Glittery Snowflake Card

Hi all! I hope you are all well! I have a quick Christmas card to share using new Sizzix dies by Basic Grey, from the 25th & Pine collection.
I was in the mood for glittery snowflakes and used Sizzix adhesive sheets for the snowflakes. Adhere one side of the sheet to patterned paper and die cut four snowflakes using the Snowflakes #3 die. Glue the snowflakes to the background patterned paper. Remove the top protective layer from the snowflakes and sprinkle with glitter.
Here's a close up of one of the snowflakes. Instant glitter and it all stays stuck. The stars were die cut from Specialty Stamping paper with the Labels & Snowflakes Thinlits set. Leave the paper in the die and dry emboss it using this sandwich: multipurpose platform tab 1, Impressions Pad, die facing up with the paper still inside, Silicon Rubber Pad. Leave the paper in the die and ink the star with Peeled Paint ink.

The tree was also die cut from Specialty stamping paper and dry embossed. While still in the die, I inked the ornaments with Barn Door Distress Ink. Remove from the die and ink the rest of the tree with Peeled Paint. The banner was done in the same way, only inking it with Antique Linen instead. I attached the tree and the banner with foam dots. The stand of the tree got a bit crooked when I took the photo, it is straight again now.
Thank you so much for looking!
Have a great weekend!
