An ornament...card...??

I'm getting a bit behind again with my posting so I thought I'd share this card that I taught  (or one very similar) at Kept Creations last week.  This is made using the rosette technique and sandwiching it between two pieces of cardstock.

Here's a side view...

I used a series of Spellbinder dies for the main circle and rim of the circle.  I punched a bunch of snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch and embossed the front of the card with the new Spellbinder M-Bossibilities.  Rounding the corners softened the effect.  You can see that I added a loop so that this can be hung on the Christmas tree.  If you'll skip on over to my Craft-Dee BowZ blog, you'll see some different samples of this same card, but they will be offset with a pretty bow (of course!).

I hope this has inspired you to create a little out of the box.  Ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!

Awesome! I'll be looking into this more closely. I love it!

What a cool idea, DD, and very pretty! Did you do all the pleating by hand? It's really a great gift, too.

Great card DeeDee. Great idea to add the loop to hang or use as a tag. I love the colors you used. Is that rosette in the center do tell?
