Christmas Tree O' Christmas Tree

Tuesday mornings are Christmas card making sessions with the girls and this week we went with a theme of vintage Christmas trees.
The papers and stamps are all from Papermania from the Silent Night range from a couple of years ago.  The papers are stunning, some have a glitter or foil finish and the traditional colours have a lovely. muted vintage feel.
I stamped the tree in Perfect Medium onto cream, gold flecked card and heat embossed the Personal Impressions verdigris powder.  I then added Liquid Pearls in white where I wanted the snow and sprinkled on Jones Tones glitter.  I used the Liquid Pearls rather than glue to create a bit of dimension.  The stamped strip behind the sentiment was stamped in the same way as the tree and the sentiment was heat embossed with gold powder.
The flowers were made with my much loved Nellie Snellen punches and the corner feature was made with a Marianne die.
A few gold gems from Papermania's Black and Gold range further highlight the corner and add a touch of bling.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sketch and Stash - #84 - sketch
Christmas Card Throwdown - make embellishments from patterned paper (I made flowers)
