Gold Ornament Spinner Card

Good Sunday afternoon!  I was going to post this card tomorrow, but I decided to stop in quickly today instead because two new Christmas collections from Crafter’s Companion are available at HSN now and may sell out before the weekend is over!  The latest Sara Signature Collections, “Traditional Christmas” and “Contemporary Christmas” are full of gorgeous foil cardstocks, intricate dies, pretty patterned papers, and coordinating dies.

I used elements from the “Traditional Christmas” range to create this ornament spinner card.  After die-cutting two of the round “Decorative Baubles” from gold foil cardstock, I sandwiched them around a small piece of gold twine at the top and fishing line (barely visible) at the bottom.  Since the flourished design in the ornament is not quite symmetrical, I added a solid white ornament die-cut in the middle of the sandwich as well.

Then, I just created a window in my cardfront for the ornament to hang in by die-cutting a circle through all of the layers (white pearl patterned cardstock, goil foil mat, and the front of the white card base).  Strong tape and a lot of glue holds the twine and fishing line tightly between the pearl and foil layers.

Since this is such a clean and simple card, I added a gold foil scallop frame to the opening on both the front and inside of the card to help accentuate the ornament, which is free to spin about when the recipient opens it.  The final touch is a sentiment from the “Peace and Joy” stamp set embossed in gold and matted with more gold foil cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this quick peek at the new “Traditional Christmas” Collection and I’d love to hear what you think!
