Sparkly Christmas

I'm still in Christmas mode (need to stop this trend soon and make some other cards). Anyway, this card is for the sketch given for Always playing with paper 7:

I love making Christmas cards that involve stamping, but I need to make a lot of cards (with what we send and what I sell I usually make about 600 Christmas cards), so I need to be able to make some that don't take too long, but still look presentable enough for people to want to buy them. So I succumbed again recently to buying a Christmas TSV from QVC, so this card uses some white and gold foiled card in the background. The image has been layered and decoupaged. The strip of green across the middle is a piece of PM A Christmas Carol. The baubles and stars are glittered on top of the foiling.

I'm also linking this for:
