CHNC challenge 186: layer it up

This week's CHNC challenge 186 is 'layer it up' - more than one layer on your Christmas creation - easy, peasy! It's very hot in this part of the UK atm, so I think we need something easy to craft ... and a further opportunity to build up the supply of Christmas cards - of course, you might not have started your Christmas cards to do so - perhaps I can tempt you with this challenge.

For my card I've used an offcut upcycled from a Christmas gift pad (the card with text on), some offcut pieces of My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas and some more of those stickers that were used last week - while supplies were out on my worktop I decided to make a few similar cards, so, yes, you did see one a bit like this for last week's challenge (and, watch this space, because there'll be a similar one for next week's challenge):

This is also for:
