HERE and HERE ). To make this ornament I used a die cut machine to cut an oval from #6 plastic. Then I used permanent markers to draw and color in the details. After the ink was dried, I punched a hole in the top of the ornament, poked a skewer through it and heated the plastic with my heat gun. If you've used shrink plastic before, this #6 plastic works similarly. As it heats it starts to shrink, curl and then uncurls leaving you with a smaller version of the original design. After the ornament was cooled, I used a wire hanger and hung it from the center of an embossed cardbase with a snowflake window. I am submitting this card for the current challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and for the recycle element challenge over at Jingle Belles.
