I wanted to create a special card for some dear friends in Denmark, and I thought I'd go again with the idea of a card with a removable ornament on the front. I love the idea that even after they're finished enjoying the card, they have keepsake they can enjoy year after year. The ornament here is called a julehjerte, which means Christmas heart in Danish. It's about the most traditional ornament in Denmark and is supposed to have been invented by H. C. Andersen himself. The tag says "God Jul," which means Merry Christmas! I added a second chipboard frame to draw more attention to the tag with the sentiment. The paper and chipboard are from Daisy D's and have been biding their time in my stash for a few years now. I used this great sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You for the layout. TFL!
