Cut a 10 inch by 7 inch piece out of the white cardstock and fold it in half to make a 5 inch by 7 inch card.
Cut a 2-3/4 inch circle from the center of the stamping mask paper. Remove colored backing from paper and position it on the card front.
Place the snowflake stamps in a random pattern on the clear stamping block. Use the olive dye ink to stamp in the circle opening of the card front.
Remove the stamping mask paper to reveal the completed ornament design. Glue small buttons, gems and beads onto the stamped design.
Use red ink to stamp the Happy Holidays expression.
Thread the bells onto a 10 inch length of the jute twine. Secure with a small knot. Glue a small bow made from the jute twine to the bell knot. Trim ends. Attach to the ornament as shown with a craft glue. Secure the loose ends to the back side of the card front with craft glue or a small piece of tape.
Use different stamps to create a variety of designs for each of your cards. Because of the dimensional attachments, these Button Christmas Cards should be hand delivered instead of mailed.
