I used a pop up card design so that the inside of the card stands up. Love the finished product

My third semester of nursing school is drawing to an end. Infact, I have a final tomorrow (lets not dwell on that just now). I wanted to make a thank you card for my instructor and give her a little thank you gift. It can't be anything too over the top, I don't want to suck up- just say thank you. I found this great Christmas ornament at Hobby Lobby and decided to design card around the ornament. Sort of a 2 for 1 deal. It is a card and a small gift all in one.
The card was designed in silhouette studio. I began by measuring the ornament, and finding a way to attach it to the card. I used the product packaging for inspiration and attached the orament to the cardstock in a manner that was very similar to how it was in the original packaging.
The inspiration for this card came from the nurse ornament that I found at Hobby Lobby. Here is a close up of the ornament.The patterns on the fron of the card were printed and then embossed with my cuttlebug and swiss dots embossing folder. I stamped the thank you sentiment using CTMH stamps (but this could have been printed).
Close up of the inside left where I have created a perferated flap that can be opened to remove the ornament (held on by twist ties).
