Thinking of you thanks

The colors in the Simon Says Stamp January card kit, seem so made for masculine cards to me. Maybe it is just the wintery darkness of the patterned papers. I love them and am  having a good time playing with them. My next card, is also a thank you card -- for my Dad.  I am always thinking about him too, so it is a two-fer card with a surprise in side...sincere thanks for a wonderful holiday.

A very simple card to make, but I need simple since I haven't done much card making since mid December.

The sentiment is stamped in white pigment ink, and then heat embossed with white powder. I added 5 more snowflakes to the front with white stamping and embossing.  I needed just a bit more, so I pulled out new but forgotten and never used  wood snowflake pieces.

Once the front panel was done I mounted it to the white card base, added a strip of the same paper inside, stamped thank you so much inside and called it a day.

My Dad will love the card.  During my visit I noticed he has my recent cards all hanging on the refrigerator doors. He made a point of telling me he had gotten additional magnet clips...I think he was hinting for more cards!

I am entering this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Something New .
The card kit is new to me, and this is the first time I have stamped and embossed on to patterned paper.

Thanks so much for taking the time to come by.

Cardstock - Neenah Aspen White 110 lb
Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny Altitude 6x6 pad
Ink- Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink, Versafine smokey grey (interior sentiment)
