I love a "fancy fold" card.  Not a card that requires 9 tools, 200 folds and lots of confusing directions.  (Minor exaggeration). But I do like a card that has an interesting opening.  

Today's card fits that description.

I cut away 1 1/2" from the top half of this card.  I used the 2" circle punch to create a partial opening to reveal the manger scene.

The star is revealed when you open the card flap.  I borrowed the 'sparkle lines' around the star from the Holiday Catalog stamp set "Star of Light".  

I created this look by sponging Soft Sky ink over the majority of the white cardstock. I then sponged Pool Party, concentrating on the upper portion and outside edges.  I ended with sponging Marina Mist ink along the very top. 

I wanted the colors to stand out so I chose Basic Black ink for the images. The Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper stars were created using the Confetti Stars Punch.

I sentiment fit perfectly on the remainder of the card flap and the Pool Party 3/8" satin ribbon works perfectly with this simple color palette.
