Ornaments Card

Made this card for my sister and her husband. I need to get it in the mail!  Last year half of the card I sent her got returned to me by the post office, minus the gift card that I had enclosed!  This year I'm enclosing a small piece of art, so hopefully the envelope will arrive intact.  

I really dug into my stash to create a card for these challenges.  The ornament idea is quite popular on Instagram right now.  So new idea but old materials from my stash.

A local architect donated to us some material called transparent film although it's really more translucent and reminds me of Mylar.  We experimented with it, making Gelli plate prints.  I found this piece and decided it would make pretty ornaments. In addition to the Tim Holtz ornament dies, I cut a smaller circle die from Spellbinders Nestabilities and added a top from Tim's ornaments dies.  

Materials used:

white Posca Pen to splatter snow
American Crafts Metallic Marker Gold
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection Retro Holiday CMS067
Tsukneko Dew Drop Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations die Carved Ornaments
Stampin' Up Night of Navy cardstock
Gelli Plate print on transparent film substrate using pink, white and blue acrylic paints
