My DT card for One stitch at a time challenge 84

Here is my DT card for our challenge over at One Stitch at a time Come on over and join in the fun.
We are sponsored this week by

and the prize is a £10 voucher so what are you waiting for.

I saw a similar style card to this when leaving a comment on last weeks entries, I have tried to find the link to the crafters blog but am having trouble finding it again, but I thought I would try and do something in the same style.

I started by punching some strips of red card with my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and then added some green snowflake paper from Nitwit Collections called Joyful hearts to it adding some Anitas glitterations where they joined and a glitteration dot to the top and bottom of the green paper.

I got some more red card and cut to 10.5 x 28 cm and scored at 14cm. I then added the 2 strips on each side by using double sided tape to the back of the 10.5 x 14 card and then stuck a piece of 10.5 x 14 over the back to hide where I have joined the strips.

I then decorated the front by adding some green snowflake paper to the front and edged with glitterations then added some red card on top.

Next I printed off the digi image by Stitchy Stamps which can be found HERE Its called Dear Mr Claus, aren't those penguins cute!!
I coloured the image in with the following Copics. C7, E40, R27, C00, YR21, G82 and then added some glitterations round the edge and added some polar white Flower Soft to the penguins xmas hats. I stuck the image on the card with 3d foam pads.

I printed the freebie ticket sentiment from Cuddly Buddly onto red card and cut around it before sticking with 3d foam pad to the card.

I have decorated the inside of the card with the green snowflake paper and using my nesties labels 16 dies cut a white label and a red one and matted and layered onto the green paper.
