Christmas Thank You Card With Photo

My parents taught me to always say thank you.  Today is my Dad’s birthday and he passed several years ago.  This one is for you Dad.  This Christmas Thank You Photo card is like the Father’s Day Photo Card.  It actually holds several pictures and is a nice way to tell someone their gift was appreciated..

Send them a picture of you with their gift.  I just used an old picture of Cordelia.  They will know it was appreciated.  Because of the foam tape you can put a lot of pictures in this card and send them.  It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.  

You will need:
        • Heavy 2 sided cardstock for the base
        • Various Cardstock scraps
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Foam Tape
        • Download File
Paper Selection

I did this photo Christmas Thank you card  in traditional Christmas colors.  You can choose any color you want.  The base card needs to be two sided because you do see a little of both sides, but not much.  The plaid pattern works well on this card as long as you pick a pen color that shows up.  

Cutting the Christmas Thank You card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a gold gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used a font called KG Hard Candy Stripes and you can get it free at Dafont.

Be careful removing the candy parts from the mat.  They aren’t thin but the connections are  and they can tear easily.

Assembling the Happy Birthday Photo Card

First re-crease the fold.  Start by assembling all the candies with the white on the bottom  Attach the inside of the frame next.  That is the red piece with the large peppermint candy on it.  Use thin foam tape down each side for this.  That gives the space to slip several pictures in.  To do this, first lay a picture on the back of the red piece.  Then place the foam tape on three of the edges making sure not to touch the picture.  You may need to trim the picture a little.  Leave the top open.  That way you can add pictures and they can remove them later.  Then remove the picture and center and stick the red piece behind the hole with the candy facing the inside of the card.  This holds the pictures in the frame.

Then, attach the candy to the front of the card.  Next, glue the candy to the red rectangle with the writing in between the writing in the gaps.  Attach the writing piece to the  inside of the base card.  Lastly insert the picture(s) into the card.

And your Photo Christmas Thank You Card is done.  It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing
