Pennant Parade Christmas Tree Easel Card

This was one of our Hostess Club projects this month and everyone just loved it!  It's too bad that the photo doesn't show how sparkly and joyful this little easel card looks!  I put Dazzling Diamond glitter on everything; the trees, the snowflakes, the banner, the phrase; love the sparkly!  The middle 3-D tree was made using 3 punch outs, but I think 4 would have made it look fuller, so you should try both and see which you like more.

Added 12/4/11: I posted a video showing how to make this easel card here.

Stamp Sets: Pennant Parade and Christmas Greetings
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, and Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, and Pool Party
Accessories: Big Shot Machine, Clear Circle Die, Scallop Circle Die, Petite Pennants Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Lots of Tags Sizzliets, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, 2-way glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Rhinestones, Brayer, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin Dimensionals, and Snail.

I brayered the Pool Party ink into the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder to get the blue background for the top circle and I just ran the bottom circle through the folder with no ink for a contrasting look.  Both circles had the snowflakes glittered.  The banner measured 5/8" x 3 3/4" before we cut the tails.  Everything is pretty much die cut or punched out, so it was quick, just the glittering took extra time, but well worth it for the sparkly!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for stopping by!
