Anyway, my new card was a combination of an idea I saw on Lisa's blog when I was Guest Starring at jingle Belles, she made a felt ornament that hung off of her card and could be removed and used on a Christmas Tree! LOVE that idea, and that's what I did here, too. That white circle (which you will see in a minute has 2 sides) is actually an ornament that can be removed and hung on a tree! :)
The flower was made with one of my new punches (yes, one of the ones I bought!;) The Carnation Flower Punch. You punch your pieces and then curl the strips up to make flowers! Pretty cool huh. This one turned out ok, but I hope to get even better with these! :) I used my new Retro Flower Punch from my prize package to make the leaves. The stamps I used are also from my prize! Ok, here's the backside of the ornament...
Admittedly, another new punch, this is the Large Snowflake Punch. I punched it and glittered it with some cheap green glitter from my stash. I ran a string between the two sides of the oranment, and tied a bead on the bottom half and looped the top half so that it could hang on a tree. Here is the inside of the card, so you can see someone could just undo the tape and voila! Ornament time! :)
Here's a pic of the card closed. I took the die cut piece that I'd cut out to "frame" the ornament, and taped it to the inside, so it all fits together when closed. I really love the way this looks... :)
And that's it for me today, I need to make my brother a birthday card soon, so I hope to be back this weekend! :)
