Your hands must have been quite sore after all that cutting out, but totally worth it for those results.  I love this idea!

Personally, I'd leave these plain.  They look so beautiful as-is (then again, I'm also a die-hard minimalist).

wow that must have taken a lot of time to cut those babies up. They look so good! I agree on the glitter comments, but other than that, no need to dress them up!

I've just finished gluing and I've decided to leave them as is (partly because I just realized that I don't have any glitter Roll Eyes).  I made 69 total - cuz I messed up on one and 69 is a good number, anyways Wink

I just added a couple more pics of them on my blog, if you're interested.

Thanks again for all the compliments!

Brush water or water glue on the cards, then sprinkle salt on them. When the water/glue dries, it'll be just like glitter except less tacky and flashy, I think.

I'm really intrigued by the salt idea, claustrophilia.  I'm going to play with that a bit.

This is such a good idea!  And you did a great job!

I'm thinking glitter would take away from the 'flavor' of the card - just doesn't seem to fit for me but it's hard to tell without seeing it.

The first thing I thought of was taking coordinating colors of either extra fine tip markers or gel pens and randomly draw small freehand snowflakes among the dots.

Cool stuff!

I wonder if that new Crayola "Cutter" would work for something like this?
