thanks", 6 in green and 6 in red.  I glued all of the red ones together and the green ones together and glued the patterned paper die cut on top of each.  These both fit into the die cut on the card front and was attached with a little glue.  It leaves you with a very interesting, subtle thank you card.  Click on the picture to make it bigger and easier to see.  Thanks so much for coming by to look!
