Let It Snow Glass Bauble Card

This card measures 3.25ins x 7ins and is made using a hand cut white linen effect card blank.
Let it snow glass bauble cardI made this card way back in August, and it's been waiting for it's "Grand Unveiling" ever since!!!!

When the “bauble” was dry I carefully cut round the edges and then cut a thin piece of blue card and layered it on silver mirror card.  I found the centre of the card and drew a line down the middle, sticking another piece of mirror card at the bottom for the top of the bauble followed by a dollop of PVA glue to the back of the bauble to stick it down.

All that was needed then was a doodled bow and a bit of “fiddlefart” writing … very less is more …. and if I say so myself … I love it!

Hi Helen. Love this. As you say, less is more. I wish I could do my hand writing as well as you do! Take care.
