Snowflake Card/Ornament

I have used the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp Amelia Snowflake die from the new Holiday Sparkle release, to make a Christmas card that has a" built on" ornament!...
I just love the thought of not just having someone receive a Christmas card, but how cool to have an ornament to keep...a keepsake!  I die cut the snowflake four times.  I adhered two for the front,  and two for the back side, then adhered both sides together.  I then pressed one side of the layered snowflake on my versamark pad, and then embossed with glitter embossing powder.  I repeated for the other side.  Now the snowflake will look good, no matter what side it hangs on.  I used some silver string and put a glue dot in the snowflake center to adhere to card.  I used a piece of scotch tape to adhere the string to the back of the card.  I used the CZ Design Joyful die for the card's sentiment.  I layered it, and versamarked and embossed just like the snowflake. I used one color distress ink, and made it lighter to heavier with my blending brush!   I gel penned all the snowflakes by hand, over the embossed snowflakes(made with the snowflake embossing folder I always use that is very old). The sparkle on this card is wonderful!  I just wish the sparkle showed up in the photos like it does IRL(in real life).  Here's a close up...
Here's a picture I took of it hanging on a Christmas tree...

and the reality...

  5. I'm a follower....not a very good commenter though, but I just had to say I lmao at your "reality" photo. That's awesome. Beautiful card and it is indeed cool for the recipient to have an ornament they can hang (on their own tree or at Walmart, I'm not gonna judge (: ).
