Not Your Ordinary Christmas Cards

21 12 2017

My husband needed something a little extra special. I looked at what I was working on – files from the Silhouette Design store to make Christmas ornaments.

I made the ornaments.

And cards.

I made the ornaments, as designed and directed, but I did employ some print and cut. I also added a few extra layers to the back of the ornaments for a little more stability.

Then I designed the cards to have the opening cut out to fit the ornament. I also printed off a flat, one layer design that looked like the paper layered design in the ornament. I printed it then cut it out. I didn’t want a blank circle once the recipients removed their ornament. You can kind of see the different stages in this picture.

I affixed the ornament to the card front using some dotto/hermafix temporary adhesive by EK Success. I like this because it holds things in place, but has an easy release and rubs off cleanly.
