Digital Ink Co has it's 3rd challenge and has given us a Color Theme to follow. It looks like a deep blue, a mint green and a brownish tone. So I used dark blue glitter with a border of mixed glitter which becomes brown, mounted on a Textura sienna brown cardstock (although my screen looks like it has a pinkish cast to it). The dots on the tree are the mint green and the leaves on the inside are mint greenish tone.

So to start with I lay a piece of Sookwang double sided tape onto a piece of white cardstock. Lay my brass stencil on top and sprinkled the bronze mixed with some black Ritz micro fine glitter. Removed the stencil carefully. (See tricks and techniques for using glitter with brass stencils in the Nitty Gritty gallery)

Blended 3 colors for the sky, Blue teal, Royal Blue & Stardust. Trimmed my design, then added the dots on the trees (to mimic lights) using a Sakura Soufflé pen, first in white then in the minty green. Cut the under piece with a Nestabilities Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle (largest one), putting some tape around the edges prior cutting. Then added the glitter. Adhered it to the card.

 

 

The right side of the card slips under the left and is almost the full width of the card. I rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire Design), which I had first cut apart into individual words using Versafine stamp pad Black Onyx. The word "Christmas" was longer than my side panel so I cut a curved slit to hold the left side closed.

On the inside I used a piece of blue marble stationary and rubber stamped the leaf flourish, also Quietfire design, with some Versa Magic and  Versafine greens and Blue Lagoon for the flourishes.
