To make the trees, I covered both sides of a piece of white cardstock with adhesive using my Xyron, then cut 8 trees using the largest tree die from Karen's Evergreen Pivot card set. I scored them down the center, then folded them and removed the release paper from the mountain fold side. I adhered them to each other (4 die cuts = 1 tree), carefully aligning the edges. After the trees were assembled, I removed the inside release paper and covered them with glitter. The silk microfine glitter is so fine that it adheres to the Xyron adhesive perfectly. No mess!
I created the filigree frames the same way, cutting them from cardstock that had adhesive on both sides, then adhering one side to the card. After all the frames were in place, I removed the top layer of release paper and covered the frames with glitter. I have to give full credit to Karen for this brilliant idea. It makes sticking down intricate dies so easy.
I hope you can see how pretty all that glitter is. Be sure and click on the photos for larger views. It's one of those cards that just lights up in person!
All the supplies I used to make my card are available at Elizabeth Craft Designs and Simon Says Stamp.
