To make the card, cut out one of the large stained glass windows and a large greeting.  Mount both pieces onto larger pieces of silver metallic card with double-sided tape and trim round with a craft knife and ruler to leave a small border.

Take a length of silver 26 gauge silver-coloured craft wire and make a little loop at one end with round-nosed pliers.  I've used some silver-coloured pearl beads here, a lilac heart-shaped bead and one white pearl bead but use whatever you have - the lilac heart bead could be replaced by a little snowflake punched from glitter card with a gem on the front perhaps?

Thread a silver pearl onto the wire, then the heart bead, then another silver pearl.  At this point, add a strip of double-sided tape to the back of the greeting piece and stick the craft wire to it so that it goes right up to the beads you've already threaded.  

When you've done that, add two further silver beads, then your white pearl, then two more silver ones.  Add double-sided tape to the back of the stained glass window piece and stick the craft wire to it as before.

Add one more silver bead so that it sits at the top of the stained glass window piece, then thread the craft wire back through it to make a loop, sticking the end to the back of the stained glass window.

Add sticky pads to the back of both the stained glass window and greeting, then stick to a white textured A6 card blank.
