Blue Sparkly Tree Merry Christmas Card

Another sparkly Christmas card to add to the box.  I started off with an A6 Baja Breeze card but I chopped some off the right hand side and used a snowflake border punch to add a decorative edge.  I stamped the tree with Night of Navy ink and stamped the swoosh underneath to ground the tree with Baja Breeze ink.  I used Heat and Stick powder before sprinkling on Dazzling Diamonds to make the whole panel sparkly.  I added a thin mat of Night of Navy CS, stamped the sentiment and added a navy strip next to the snowflake border.  To finish off the card front I added clear rhinestones to the snowflakes.

I glued a white panel inside the card but I felt that the part that was visible from the front looked too stark so I stamped the Texture wheel stamp in Baja Breeze.  Much better, just takes that starkness away!  I added a navy strip, stamped the sentiment, rounded the corners and added some punched snowflakes.  I stamped a snowflake border on the front of the envelope.
