handmade christmas cards

I'ts been a while since my last post - work has that nasty habit of taking over! 
Anyway, I have decided to make my family christmas cards 
(with the intention of actually finishing them - this year!) 
I was inspired by some lovely examples of handmade cards that I found online
'homemade gifts made easy'. 

I used designer paper, which I cut into the various bauble shapes. I then applied a little glitter with PVA to parts of the bauble to make it look a bit more festive. Although I usually buy my cards pre-cut, I printed the messages onto ivory linen card using an ink jet printer, then cut and folded them to size. I used double sided tape to attach the ribbon and a hot glue gun to attach the bow and diamante.
