Dashing Christmas Trees

I just wanted to show you one of the cards we made at a workshop today:

The background cardstock is Real Red. The next layer is Old Olive textured cardstock. The next layer is Real Red and is mounted up on dimensionals. Then there is a layer of Confetti White.

The Christmas Trees are made using the Dashing DSP, and I have sponged Old Olive ink along their edges to give some depth. The 'feature' tree is mounted up on dimensionals. This tree is decorated with a star punched from Brushed Gold cardstock, and three baubles also punched from Brushed Gold carstock using a 1/4 inch circle punch. The star is mounted using dimensionals and the baubles are mounted with glue dots.

The tree trunks are Chocolate Chip cardstock that I have distressed using the tips of scissors. The 'Merry Christmas' greeting is stamped in Real Red classic ink and is from the Season of Joy stamp set.

I'll take a photo of the second card tomorrow!

Have a great weekend.
