I was inspired to make this special Christmas card. Mostly, my Christmas cards are kept relatively CAS with a little bling - as is easier to replicate and post. But every year I make a few extra special ones and hand made Ornaments for my siblings and their families. (There are 4 of us). It started a few years back and has quickly become a fun tradition as we all get a little surprise each year to add to the Christmas tree on top of the usual gifts for children etc. So there will be a separate ornament to go with this card too.
It's hard to see but there is some gold snowflake Vellum in the background and there is a base. I combined two Tutorials into one from Splicoaststampers: the Tent card and Suspension card and adapted the measurements for this 13cm square one and despite all the dimension it can still lie flat for posting. I used 6 die cuts and some Metallic Gold Thread to do the suspending and suggest using a STRONG adhesive to hold it in place.
