Oh! Christmas Tree

I've made this card for Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Oh! Christmas Tree' and have used the current sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches.  I've had the Christmas tree die for a while but have never used it so I'm entering Darnell's NBUS Challenge.  The paper and card are from my snippets drawer, so I'm also popping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk 
Stamp: Hot off the Press (magazine freebie)
Die: Marianne Designs Creatables 'Christmas Tree' and Snowflake (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine Majestic Blue
Snippets: White pearl card, tree paper, blue gem

I trimmed the tree paper to size, stamped the sentiment along the bottom and attached it to the front of the card blank.  I die-cut two Christmas trees and one snowflake and attached them to the card following the sketch.  The bottom tree was attached directly onto the card and I used Pinflair glue on the second tree to give a little dimension.  The snowflake was attached by the centre only and to finish I added a blue gem.
