Honey I shrunk the plastic!

Sorry I'm a bit late today with my Try it on Tuesday challenge creation.
John had an early appointment at the hospital for a routine check up and I didn't get around to scheduling the post.
Anyway better late than ever here is my card.

It's a wild card challenge this week with the theme of using shrink plastic on whatever you decide to create.
I chose a card because I really need to get some more Christmas cards made. I cut out the stamped shrink plastic image using a nestie and "cooked"  it in the oven after my heat gun attempt didn't provide a good enough result. I made up an aperture card using nesties and the grand calibre. The flourish is a spellbinders. The paper is My Minds Eye. I was happy with the result so made up a few similar ones yesterday to boost my stock.
Hope you decide to join us and have some fun shrinking some plastic. If you need some inspiration please pay a visit to the challenge blog to check out the fabulous DT creations.

I'm off now to get some more Christmas cards done while I'm in the mood.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy the rest of the day.
