I'm really cheating this week I admit! 
This design I used in a workshop a while ago but I just felt that it fitted the bill
 perfectly for the theme this week

1.  Place your card blank with the fold at the top. Score & fold half way along the front horizontally so that the fold is pointing upwards. (Mountain fold). This forms the easel card.
2.  Take the black piece of card & wipe it well with an anti stat bag. Using Versamark, “ink” your stamp well before stamping onto the black card. Cover with silver embossing powder & remove any stray specks of powder with a soft brush before heating with a heat tool.
3.  Trim the image to edges of design & mount onto silver mirror card with just a narrow edge showing.
4.  Add the tartan paper to the bottom of the front of the card & to the bottom of the inside. Also attach the narrow bands of silver trim. Attach the image to the front/top of the card.
5.  Stamp the silver punched circle with the appropriate sentiments taking care to line up the circular stamp! Add to the centre of the bottom tartan band using a foam pad. This forms your “stop” bar.
6.   Stamp “Noel Tags” onto the inside of the card using Versafine. Add the silver “Nailheads” to the letter of the silver embossed piece & to the bottom silver strip.   

Here's a look at the stamped inside of the card
