This is my take on the challenge:

I took the largest ornament from our Ornaments 2 set...and stamped it on some shrinky dink film, using versamark, and red embossing powder, carefully cut out the ornament, punch a hole for hanging the thread, and then followed the instructions and I shrunk it in the toaster oven....it came out a little smaller than I expected....if I was going to do it again...I would make a smaller card base...
I rippled the ribbon by fraying the end, and finding a thread, and then pulling on that middle thread causing the ribbon to scrunch up... such a neat little trick, and viola you have a fancy ribbon... 
 The Ornament shows up here...and the Spellbinders is the new fancy rectangles die, and the Noel is from the Cardinal Ornament.

 The ornament shrunk to quite the small size.....it tells you on the package, the little poinsettia is a button...which I cut off the loop on the back and glued on with a glue gun...the leaves are from a Christmas sprig...

How clever to put the largest ornament on shrinky dink!! So festive and beautiful Jan!! It will be a treat for the recipient.

Barb Pace said...

WOW, Jan, I never heard of shrinky dink. How awesome is this. The finished ornament is awesome. I love the papers you used, and the holly leaves and red ribbon. Just a beautiful card. It has been so much fun working with you and others this past month. Have a blessed day :)

So cute, Jan! I have some of that stuff and when I tried it my image came out way smaller than I thought it would! I love your ribbon technique, why didn't I think of that! I'll have to copy you! Blessings! Kathy
