I made a couple of these for my card exchange group. I started with a soft gray textured cardstock. I mounted this wonderful gold, taupe and gray handmade paper I got quite a while ago. I really like the damask type design on the paper. I found that the POW gold glitter paper matched it really well. I placed a black on white greeting along the bottom edge, mounted a strip of gold glitter paper perpendicular to the the greeting and then placed a black MS snowflake punchie where they cross. It's held in place with a tiny black brad.
