I've finally got round to playing with some of the lovely stash in the latest Docrafts goody bag, it's a cracker again this time, I can't wait to delve deeper into it!
 The papers and stamps are both from Papermania's First Noel range, the papers are beautiful, some have gorgeous foiling, and the poinsettia stamp is nice and big.
I stamped the poinsettia onto patterned paper several times, heat embossed with gold powder, cut out, and layered up with foam pads for dimension.  The sentiment was heat embossed with the same powder, using a stamp from the same set, I added a length of ribbon behind it.
The rest of the card was just a simple mat and layer job, using the First Noel papers and matte gold card, with corners cut with a Nellie Snellen die for interest on the innermost mat.
To finish off, I added some gold gems to the flower's centre and a gem either side of the sentiment.
