For my card, I made a Swinging Z-Fold  card. There is a tutorial for this HERE. My card started as a 4.5 x 12 piece of vanilla Bazzill. I made the main card fold 6 1/8 inches from the right side and the Z fold 2 7/8 inches from the left side.  I added a red piece of dp to the left and a turquoise piece on the right. Per the tutorial, I opened the fold and die cut half of the ornament thru the left front. For the ornament itself, on coordinating dp, I stamped and embossed the ornament image then die cut using the new Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament die. With a craft knife, I cut out little openings inside the embossing.  I stamped another ornament on a patterned piece of the dp and placed the patterned ornament behind the embossed one and attached it on top of the half ornament cut in the card.

Though technically the top pic is the front, if you unfold the left, it looks a little plain. So to dress it up a little, I attached a frame left from die cutting the patterned ornament . I also added a few pine bough images in a couple of the corners.

On the inside, I added a smaller ornament w/ the greeting on the backside of the large ornament.
