Ornament Card (Merry Monday

Hi friends! Spent some much needed time in my studio on Monday and got out of my funk. It's a good thing! This was a card I knew I'd like to make as soon as I saw the Merry Monday challenge on my Facebook feed. As a reminder, you can follow my blog (and many others!) on Facebook. Here's the link to my Facebook Fan Page. I am on Facebook a lot, and I find it's great when I can incorporate the blogs I follow into that. :)

Here's the graphic for the challenge:

I had made this card a few years ago, and that was my jumping off point for this card. I knew I wanted to make a card with a removable ornament. I die cut the card front, so the ornament will lay flat for mailing.

I used my TCP Ornament CutUps, Framed Up CutUps, Celebration CutUps, and Vintage Holiday stamp set.

Here's a shot of the card interior. I used some washi tape to hold the ornament in place.

This is fun, I like that if you didn't want to hang your ornament on the tree, it gives a nice 3D feel when the card is standing open.

This paper is Stampin' Up! I also used some American Crafts glitter paper in gold and a large gold brad for some sparkle.

That's all for me today, Happy Thursday!! :) 

hugs, Noelle
