How to create a stunning Suspension Card

• Dental floss
• 1 1/4" circle punch
• 1 3/8" circle punch
• Cardstock for card base

• Cardstock for the layer that your suspended image will be nestled in

• Ink
• Stamps
• Sticky Tape


1.  Use a 1 3/8" circle punch (or other large shape) to make a window in the cardstock layer.

2.  Position the cardstock layer on the card base and mark where the punched window is.

3.  Punch out a circle on your card base with the same circle punch.

4.  Stamp two images and punch them out with the 1 1/4" circle punch (or other smaller punch).

5.  Apply Sticky Tape to the back of both punched images.

6.  Apply Sticky Tape over and under the punched window on the cardstock layer.

7.  Tape a piece of dental floss on the backside of your cardstock layer, centering it in the punched opening.

8.  Take one of the 1 1/4" circle images, center it in the 1 3/8" window and tape it to the dental floss.

Add an extra layer of Sticky Tape over the tape holding the floss down. 

9.  Flip cardstock layer around. Add second 1 1/4" circle image, line it up with the back of the first image and tape it down.

10.   Apply more adhesive, and adhere cardstock layer to the card base.
        Make sure the 1 3/8" windows line up.

11.  Finish decorating the card.
