Snowy Holiday

Good morning everyone.  Sorry my post is late!  This week at Cute Card Thursday we want you to make your own embellishments!!  All my embellishments are made from muslin.  My Christmas card doubles as an ornament for the receiver!  How cute is that?

Vintage Tilda is from the new Merry Little Christmas collection from Magnolia and Snowy Circle form the So Jolly collection.  Designer paper is from Creative Imaginations.
Here is what the ornament looks like.  I finished off the back also but didn't take a picture of it.

Front of the card under the ornament.  Sentiment is from CTMH.

ETA: the ornament is simply attched with the ribbon hanger onto the back of the card with a piece of tape.  Nothing fancy or anything, LOL!  The flower embellishment was made by fraying the edges of a strip of muslin and sewing a running stich to gather the material, like a yo-yo.

And finally the inside of the card.

Copics used to color with: BV00, B95, B93, B97, BV04, E31, E33, E44, E43, E21, E00, B41, BV02, W1, W00, W3, BV0000.

Thanks for stopping by!
