A Sunsational Christmas Tree

I love Christmas and making Christmas cards!
When I saw this Flourish Christmas Tree stamp at Sunsational Stamps I knew it had potential for elegance.  I was inspired to create this simple yet elegant card.


I stamped the image with a light silver gray ink so that it wouldn't show through the gold glitter gel pen that I used to trace over the image...but if I had a sparkly gold ink pad I would have used that instead.  I matted the image on a shiny metallic red cardstock to accentuate the ornaments that I colored with Christmas Red Stickles which also give the ornaments a little dimension and sparkle.  I added a gold rhinestone to the star at the top of the tree to make it shine.  At the base of the tree I added a bow made from a red metallic cord.  The "Merry Christmas" stamp is from the Christmas Greetings stamp set from Hot Off The Press.
