Triangle Trees Season's Greetings Card

This is a Christmas card I made using my Plain Pennant Framelits dies to make trees.  I started off  by stamping my Hero Arts Tree Trunk stamp onto Creamy Caramel CS, cut out three trunks and glued them to the card behind a torn CS snowbank.  I stamped the sentiment and sprinkled glitter along the top of the snow.  I then die cut three triangles using different patterned papers, sponged the edges of each triangle with inks and popped them up over the trunks.  I added blue punched snowflakes with rhinestone centres to the card front and added red pearls to the tree in the middle.

A stamped sentiment and more punched snowflakes are inside the card and I stamped a cluster of snowflakes on the envelope flap.

Stamps: SU! Curly Cute set, Woodware Wishing You clear stamp, PSX Snowflake Medley
CS: PaperMania cream square card blank, SU! Whisper White & Creamy Caramel
Patterned paper: old Basic Grey papers, Bo Bunny Avocado Dot paper
Ink: SU! Early Espresso, Adirondack Cranberry, Tim Holtz Peeled Paint & Fired Brick Distress Inks
Tools: Sizzix, 'Banners, Plain Pennants' Framelits dies, Woodware small snowflake punch, sponge daubers
Embellishments & accessories: SU! Dazzling Diamonds, red pearls, clear rhinestones, 3d foam pads
