Christmas ornament card

In every year around the Christmas time we have in our local Community Center a Christmas party to our older citizens. I decided to make them a little card to remember the event. I wanted to be something different then usual card so I did an ornament card. On one side it have a cute Christmas Mouse by Elizabeth O.Dulemba and on other side a little poem and date. 
I really wish that I'd have a die cut machine :) To cut out 120 circles with scissors... And seems that I have to make some more cards. Organisers think that there are 60 participants but just in case it is better to have some extra card then someone don't get it. 
The front and the back side of the cards are put together with foam tape. I cut narrow strips of tape and put it along the side so the golden string can be placed between two cards and around the side. The floral swirls are printed on the paper I added some clue and sprinkled it with glitter. The tinker on the mouse hat is covered with Ranger Glossy Accents. One sad thing happened that I couldn't count before making the cards. I put on the edges of the hat and the coat a white Enamel accents by Ranger but it run out before all the cards was done :( Now some cards have it and other are without. It is sad but I hope to get it more before the party :) On the photo has only some of the cards
