I wanted to try my hand at creating an ornament card. I’ve seen them here and there and the idea of creating a card that can then be hung on the Christmas tree appeals to me. I had a friend in mind when I started this card. A friend who lives through the MN winters with her nose buried in a gardening catalog . . . who buys flowers Nov – April just to get her through to spring. With that in mind . . . this card had to have some kind of flower on it. I went straight to my Pretties Kit and the next thing you know I was off and creating a ten minute card!
The base of my card is Real Red card stock that is die cut with the Scallop Circle. I cut through both pieces of card stock at the same time. Then, I stamped the Medallion onto Whisper White paper and used the Clear Circle die to make sure that I was in the exact center of my stamped image before running it through the die cut machine. I cut another circle for the inside panel of my card at the same time.
The ornament hanger is the Round Tab punch and it is also what is attached to the top and the bottom pieces of my card so it holds together. I used just a bit of silver cording to accent the holder, layered the flower pieces together, stamped a sentiment and I was done. The tiny red flower under the half back pearl is a die cut from Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlit 4-pack.
