Glittered Bauble

Hello fellow crafters. I hope your preparations for the big day are well
in hand, and you are not feeling too stressed.

Several years ago, I was asked by a large scrapbooking/paperart store in Sydney
to demonstrate at a 4 day craft show. One of the techniques was using black
peel-off stickers, d/sided adhesive paper, ultrafine glitter, and Promarkers.
I decided to revive the technique for 2 of my Christmas cards, and this is
one of them. It is such a fun technique, and the resulting shimmer is 
amazing, but it does not photograph very well.

The red borders, I promise, are perfectly straight, but the card was
lying on an uneven surface when I photographed it.

A close-up view of the coloured bauble. It is so much prettier IRL.

The snowflake and sentiment were die cut from a sheet of 
glittered fun-foam.
