I made this card for Day 9 of OnlineCardClasses.com. The theme was snowflakes and I swear I meant to use them, but Caly Person's easel card technique was the most compelling part and when I went to add the snowflakes at the end, they just didn't seem to fit.
I shopped my stash for this card and some of the items I used are on sale/clearance right now, so it might be worth a look.

I adhered patterned paper to the front of an A2 card and cut out an arch using the Spellbinders, Essential Arches. Then I took that arch and the next larger one and cute out a bunch of frames to build my scene in.
In Caly Person's card, she used vellum as a backer which would have added stability, but I wanted it to be see through so tripled up the tree and then created a tri-fold card out of 2 A2 top-folding cards so I could let the glitter paper be a backdrop to the tree scene.
The tree was really simple. I cut out the base of the tree with the Spellbinders, O Christmas Tree Die and then created the snow by using the Spellbinders, Layered Christmas Tree Stencil. I sponged white pigment ink through the stencil and then topped it with iridescent embossing powder.
