Hi crafty people, how are you doing? I’m back today with a card for this month’s ABC Christmas Challenge for the prompt H for “hang it up”. It took me a while to think what I would make but then I remembered that I had some Tonic Studios dies which could be used to make a hanging decoration (although I’ve only used them to make card toppers so far). I decided to make the best of both worlds with a hanging decoration in a card!
I cut the star outline from pink mirror card twice and then used the detail die to cut out the design from the star. It took me a little bit to work out that I needed to cut the detail from the “inside” of the one of the stars so I could match them up. I then cut some vellum to sandwich in between the two stars and added some sparkly ribbon to hang it up.
For the card base I used some bright Christmas paper in my stash (Hobbycraft Pa Rom Pa Pom Pom 12 x 12 pad) that matched in with pink mirror card and a 7 inch square card. I cut a large round window for the decoration to hang inside. Then I covered the front and the inside with some of the patterned papers and cut a round frame for the window from the pink mirror card. I added a white circle inside to write a message to the recipient. I fussy cut a couple of the baubles from the paper and added them on 3d foam pads in two corners of the card. Inside I added a die cut sentiment. To add the decoration I folded the ribbon over the top edge of the card and stuck it down with a piece of washi tape so it can be easily removed.
I hope that you like my hang it up project for the challenge and that you are having a fabulous Easter weekend. Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I would love it if you left me a message in the comments to let me know what you think or even just to say hi!
