I sewed a small, strong magnet onto the back of the snowman’s scarf and placed another one  behind the greeting panel so the ornament can easily be removed or placed back on the card.

  1. What a cute card and ornament design. I just love how you come up with such creative ways of making the ornaments that can be removed and still leave a gorgeous card design behind. These are both fantastic!
