This is another gorgeous die that's part of the October new release from Die-Versions, called Tannenbaum. For this card, I cut two die cut shapes so I could cut out the tree separately. Once the tree itself was cut out, I applied Sparkle N Sprinkle embossing powder (Forest Green) all over it. I did this twice in order to make it darker and smoother. Then I adhered it to the second die cut piece.
Spica glitter pens. The strings of lights are only attached at the top so the light bulbs stand out for more dimension. I also colored the pot with Copics, fussy cut it out and pop dotted it. The star is covered with gold glitter and pop dotted as well. The sentiment is an old Creative Memories clear sticker that was in my stash. The photo on the right shows how shiny the embossing powder makes this card look in person and you can see the lights better.
For this particular card, I focused on the tree itself, but there are so many other ways you can use this die and get a totally different feel.
