Metallic Christmas Trees

Busy, busy week so it was nice to get some time to craft yesterday and add another Christmas card to the stash.

I used the colour challenge set by Dynamic Duos - Navy & Silver, and have kept it fairly simple.  The trees have been cut from a coke can, using a Cuttlebug folder, it's a great way to add metal to your cards, but a word of warning I have in the past broken a good sturdy punch trying to do this, and so would only recommend you do it on a Big Shot or other die-cutting machine. I've added some stickles glitter to the snow line as they also wanted "Bling" - so hope it's blingy enough!

Here's the details:

Cardstock - SU Night of Navy; Whisper White
Ink - SU Night of Navy
Sentiment - don't know sorry, an old clear stamp from my stash

I'm also entering this card into the challenge at Less is More, which this week is Glamour & Glitz.

Thanks for popping in
