Trees & Snowman Joyful Christmas Season Card - 52 {C}CT June Embellishment Challenge

We've got a fab embellishment challenge for you at 52 {C}CT this week - Jacqueline has chosen sequins and pearls.


I knew I wanted to use sequins as ornaments on Christmas trees and I was so chuffed to find that my sequins were the perfect size for the Hero Arts tree stamp I chose to use!  I made a Baja Breeze A6 card base, tore white CS for snow, stamped the sentiment and glittered the snow edges with Star Dust Stickles.  I tucked the trees behind the snow and popped up a cheery snowman.  I punched red stars to top the trees and added gold sequins to the star centres.  I then punched tiny snowflakes and added pearls to the centres to complete the card front.

Here's the inside and the envelope with more sequin ornament trees - I loved them on the card so couldn't resist popping another one inside and on the envelope flap!  Can you tell I had a very happy time putting this card together?!

I hope you'll play along with us at 52 {C}CT this week with our embellishment challenge, sequins and pearls can be classy and elegant or fun and whimsical so what will you make?  I'd love to visit your blogs to see your fab creations!  Please check out the cards from the other DT members, there's bound to be lots of inspiration there!
