Christmas Glitter Tree

This is one of the cards we will be creating at my Cardmaking class in December.  You can't really see it, but the tree has tiny pieces of glitter on the tree.  I used Stampin' Up!'s glitter- Dazzling Diamonds and it is so lovely and fine.  In fact some of it spilt onto my carpet and I loved the look of it, I was a bit sad to vacuum it up!

I stamped the En Francais in the background using Crumbcake ink.  I wanted it so light that I stamped it onto some scrap paper so it was very feint.   I then stamped one of the trees from the Lovely as a Tree set.  I got my glue pen and dotted the glue where I wanted the glitter, I then sprinkled the glitter over it, tapped off the excess and there it was. 

The ribbon was easy, as I just cut off a small piece and tied it with twine.  As for the greeting, the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set came in handy as the Word Window Punch can be used for all of the greetings.

Below was my first attempt, however, I feel it looks a bit 'busy'
