Super Glam Lovely as a Tree

Hey Stampers,

Good day ! Another quick Christmas card today !! This card is SUPER quick actually, but is SO impressive ... love when that combination gets together, don't you ?? LOL It uses the old faithful Lovely as a Tree stamp set, paired with the Curly Cute and Itty Bitty Bits sets. But the main attraction to this card is all the GLITTER !! It is sparkly beyond belief, using both the Red Glimmer Paper and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Have a look !! 


Isn't that beyond gorgeous !?!? I saw an idea something like this on Christine Pyrch's blog (www.christinepyrch.bogspot.com) but I decided to super glam it !! First I stamped the tree image in Basic Gray and then added the little bird from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set in Real Red. The Season's Greetings from the Curly Cute set was stamped in Basic Black on a separate piece of Whisper White. I added some Silver Brads and popped this up with dimensionals below the trees. Then this layer got put on a piece of the fabulous Red Glimmer Paper. Isn't that so beautiful !?! Love that paper. I wouldn't normally use it as a full layer, but the stamped image was so simple and elegant, I thought that would really make it pop. And I was right !! LOL One tip when using the Glimmer Paper, you really need to use Glue Dots to adhere it, then it really sticks !! The whole thing got added to a Basic Gray card base. Before I called it finished, I took my 2 Way Glue Pen and filled in some Ice and Snow on the ground and in the trees. Then I sprinkled the Dazzling Diamonds glitter over it so make a beautiful wintery scene. Love this card !! Nothing like some glitter to know that its Christmas !! LOL

I hope you enjoyed this simple but stunning card today !! Thanks for coming by and Happy Stamping !!
