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.

Hero Arts clear stamps (Christmas) Laughter and Joy, Lawn Fawn clear stamps and cuts Quinn's ABCs, Lawn Fawn clear stamps Quinn's Capital ABCs, Kaisercraft clear stamps Sweet Pea
ink: Memento Ink Pad in Tuxedo Black 
paper: gold A6 card, Rosie's Studio 6x6 pad Just Jolly
accessories: foam tape/squares, rhinestones
