Believe ~ Hanging Ornament Card


Made this card with my leftovers from the Moments to Remember November Kit I received as their Guest Designer for this month. The adorable ornament was made by their Super Talented Design Team Member Shannon! Isn't it just the cutest!? I love it!

To make the card, I started off with my base card and adhered another piece of paper to the center front, only putting glue on the edge of the paper not the center(you will see why shortly). I then placed my ornament in the center of that paper and marked around the ornament where I should cut my window. I NEVER measure! I am so bad! I then placed my open card on a cutting mat, lining it up with the lines on the mat to assure a straight cut. Using my ruler as a guide, I cut out a window with my craft knife.

Attach ribbon and bow to top of ornament.

Now at the top of the window, between the base paper and the top paper, it will be open. That is due to not applying glue to the center of the paper originally. Now add some glue between the 2 sheets of papers and insert top of ribbon that is attached to ornament. Seal. And now you have a hanging ornament card.

Use the cut out piece of paper from the front of the card, on the inside.

I then added some strips of striped paper to the top and bottom of the card and then some little green gems in the corners. The Merry Christmas tag on the top corner of the window is also from the kit.

Have a great night!

Hugs, Melissa
