The outside features a stamp from Seasonally Scattered stamp set from Stampin' Up! and a die cut word using a die from Ellen Hutson's Essentials by Ellen - Merry & Bright. The paper has metallic accents and the focal was embossing in silver to match. 

The interior holds a sentiment from Stampendous.

The snowflakes, sequins, brad and twine complete the look. This is not my usual style but that's what Pinterest is for right?
