Merry & Bright Thank Yous

I just got Merry & Bright yesterday, so of course I had to play! Those little images are just so cute! I went back and forth several times on whether to get this set, but I've seen so many cute samples that I finally caved. It's not like it's an expensive set, so I don't know why I waited so long. Anyway, I know I'll enjoy playing with it more in the next few days.

I didn't have anything specific in mind when I started on these, so as I was working on the first one I decided to do some holiday thank you cards. I know I'll need some in a few months.

I think these images lend themselves well to 4 1/4" square cards, so that is what all of these are. The stamping on them is pretty straightforward, so I won't go into a lot of detail on that. I'm not sure if you can really see it in the pictures or not, but I did do some paper piecing on the snowman's hat and scarf. I know it's small so it might not make a huge difference, but I think the pattern adds to it IRL. Individual pictures and basic recipes are included below.
