Monday and Paper Popsicles Week

The 365 Cards Challenge for Day 254 is to make a card that is also an ornament. So, I took that literally and made a card that is shaped like an ornament!

Since this is also Paper Popsicles week, I was given the ornament shaped card template shown below. Again, this was a PDF file, so I could bring it into Photoshop and alter it. So what I did was enlarge the template to approx. 5x5 inches, and then use only one of the ornaments for my card.

I made the card out of tan cardstock, and then covered it with My Mind's Eye printed paper. I used Stampin' Up brushed silver paper for the ornament top. The snowman image is Papertrey Ink, colored with colored pencil and cut with Spellbinders dies.

I added some wide gingham ribbon and some thinner grosgrain, plus a PTI button, tied with twine.

Thanks for looking!
