Poppystamps Oh Christmas Tree!

inside of card

I wanted to make a festive card with traditional red and green colors. Here I "layered' a tree on top of a tree by using the Small Flourish Tree die cut on the inside of a shaker card, then created a tree window with the Crafty Tree Background die. I adhered sequins to the flourish tree so some tree ornaments will be visible instead of all falling to the bottom of the shaker.  A star tree-topper with center rhinestone completes the flourish tree.  Shaved ice,  Christmas snow, glitter jumbo and a few sequins were placed on the inside of the shaker to simulate snow.  For front sentiment I added the word joy and used a glaze pen to give it some shine. Christmas trees do indeed give me JOY!
