Sparkly Tree Easel Card

This easel card and matching envelope was made for Jan. Her hubby Alan always asks me to make a Christmas card for him to give to Jan. I was very cheeky, I borrowed her SU! Season of Joy stamp set again in order to make this card! Happily she loved the card so I'm forgiven!

The card measures 5 1/2" square and was made with SU! Old Olive CS. For the tree panel, I stamped the tree, sponged around some Old Olive and Garden Green inks and then patted VersaMark ink all over. Then I covered the entire panel with Stamp 'n Bond powder so I could add crystal glitter. It's very sparkly! I embossed the red Labels Four shape with the D'vine Swirl embossing folder. Both the red and vanilla pieces are popped up. At the top of the tree I've put a red star gem.

I used my new Labels Four Nestie dies plus a frame stamp from a Waltzingmouse Stamps set that co-ordinates with the Labels Four dies on this card. I've lightly sponged ink on the sentiment panel plus the snowflake circles. I added crystals to the snowflake centres.

Here's a photo showing the message on the back of the card. I'm loving that fun Elzybells Queen of Stamping set!
