From the pictures it looks as if I have used a black and white gingham check paper to cover the front of the card but "in real life" it is actually bottle green, perhaps not the most vibrant colour to use on a Christmas card!
I used Christmas pudding toppers from The Works (6 for £1). I covered the brown pudding part and holly leaves with a layer of Ranger Glossy Accents and small, red buttons to cover the holly berries, to help make the pudding stand out a bit more.
I put foam pads behind the pudding for more dimension and then mat and layered it on red check, white, plain red and finally silver with a little faux stitching added using a black fine liner pen for good measure. Not an awful lot of skill or work required, but very quick if you need to make something at the very last minute.
