Just showing off the Christmas card we sent this year - Mistletoe!. We do ~75 glass cards each year, and I use it as an excuse to try something new and fun (this year it was wire wrapping).

Oh wow, I never would have thought to use glass on a card!  Is it difficult to send or do you hand deliver?

This is lovely, by the way.

I use rubber cement to attach the glass to the cards (so people can remove them to use as ornaments, pendants, or pins) and mail them using padded envelopes. No casualties that I know of! The glass isn't as fragile as it looks.

Great idea and great execution!   I wish I was on your Christmas card list!  Can you post some pictures of your past Christmas cards too?
