Lovely As A Tree!

This is another Christmas I created back in April at Shackapolooza with my Stamp Shack friends.  I used  SU! Lovely as a Tree set to created this Christmas card.  The sentiment is from SU! as well.  I cased this idea from a Stamp Shack Friend, Thanh.  She created a similar card last year.

I used SU! Ballet blue ink on this card.  Every other tree was "stamped off" to make them look like they are in the background. 

I used Art Glitter Designer Adhesive glue to draw in branches in each tree and I sprinkled it with Ultrafine Royale blue glitter (by Art Glitter as well).   You can really see the sparkle and shine in this angled picture.

So, how are the holidays going for you so far?  As if things aren't hectic already, the little girl I babysit for knocked over my fully decorated Christmas tree the other day.  Thank God she didn't get hurt, but what a mess!  Did I mention I had just watered it about 2 hours prior?  Water, glass, pine needles and a mangled string of lights everywhere! I've been busy cleaning up the mess & have been slowly re-decorating it.  I still need to finish up my shopping and I have yet to start wrapping.  How many more days before Christmas?
Hope yours is going a bit better than mine! LOL!

WOW these trees are gorgeous in BLUE! So sorry about your tree! Mine got knocked down 3 times in one year by my cats- ugh broke all my grandma's ornaments! So I can feel your pain!

Beautiful card, Jennifer! The blue is striking against the crisp white background and the glitter adds to the icy winter feel -- perfect touch!!
