I am sharing the instructions for a Christmas ornament card this week.

Notecard
You will need a 5 1/2" x 4" notecard.

Notecard
Cover front of card with a 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" rectangle of scrapbook paper.

Paper
Cut out an approx. 2 1/8" circle from cardstock and a slightly smaller circle from a lighter cardstock or scrapbook paper.

Dab the edges with an ink pad, if desired and glue to larger circle.

Paper
Add a sticker or stamp.

Notecard
Glue to front of card, as shown.

Kelli, these are really beautiful! I love the use of the circle with ink around the edge. A wonderful look.
I just did some circles and now wish I had a really good circle cutter. At least, I'm getting better at cutting curves.
Love,
Nancy

Elizabeth said...

These are great! You could even leave the ornament loose, just attached to the ribbon and it could be hung on a tree the next year.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again--there is a spiritual dimension to your work. I follow plenty of crafters' blogs, some greatly talented and most Christian, but none gets down as deeply into my soul as yours. God has blessed the work of your hands.

Clare said...

I always love your cards and you inspire my craft side, thankyou.

I have given my blog a face lift pop by and have a peek,
