I used the template inside (meant for cutting your photo to the correct shape) to cut a couple of pieces of white card for each bauble. On the ones for the front, I embossed a Hero Arts cling stamp called 'Snowflakes' in white, then blended 'Tumbled Glass' and 'Faded Jeans' Distress Inks over the top. I added a snowman (from the 'Holly Jolly' set by Penny Black) to one, and 'Winter Pup' (by Hero Arts) to the other. On the others, I stamped my Penny Black 'wishes ornament' sentiment stamp in black, embossed some more of the Hero Arts snowflakes around the edges, before blending the same Distress Inks over the top. Before I assembled them, I poured in some 'Polar White' Flowersoft for 'snow'.
I found these quite difficult to photograph...as the light was reflecting off the plastic...and I had to stand them in little tealight holders to keep them upright! Here are some close-ups:
