First Christmas card- and SERIOUSLY addicted!

Well,everyone else is doing it- so why not me?!!!
Here is my first Christmas card of this year! I saw a demonstrator on Create & Craft last week make a card like this, I watched carefully and then, after several aborted attempts came up with a great template to make this step-card. They are soooo easy to make and I'll warn you- when you've made one you HAVE to make another one,then another then an......... you get the idea!!! I used My Minds Eye (I think!) double-sided paper to make panels to fit the sections of the card. I matted them onto red card and adhered them to the sections in alternate patterns. I added a strip of ribbon to the narrowest panel,with a bow and mini poinsetta with snowflake & gem trim. I cut the sentiment from glitter card (only glue the bottom half of each letter to the panel) and a large white snowflake and smaller aqua flake and layered them up with another poinsetta and gem brad. The flake was adhered with a large foam pad.I added a bow above the flake to finish. There are ENDLESS possibilities for this style of card and they give you so much room to work with! You'll be seeing lots of these over the next few months I'll guarantee (warn you) that! The ladies who are coming to my workshop on Wednesday will be making one of these!
