Christmas Ornament Cards… Sunday, Dec 18 2016 

Now that I’ve given them to my crafting friends I thought I would show you some Christmas Ornament cards I made:

The Santa panel is cut from the Graphic 45 paper, I used the larger image from the sheet to make the card but you could cut the smaller ones for tree decorations. I might do some of those if I get the time

For a closer look:
