Snowflake Ornament

I made this card for my nephew. Every year we renew his magazine subscription to Golf Digest for Christmas. I wanted to make him something special to write a the note telling him that we had renewed it again. I'll get my sister-in-law to hand it on the tree on Christmas Eve.

I didn't get a great picture of the card. We haven't had a lot of sunny days and since I seem to be at work from sunrise to sunset, natural light alludes me.

My inspiration came from Gretchen. I don't have the SU Rub Ons, but I do have a large snowflake stamp that my sister-in-law gave to me after she gave up stamping. My Cricut and Cricut Design Studio came in handy for cutting this card out. Once I got all the measurements figured out, it was quite easy to make. The silver scallop is 5 1\2". The white ring is 5". I used the Cricut Design Studio to cut a 4" circle out of the middle thinking I would save some of the paper. But then I needed another 4 1/2" navy circle to cover the ring on the inside of the card so that was a waste of time!

You write on the scalloped edged white circle of the card. I scored the hanger so the card opens easily. (You can slightly see the score lines in the first picture.) I used a 1 1/2" tag cut using the Cricut George cartridge to make the hanger.

Thanks for looking,
