I Love Promarkers DT Card - Fancy Folds

We have a new challenge for you today at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Fancy Folds", and we're sponsored by Doctor Digi.  I decided to make a Double Dutch style card for my DT card, I've no idea why it's called this, but it's fun, and easy to make, with the added bonus of folding flat for the post.
 I made the card base from dark red card and covered it, inside and out with Lucy Cromwell Christmas papers from Papermania.  I also made a white panel for the inside for writing the message.  The sentiment label is from last year's Lucy Cromwell A4 Ultimate pack, simply matted onto more dark red card.
The image is a SWALK stamp from Crafter's Companion, coloured, of course, with Promarkers, then blinged up with plenty of Star Dust Stickles and tiny clear gems, and a border of Waterfall Stickles.
The final touch is a snowflake embellishment made with a Sizzix die and a Nellie Snellen punch, which I creased for a bit of dimension, and topped with a gem.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Penny's - #189 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Make it Sparkle
Crafty Sentiments - Add a Sentiment
Papertake - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - #120 - Fancy Folds
