Merry Patterned Pines Trio Card

A Christmas card I made using the lovely SU! Patterned Pines set.  I stamped the trees in Old Olive, Riding Hood Red and Always Artichoke using markers and the trunks were inked with an Early Espresso marker.  I cut each tree out and popped them up behind a glittered torn CS snow bank.  I embossed the red background panel with the Sizzix 'Sugar' embossing folder and added the Old Olive taffeta ribbon before gluing the red panel to the card front.  I added mini gold brads to the corners of the image panel and I popped the panel up.  I stamped 'merry', punched it out with the Word Window punch, trimmed it,  punched a tiny hole and tied it to the ribbon knot with white twine.

The Patterned Pines set includes a lovely small poinsettia flourish stamp which I used inside the card to frame the sentiment.  That gorgeous snowflake on the envelope flap is also from the set.
