Keep reading to see what went into making this card :) (Picture tutorial)

For the sentiment on this card I used the "Joyful Tidings" stamp.

I stamped it in clear VersaMark then added gold embossing powder then heated it.
(I made a few extras at the same time to use on other cards)

I then used my cuttlebug to cut out the shape I wanted around the sentiment stamp.

I added a white cardstock to the base of the card then glued a smaller pattern cardstock paper over top.

I then added a large strip of shimmer ribbon then added a smaller piece of green sparkle ribbon then a smaller one of gold sparkles on top. I really like to give dimension to my cards. This is a quick and easy way to do so.
