Ornament cards

Here are two cards using the Tim Holtz Carved Ornaments die I made this morning. I have gotten behind in creating cards, so I might do a few more of these as they make up fairly quickly!

I stenciled the snowflake pattern on the diecut with distress ink. Next I completely covered the diecut with Versamark ink, sprinkled with sparkle powder and heat embossed to give a shiny glass-like finish to the whole piece. I added a snowflake diecut, a jewel embellishment, some ribbon trim and silver cording to tie them to a pine branch border diecut. The embossed swirl pattern on the bottom is a cuttlebug folder.  I thought about adding Stickles glitter to the pine boughs and snowflake on the ornament, but then decided I liked the "clean" look.  The sparkle in the embossing on the ornament is hard to photograph but when held sideways there is the hint of it!

 I think I like the blue one the best!
