Dazzling Diamonds Christmas Tree

I love how adding some Dazzling Diamonds to the Christmas Tree in the Christmas Lodge Stamp Set really makes it sparkle and gives the look of snow. 

The card base is Garden Green cardstock that was embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder.  To that I added two die cut Top Note pieces, the bottom Real Red piece is full size, and the top Whisper White piece was cut down to layer on top.  I stamped my tree in Garden Green ink and then added some Crystal Effects to the branches and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on top.  

You can also apply Dazzling Diamonds using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, or the 2-Way Glue Pen, but I like how the Crystal Effects adds almost another layer of dimension.

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Garden Green #102584, Real Red #102482, Whisper White #100730
Ink:   Real Red #103133, Garden Green #1022272
