My Newest Xmas Card design



Edited/Updated: 05 Dec
As I mentioned in the post below, I wasn't completely happy with the card... I liked the general idea of the design... So, here is the design I put into "mass production":





Swapped out the stamped black tree, changed the banner to gold cord with sequins (which I glued at regular intervals), and used lighter greens for the two other trees!

I'm still crafting away; trying to get all my Christmas cards made (ideally they will be done by December 1st... yikes!).

Here's a design I was playing around with last night. The first layer of coloured paper is taped straight to the card, but the next layer (hexagonal design) is raised slightly (foam tape). I used foam squares on the letters, banner, and two of the trees also.

Thanks to my brother's critique, I think on the next one I will use lighter green paper for the two green trees, so they stand out better.
