Look what I found at the Swarovsky store! These silver snowflake ornaments come in a set of 3 and I decided to split them up, to make each one of them a perfect gift for a special teacher or friend at Christmas time. (I will make sure I mention in the note that the snowflake is an ornament, so that no one throws it out inadvertently!)
The crystals are set right into the snowflake - you can see them on both sides of the snowflake. I'm sure they'll be lovely on a Christmas tree, but equally pretty hanging in a window, catching the sunlight. Photographing the beautiful sparkle of the crystals is clearly beyond my photographic (or even my limited Photoshop) skills, but trust me, it's BEAUTIFUL!
I decided to make the gift part of the card. I will enclose the white satin ribbon that comes with the snowflake. The cards will have to go into a box, to ensure that they are not scratched or damaged.
I used Enchanted Evening glimmer cardstock, to keep it very simple. I had to 'stack' 3 glue dots to allow for the bumpy back side of the ornament. I will link this up to this week's Less is More challenge, to use hardware.
