My card is very similar to one I showed here, but with the addition of the printed greeting matted on to gold mirror card. Unfortunately, it isn't a good photo ... this was sent to my brother and sister-in- law for Christmas.

It is a DL card on to which I matted a piece of gold mirror card, on to which I mounted a piece of card that I had stamped with Lisa Horton's slimline 'so festive' inked with with versamark and heat embossing with gold detail powder, matting this on to a piece of gold mirror card, then on to the DL card blank, adding three golden poinsettias from Italian Options and the printed greeting panel.
