Suspension card

I am sharing a Christmas card today.  It has a Christmas tree that appears to be floating in the window:

It is actually secured by the Merry Christmas banner that goes across the circle window.  It brings quite a lot of impact to the otherwise simple card!

If you want it to be more secured (I'm one of those paranoid), you could have two trees cut out and sandwich a string, then adhere the string between the patterned paper and the card base.  In that case, I do not recommend to have a banner go across the window, because the string can be twisted multiple times for the tree to spin.  That will be another fun technique to try.

I'm linking up my card to the following:
