Here's a different idea for a card. I used vellum for the front cover and green Bazzill Bling cardstock for the back. They are held together with a piece of red cardstock and stitched with a sewing machine. I stamped snowflakes on the vellum with Brilliance Platinum Planet ink and the "Joy to the World" sentiment is from TAC's stamp set, Christmas Blessings.
Hope this inspires you in some way. Have a great week!
