Christmas Card Club Challenge #2 - The Real Reason For The Season

Hi Crafters,
Here I am again with my CCC card. This time the theme was chosen by Christine and she has picked ' The Real Reason For The Season'.
I have gone for a cute look this time rather than the traditional Nativity scene using a fabulous digital download from Pink Gem Designs which creates the whole shaped 3d card.

 I printed this on white pearlescent cardstock but I'm not sure that it shows up here. It is a tent fold card and hinges behind the star. The images were cut out, layered up and I added white matt glitter to the lambs for their wool. This side view might give you more of an idea of the layers...

There is a panel on the back to put your message or greeting and it fits inside an 8" x 8" envelope.
Hope you can join in with us for this challenge and get your Christmas cards started for this year, it's a great way to spread the load of all the Christmas cards that we have to make.
