Classy Cards Merry Trees

Hi, this is my design for the current Classy Cards 'n Such challenge.  The challenge is Polka Dots and I hope you can come join us this week for a chance to win a great prize!

I started with the paper.  Most of my Christmas polka dot papers were a little too overwhelming but then I found these beautiful papers in my Authentique Tradition Stack.  The tiny dots look like falling snow.

The trees were cut from green card stock using Impression Obsession's Evergreen Trees die.  The die cuts three trees but this card needed another so I cut the smallest one twice.  Two of the larger trees were popped up with Joy! Foam pads to create dimension.

I cut the word Merry out of red paper using Impression Obsession's Alphabet Plain Upper Case die.

The Memory Box Sparkling Snowflake Corner die cut was covered in Stickles.  I also glued tiny rhinestones to the centers.

I cut the circles using Spellbinders Large & Small Classic Circle sets.  I cut a hole in the ornament paper with the larger die and then cut a hole out of red card stock with the smaller die and glued the pieces together.  The panel was popped up with Joy! Foam Pads to create the little scene inside the circle.  It reminds me of a snow globe.

Thanks for looking!

A very pretty card, Jenny. I love how you put the circle with the trees to the one side.
