Saturday 411 sketch Challenge #225

Noice that the Christmas tree is 3-D but if you want to insert the card into an envelope all you have to do is flatten the tree.  Don't worry it will pop right back up with just a brief "fluffing' of the branches.  The Christmas tree on this card is cased from Mary Fish's 3-D Christmas tree made with the Petite Pennant Builder punch. 
Mary has made a great video demonstrating this technique and you can view it at .  The Lace Ribbon Border punch was used makes the two embellishments at the top and bottom of the card instead of plain card stock and DSP.  I added some gold Stampin'UP! gold glitter for the star.  I wasn't sure if I liked this card until it was finished but the sparkle of the gold glitter and the Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon tie everything together.
