Holiday Trees

If you've been reading my posts lately, you know that I've made quite a few different designs of holiday cards this year.  I wanted to make a card that had a humble Christmas tree on the front.  Even with that idea in mind, I still made 3 different designs!!

This first one, I used a pine branch punch to create the greenery for the tree.  The embossing was done using  a folder with my Cuttlebug.

The stars were clear (I couldn't find gold ones) that I recolored using a Copic Marker.  The Ribbon is from May Arts.

This one was made using snowflake shapes that I cut on my Cameo. I cut them in different colors of green cardstock and layered them.

The ornaments are red rhinestones.

The card has some nice texture to it and a bit of dimension.

And this one was made using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch to create the greenery.  I really like how each of them turned out!
