CHRISTmas Thank You Cards

Time to write the Thank Yous for all the wonderful gifts we received.  Since I bombed and didn't make all my Christmas cards by hand this year as I had planned (Walmart Photo to the rescue!), I thought I could at least make the thank you notes.  I wanted a simple cut that would be quick to put together since I was making a small bunch of them at one time.  The card measures 4" x 5 1/2".  I found the tree at it was one of the Christmas card trees.  Both the background paper and the printed tree paper came from DCWV's Christmas Stack.  I used the cuttlebug's lace embossing folder for the light green tree parts- which I was so happy that it matched the lacey damask print on the dark green Christmas paper!!  I love it when things come together like that!  I bought a ton of red glittery ribbon from someone on ebay and have used it for curly hair bows, and now I added it to this card. I ran my atg gun down it, and then cut it off every 5 1/2 inches and placed it about an inch from the side of the card.  I embellished with some pearls from the dollar section at Michael's.  Took me about an hour to do 6 of them, but that's with the 4 year old and the dog in the room!!
