Festive Thank You Card Gift Set by Karen

A layer of black behind the white center makes it pop! I incorporated the cute star / list stamp from the School Days Planner set and added traditional Christmas colors behind the clear stickers to match the theme. The Thank You sentiment is from a non-holiday Stickers By the Dozen set and the cute gingerbread man is from the Stickers By the Dozen Gingerbread Man set. I also grabbed my pre-cut scalloped circle shapes from my stash. You could use a punch or a die cut to make these quickly, too.
