This card will pop-up out of the envelope and delight the recipient!
I had made a card similar to this for Valentines Day with the heart punch and as soon as I saw the ornament punch I knew I needed to make a Christmas version.
To start, I folded Pretty in Pink cardstock in half and stamped my greeting along the bottom with Gold Encore ink. This greeting is one of four in the Holiday Mini stamp set – Four the Holidays, $18.95, #116921, page 19.
Next, I punched a scallop edge on Whisper White cardstock and layered Soft Suede and Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper on top. I glued a piece of Soft Suede ribbon to the back of the card and wrapped gold cord around the ribbon several times and knotted it underneath.
To make the pop-up ornament, I punched 8 ornaments from the Christmas Cocoa dsp. Each ornament was folded in half. Then I glued the ornaments to one another by attaching a folded half to the folded half of the next ornament. The completed pop-up ornament was glued onto a punched piece of soft suede cardstock to give it more stability. I tied gold cord around the top of the ornament and glued the end of the cord to the back of the layered cardstock pieces of Whisper White and Pretty in Pink. Using dimensionals, I layered this piece onto another layered piece of Soft Suede and Christmas Cocoa.
This card will fit into an envelope. Here I used a clear envelope to show how it looks folded.
