Hello friends! Now that the holidays are over you might be like me and in need of some thank you cards. Am I right?!! I love taking "holiday" themed stamp sets, like this Mama Elephant Snow Angels Stamp Set and giving it new life as a wintery thank you card! Today I'm sharing this set of three cards and even sharing how to turn one of them into an interactive action wobble card!

Watch the creation of these tall and skinny snow angels thank you cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The base of each card was created by trimming smooth white cardstock to 9" x 7" and scoring the 7" side at 3.5".
The snow angel and feet images from the Mama Elephant Snow Angels Stamp Set were stamped on the background scene with Hero Hues Splash Reactive Ink. A greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks Stamp Set was stamped along the curved edge of the snow with Hero Hues Splash Reactive Ink.
The thought bubble greeting from the Simon Says Stamp All The Thanks Stamp Set was stamped on smooth white cardstock with Hero Hues Splash and Blue Hawaii Reactive Inks, die cut with the coordinating All The Thanks Die and adhered to the sky with foam adhesive squares.
Images from the Mama Elephant Snow Angels Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink and colored in with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
- Cat: Dark Gray, Warm Gray2, Blender, Pale Pink
- Fox: Brown, Light Brown, Flesh Colour, Pale Pink
- Rainbow Scarf: Peach Pink, Sugared Almond Pink, Red, Light Carmine, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Light Green, Yellow Green, Turquoise Green, Green Shadow, Light Blue, Blue
- Bear & scarf: Deep Brown, Oatmeal, Blender, Pale Pink, Blue, Light Blue
- Baby bear hat: Peach Pink, Sugared Almond Pink, Red, Light Carmine
The images were die cut with the coordinating Mama Elephant Snow Angels Dies. Details were added to the critters' faces with a fine tip black pin, black glaze pen, and white pen. On the first two cards, the images were glued directly to the background. For the third card, the images were adhered with Mini Action Wobbles for a fun, interactive design!
The cards were finished with a scattering of small clay snowflakes and heart accent.
