Christmas Card + Ornament in One!


Hi, friends!  I'm back with another Christmas card made with products from The Stamps of Life, and this one has a fun TWIST to go along with it!  Not only is it a card, but it's also a handmade gift--and ornament--that fits into the card and can be taken out be the recipient!  Take a peek...


I used the *NEW* stockings4Christmas, patterns4stockings, and Stocking Dies to create this card.  I also used a circle die from the Hello My Friend Dies and some vellum from my stash--I have SO much because I purchased a bunch over a year ago and it just stays in my drawer.  It needed to come out and be used! ;)  


To help hold the velum on as an "envelope" for the ornament, I added two chevron buttons to hold it place.  I decorated inside the circle die, too, so that when the ornament is taken out, the card is still cute enough to display!


The sentiment is from the stockings4Christmas set.  I LOVE the font and it was perfect as a banner across the bottom of the card.  To balance the sentiment out, I added a banner of wood banner pieces, inked and heat embossed with Powdered Sugar Ink, to the top.



I am REALLY happy about how this card turned out!  I hope you like it, too!  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)


I'm entering my card/gift into these fabulous challenges~


(That vellum--it needed to be used!  Plus cardstocks, as well.)

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take some time today to join in the fun with these fabulous challenges!  I'll be back again later with more paper crafts.  Until then, HUGS and Merry stamping! :)
