Christmas tree - stepped up

This is a more detailed version of Thursday’s card. It uses the same masking technique but has the addition of a background stamp on the top four fifths of the Bordering Blue panel. I also trimmed the front of the card short, so that I could add a strip of Night of Navy and a scalloped edge of Real Red.

This card, too, has glitter on the tree branches, but I don’t know if you can see it in the photo. If you click on it, it should give you a larger view but I'm not making any promises! 

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, En Francais
Cardstock: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy, Bordering Blue
Accessories: Stampin’ Pastels, Stampin’ Glitter, Red Gingham ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch
