Merry Christmas Glitter Tree

Hello, all! I'd like to take a couple of days to share Christmas card ideas using the Papertrey Ink's Christmas Tree Die. For today's card, I've decorated the die cut tree with a glitter garland... Started by die cutting a Christmas tree from Distressed Dots pattern paper. Then, using a glue pen, applied glue across the front of the tree. Sprinkled with glitter and let dry. Once dry, I embellished the tree with buttons and twine.
Attached strips of Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz & Plum Pudding ribbon to a white card base. Stamped a sentiment, from Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers, in Plum pudding and then attached the tree over the ribbon with dimensional adhesive. Here's another idea: Attach strips of pattern paper instead of ribbon, to your card base.

I'll be back tomorrow with an idea that uses the left over die cut pattern paper.

Have a great one!
