A quick search of my used christmas card box turned up this card front.
I raided my packets of gems and found suitable ones to cover the baubles and a large wooden sparkly star for the top of the tree. Then I just went to town on adding bits and bobs for the rest of the texture element. I found christmas tree ribbon, spotty ribbon, wooden sparkly presents, red netting and patterned acetate and this is the end result. Sentiment is a Britannia die cut.
I have spent all day trying to get decent photos and finally came back upstairs and took the photo below which show the true colours.
I used dark green card stock and made the card up with three layers this time including the acetate front sheet.
To make my second card I raided my christmas box and found this Inky Delicious 'Winter Cabin' stamp. I created a background using several ink pads , a torn piece of card for the hills and Inky Delicious Fluffy Puffy Stuff dimensional. I covered several cardboard tree shapes with washi tape and created a collage of 4 different sizes. The white oblong border was left over from making a shaker card the other day and was still on my desk.
Sentiment was from a packet of premade ones that I adhered to a slightly larger piece of the base card. I have used green christmas tree ribbon here. Photo below shows the dimension of the washi tape trees that I adhered to the front of the card with double 3d pads to gain the height as the Puffy fluffy stuff wasn't quite dry when I assembled it. Not showing up very clearly but the trees and snow have liberal helpings of Stickles 'Disco Ball' applied.
