A Festival of Trees full of JOY and Sparkles!

Hello... I have not one, but two pretty and sparkly cards to share today. What could be better?! I can't seem to ever get tired of glittering up my projects! I was playing around with the Star Confetti Border Punch, and I saw my Tree punch and... the light bulb went off! I punched the tree over part of the border of punched stars. 
I thought it would look nice layered over a piece of gold glimmer paper... I decided to use Blackberry Bliss for my background colour, it looks so striking with the mix of gold and white. Very crisp and clean. I added a couple of strips of gold on either side of the white strip for some more sparkle.  
My background Blackberry Bliss was embossed with the "On Point" textured impressions embossing folder - since it coordinated perfectly with the tree punch. This is one of my favourite cards that I made this season!

Since I really liked how the first card turned out, so pretty and sparkly... I decided to make another but change up the colours and style a bit. I used Pacific Point and Whisper White this time with some Silver glimmer added for the sparkle. I stamped the background with the snowflake image from the Holiday home stamp set in both Pacific Point and Soft Sky classic inks. I punched a 3 trees using Silver Glimmer paper to mat under my Pacific Point Trees with the stars punched out. I tore some Whisper White cardstock to make "snow" at the bottom of my card to place my 3 trees onto. I added some Dazzling Details to make the snow glistening... it's a super sparkly card - I love it!
Here's a close up of the pretty, sparkly trees. A nice pop of silver sparkles! Well, I hope you like my share and will give this fun idea a try... enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'm off to work!! See you tomorrow with some more Christmas projects :)
