Oh Christmas Tree!

Hi there, I'm back today with a card for the challenge over at Christmas Craft Creations

This month our theme is Black and White with one other color.  

My other color is green. My camera was getting repaired last week, so again, there are no step by step photos. I was looking through my Christmas die stash and I came upon the Your Next Die - Christmas Tree die, which I don't think I have ever used. So I decided to make my card with snowy hills, dotted with Christmas trees.

I took scraps of white cardstock and applied 2 1/2 inch double stick tape, before running it through the machine with the die. The Christmas trees had the protective backing removed and then Misty Isles glitter was applied to the sticky adhesive. The rest of the protective backing was then removed and Bridal glitter was applied for the snowy hill. I did this three times. One was taped down to the black (sky) panel, that I found on my desk. Then I cut up the other two and staggered the hills and trees so that the layers were different from each other. 

The sentiment from Hero Arts CL343 was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Detail embossing powder. It was die cut with a Lawn Fawn labels die. I stuck this on to the sticky surface of the last hill before applying the Bridal glitter.

The scene was layered on to a matching piece of green cardstock and was then layered to a white card base. A green ribbon completed the card for today.
